    Cannot import. Error accessing the registry

    So I downloaded this thing called TakeOwnership. It's a .reg file, and when I try to run it, it says "Cannot import C:\Users\Nikki\Downloads\InstallTakeOwnership.reg: Error accessing the registry." Any help?

    P.S. When I right-click the file, and click on Edit, it gives me this:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\runas]
    @="Take Ownership"
    "NoWorkingDirectory"=""

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\runas\command]
    @="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" && icacls \"%1\" /grant Администраторы:F"
    "IsolatedCommand"="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" && icacls \"%1\" /grant Администраторы:F"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\runas]
    @="Take Ownership"
    "NoWorkingDirectory"=""

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\runas\command]
    @="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" /r /d y && icacls \"%1\" /grant Администраторы:F /t"
    "IsolatedCommand"="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" /r /d y && icacls \"%1\" /grant Администраторы:F /t"

    on Notepad

    Hello LayzieBone,

    That registry file data is incorrect or has been corrupted. Try the one in the link below instead.

    Context Menu - Take Ownership

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Um, ok. Are you merging it while logged in as an administrator?

    If you type regedit in the Start Menu search box and press enter, does it open the Registry Editor for you?
