Take ownership runs when i want to run belarc advisor

Hey,

I applied those registry entries a while ago, and I find them very useful, so thanks for that.
The only thing is, I've got a few lil problems since I use Take Ownership, i.e. when I try to run a program, Take Ownership runs instead. That happens with Belarc Advisor(i want to retrieve my windows key), and it happened with two other programs too, but I can't remember which ones. When I try to run Belarc Advisor, take wonership takes ownership of belarcadvisor.exe, after that, nothing happens.
I cannot think of any cause for this phenomenon. Any experience or advice on this?
Thanks

Hello sum1, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It sounds like it's an issue with the "Run as administrator" for .exe files. The tutorial has been updated since the last time you used it. Please download and merge the newer .reg file in step 2 or 3 (for what you want) to update it, and see how it does now.

Excellent, that did the trick. I didn't knew you updated it, belarc advisor works fine now.
Thanks!

Thank you so so much!
But I don't understand why Microsoft thought that a system administrator on a Windows 7 x64 Ultimate needed special permission to have access and delete files!
I usually need to empty the C drive's temp folder before switching off the computer and had limitations on my own system!

You're most welcome looked. Windows is protective of it's system files by default to help prevent unwanted access or changes to them. If you did need access or to make changes, then you would usually need to have to take ownership first.

It's basically a safety and security feature.

Was working/ not now:
So having used this magic script for over a year (thank you), suddenly it no longer works.

Acts like it's working:
I appears to work as it always did, Cmd opens, text scrolls past as the operation is applied to all of the files.

Makes no changes:
But the "Read Only" box remains checked so my batch processing programs won't work until I manually remove the Read Only via Windows Properties.

Tried these fixes:
Turned off security programs (yes whilst off line)

Uninstalled/ rebooted/ reinstalled/ rebooted Take Ownership

Downloaded fresh copy of Take Ownership and repeated above.

Still not working at all. Ideas?

Hello LegBiter,

You would need to remove the read-only attribute before it will work.

Read-only File and Folder Attribute

If you like, using the context menu below can make it faster to remove read-only if you have many to do.

File and Folder - Add "Set and Unset as Read-only" to Context Menu

Hope this helps.
