    Cool WinOwnership lets you take ownership of a file at the click of a button

    You know what a complicated procedure you have to follow to take ownership of a system file even if you're logged in as Administrator. Well, from now on all you have to do is to drag & drop the file on to an app called "WinOwnership" and then click the "Apply" button. Works with Windows XP up to Windows 8 in both 32-bit and 64-bit editions and also Windows Server editions.

    Requires .NET Framework v4.0
    Important to note if you have a restricted download speed, a download cap or a small System drive.

    Restricted download speed? It's only a 2MB file. Even if you've only got a 56K, it's not going to take you more than 30 mins to download I would have thought.

    As for myself, I have ADSL2+ and download took just one second.

    Possibly satrow was referring to the size of the .NET Framework v4.0 not that of WinOwnership?

    If that is the case, then it shouldn't be a problem. NET framework 4.0 was released in April 2010 and I think most users will have it already.

    Not so many of the users that have the following restrictions:
    a restricted download speed, a download cap or a small System drive

    Well, if you don't have .NET Framework 4.0 installed, you can get it from here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downl....aspx?id=17718
