Default How to login as a "Trusted Installer"

I am trying to replace a file and vista is not allowing me to do it even logged in as an Adminisistrator. It looks as if only this Trusted Installer account has access to it. I am trying to replace wordpad.exe.mui in case anyone is wondering.

You need to take "ownership" of the file.


I possess a device, in my pocket, that is capable of accessing the entirety of information known to man. I use it to look at pictures of cats and get in arguments with strangers.
