    no permission system32 sysWOW64, Program Files\WindowsApps

    Here I am again with my issues...
    So, I have Windows 8.1 installed, with latest updates. And I had to write into system32. I tried to take ownership with the regfile trick. No success. I got so angry, that I booted up ubuntu, and copied from there.
    (it was a joypad driver correction, because it loaded the 32bit one and it crashed...)

    Now I want to try out XBOX360 controller emulator on asphalt 8. Aaand I have no permission to write in the folder. (also, no ownership to execute apps from that folder)
    I took ownership. I have administrator privileges. I have tried administrator built in account. I have added my normal UAC enabled user to the group with full privileges. I have even tried an elevated command promt. Nothing helped. What's going on?

    Disabling Nod32v7 didn't help...

    Taking ownership usually works but as you know Windows like to defends its privileges...
