    My anti-virus programs & firewall do a good job.

    If I was to write a virus, I would name it Trusted Installer & give it elevated privileges.
    Or Owner,System,Administrator, etc., etc. .

    If I ever have a problem caused by taking ownership, I will post it.

    Has anyone here had a problem because they took ownership ?
    Please post if you have.

    It's not just the "System32" folder, that particular folder, contains a whole mess of heavy duty Snap-Ins for the Management Console.

    I don't get it, I was able to drop a file right in there, it asked me for permission, then it dropped it right in. Trusted Installer does not even have full access, User has some access, I would try to elevate "User" and then try again - The security on Windows 8 Folders is difficult to modify, you have to add the user under "audit" then then again in "permissions"
