Why are you using the command line? You can do this through the GUI by right-clicking on the folder, and going to Properties > Security > Advanced > Owner > Edit. I have used this successfully on all computers brought in for backup and restore where the original OS was not bootable, and thus the original owner was invalid.

"Because it's my computer." There is no better reason than that.

OK, you may have an illegal or hacked copy, and that could be why the registry change doesn't work.

We cannot help with anything but legal software, sorry.
