Windows 7: Access denied trying to give myself rights

Access denied trying to give myself rights

Hey!
All of a sudden yesterday, Steam started giving me error messages when trying to download or update games. They were saying: "An error occured when trying to install. (Disk write error)". I found out it was not only steam, but I also cant install programs or anything else on the drive. I'm talking about my second drive, where I store all my large files. My main one is a SSD dedicated to OS.

Anyway, digging into the problem I found out I can't give my self full rights to different folders on that drive, so I followed this tutorial. When finished, and everything still working I still get an error message! What the actual ****.

The box marked in red is the error I'm getting:


Help anyone?
By the way, awesome nostalgic smileys. RIP MSN.
