First make you sure there's a program selected to open that kind of file.

Then follow these steps:

– Right click on the file or folder
– Click on the Security tab
– Click on Advanced tab
– Celect Change Permissions
– Double click on the permission entries
– Uncheck Deny
– Ok, Apply

When you take ownership of the System32 files

.. Just btw., been meaning to post in this thread in, like, forever!.. :) For FILES ownership, so (basically) nothing to do with the registry, you can bypass the Windblow$ permissions system entirely (very easily!) using a simple utility, like, teh (Ghisler) Total Commander @


^^ And all you gotta do is Run as administrator (from the right-click menu)

Edit: You will get NO questions, like:

You don't currently have permission to access this folder
