    Hi RabMonk006

    Welcome to the forum. :party

    You may not have a take ownership problem. You will need to turn UA
    back on to do this. When you drag one folder from Program Files t
    another folder in Program Files, you should have to click "Yes" and th
    UAC "Continue" twice per action. I hope you did not mess up anythin
    when you took ownership of the whole boot drive with Vista on it. :eek

    Hope this helps
