    Need Administrator Permission


    I'm trying to replace calc.exe in the System 32 folder with a version from XP, but keep getting a notice that I don't have permission. I'm in as the Administrator, what more do I need to do?

    Thanks!

    Sorry, I figured it out. I downloaded and installed the "take ownership" registry hack and it worked.

    So is the permissions thing a bug, or just MS trying to keep people out of the Windows files?

    Probably (most likely) to keep people from messing up important files.
