    When discussing how to rename or delete the LOGON.SCR file, it says you can right click & under security tab there is an option to "Take Ownership". I didn't see any such option. I have a Windows 2000 5.0.2195 Service Pack 4. I have my Product Key number but I don't know how to recover my Admin password. I've been searching for free ways to do it & I thought this one would provide me the answer but I cannot rename the Logon file because of permission restriction.

    Can anybody help clarify this part of that article:

    "Note: If you having problem to delete or rename LOGON.SCR, it may be due to permission settings. Try to take ownership of the LOGON.SCR (by right clicking on LOGON.SCR, then select Properties and go to the Security tab, then click on the Ownership. Click “Take Ownership” and then click Yes to the prompt message.)...."

    Where can I find the option to "Take Ownership" of that file?
