    Trying to take ownership of Content.IE5 - Access is denied


    ​I'm trying to take ownership of a shortcut to: C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c get_iplayer_web_pvr.cmd

    When I try, I get:
    Code:
    SUCCESS: The file (or folder): "C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe" now owned by user "ELLIOT-PC\kingm".
    processed file: C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe
    C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\Content.IE5\*: Access is denied.
    Successfully processed 1 files; Failed processing 1 files
    Press any key to continue . . .
    I have taken ownership (folders and all content within) of:

    • C:\Users\kingm\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\Content.IE5 (which, I believe, is a Junction)
    • C:\Users\kingm\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE

    Any ideas?

    That file is a Junction Point. A hidden system file.

    The real file is here:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE

    Be very cautious taking ownership of deeply hidden System Junction Points residing in the System Profile.

    I took ownership of C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE but I still get the same messages.

    What does this do? C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c get_iplayer_web_pvr.cmd

    I do not have anything like it on my machine. Closest I could find was a Github reference to a Web Player.

    That's right; it's for get_iplayer's Web PVR Manager.

    Since I have no knowledge of this function or what it is intended for, maybe the Github link of the project and documentation will give you some answers. It does look, though, as if the permissions assigned do not allow a user to take ownership as that may break code. Best I can do is give you a link to the Github project, and let you search and read thru it. May be some answers.
