Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Some of us may have encountered this error especially when opening folder like system volume information for example. You can take ownership of that folder, This is also helpful when you have just cleaned up your system of virus but you cannot open certain drives or folders.
You can also use this technique to disable the permissions of other administrators of the system so that no one but YOU can access the folder.

if you are logged in as the administrator by following the steps below.
1)Right click on the folder and click properties.
2)Remove the read only check box and click apply.
3)Click on the security tab and click advanced.
4)Click on the owner tab.
5)Click on the Edit button since you want to edit the permissions.
6)This window should pop up. Select your username if you want exclusive access or select administrators to allow all administrators to be able to access it and check the box replace owners on subcontainers and objects.
7) A window will pop up asking you to confirm. Click YES.
8) A message will pop up asking you to close the folder and re-open. Click ok.
