.REG files themselves are actually text files.

So you can DL them and open them in a text editor. I /always/ do that to make sure it isn't adding anything "funny"

TEWS post there is in fact merely the contents of the takeonwership.reg file loaded into notepad (or some text editor) if I'm not mistaken

Like me, if you feel uncomfortable downloading unknown registry editors you can simply right click on the file/folder/drive you want to take ownership of, go to properties, select the security tab, click edit, and from there you'll see where you can change ownership.
