I recently downloaded an application file (.exe), and tried to delete it, but i keep getting the error "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item".
I tried changing the ownership of the file > right click > properties > security > owner >edit >selected my user account (administrator) > and clicked ok. All i got was an "access is denied error".
I even tried going to cmd and using the takeown and icacls functions, but am still getting the access is denied error.
Any advice on how to take ownership of this file is greatly appreciated.
