Windows 7: I DID take ownership of the Win7 Drive, yesterday. Now?

Windows 7 Ultimate x32
I DID take ownership of the Win7 Drive, yesterday. Now?

I DID take ownership of the Win7 Drive, yesterday, after re-installing Win7 Ultimate. What sturm un drang should I expect for doing so?

Haven't noticed any difficulties yet. I tried to give myself more permissions for c:\windows but got too many access denied so I removed myself from the 'list'

BTW, I frequently run into problems with computers, sys, freeware, etc. however I do so knowing quite well that someone I know or have yet to meet will do something similar. The 'learning curve'' I think of as education, any damages as tuition.

Thanks for any replies!

Took Ownership of the C: (Windows 7) drive
I have a folder which has no owner and allows no access. Attempting to do any security related operation causes a denial of access, of that folder (a problem in itself). So, I thought changing ownership of the c: drive would help. With the hope that some recursive operation would allow me to...
