You have to take ownership in windows 7. The way I did it is rt click on My Computer> rt click on "C" drive> click on properties> open the security tab. There you will see your name as administrator. Make sure there are checks for allow. Click on advanced button and open th eowner tab. You will have to edit the current owner and put your name or ID in. This should give you ownership of entire system.
