Hey, so I have a failed download (Vuze_Installer.exe) whose "Owner cannot be displayed" sitting in my Downloads folder. I am unable to take ownership of the file, and thus, cannot delete it. Suggestions, anyone? lol

Great stuff -- saves no end of hassle while messing about with new systems.

Works in VISTA as well.
