Access denied even after taking ownership

Hello,
I am logged on as an administrator. I am trying to move a dll file to my c:\Program Files(x86)\Game directory. When I try to apply full access to the destination folder all the checkmarks disappear when I click apply. When I try to open the dll file with notepad, windows tells me I have to get permission from (myself). I can't change permissions for (x86) folder, so I moved the directory in question to c:\games. I am still being denied access to both the dll file and the C:\games directory when trying to copy. is there a 3rd party utility that will solve my problem?

  1. Do a google search for the 'take ownership' registry hack - this should fix it for you.
