    You might check to see if this may be a reminder file set to run in your startup programs causing this.

    I checked. Only "Windows 8 Firewall Control" shows up under startup. Looks like by signing up for a BD account, it must have deleted the dll or file automatically? Wish I knew what file or dll it was, but at least no more popups for now anyway.

    I dont know whats going on with the "take ownership" right clicking. No matter what file I try it on, a command window pops up and closes in 1 second. Wonder what could be wrong?

    That's normal if you used step 2.

    If you want the command prompt to pause, you'll need to use step 3 instead.

    Oh I see. So that's normal to have that happen? I guess I would be able to "take ownership" then of the file after the command window disappears?

    The take ownership context menu automatically opens a command window, runs the command to take ownership of the item you right clicked on, then the command prompt closes. Since it happens so quickly, that is why all you see is a quick flash of the command prompt when using step 2.

    Step 3 pauses the command prompt after the command has run to allow you to see the results before pressing a key to close the command prompt.

    OK thanks Brink for clearing that up. Thought it was Windows 8 fighting it.

    Hello quavadisuk,

    If you wanted the command prompt to pause, did you use the download in step 3?
