When attempting to TAKE OWNERSHIP of the PROGRAM FILES folder (and all subfolders) I received the following error:

ERROR APPLYING SECURITY:
An error occurred while applying security information to:
C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Smart Security\callmsi.exe

Access is Denied.

I installed and tried this, and it looked like a command prompt window came up and left, however, how do I know if this worked? Should I see my user account on the security tab of the object I attempted to take ownership of? Because if that's the case, my user account is not there.

Can you skip it, or did it stop there?

You may want to disable ESET for this action.

The command prompt flashing is a sign it worked. Try installing now.

You get the option to CONTINUE/CANCEL, and I continued. It came up with that error for just about every single file under the ESET folder location.

ESET is not installed at the moment. I am attempting to reinstall it.

I cannot delete the ESET folder. Even after taking permissions I still do not have rights to. So I tried to reinstalled the software into C:\Program Files\ESET SS

I get the error:
THE INSTALLER HAS INSUFFICIENT PRIVILEGES TO MODIFY THIS FILE:
C:\PROGRAMDATA\ESET\ESET SMART SECURITY\EHTTPSVR.XML

Do I need to take ownership of C:\ProgramData and all subfolders now?

Okay, can you restate your problem? You can't install any programs, or just ESET?
