Changing Program Files permissions in Windows 7

Hello Experts!  I need to add some different permissions and change some permissions on a Windows 7 Pro PC in the Program Files x86 directory.  Every time I attempt this Windows security prevents this change from happening.  I am logged on as the domain administrator and I have turned off User Account Control.  What else needs to be done to change the permissions?  Please advise.  Thanks!

You may have to take ownership as well.
