Windows 7: Partition ownership including windows folder changed

Partition ownership including windows folder changed


Ever since i changed the owner for my partition containing the windows folder, ive been getting all sorts of weird trouble, like the thrash bin has been damaged(but that is fixed now)

Been trying to install updates and files, but they all point at "permission issues"(most likely caused by not having permissions to run their temp created install packages)

Tried MS FixIT solutions.

Off topic: Not sure if this is in the correct section

Any thoughts?
