I need to copy-replace system files in Windows folder of another drive. I keep getting "you need permission" access restrictions no matter what I do or whether or not UAC is disabled. Can I disable this idiotic, paranoid feature once and for all permanently? Please no philosophizing, just tell me how to get this thing to leave me alone.

It should go without saying, but before following these steps you need to do a backup!!!

1/ Download the attached file and rename to .reg
2/ Right-click on the file and select Merge option.
3/ Now, you will see a new option named Take Ownership when you right-click on a file or folder.

Now you can take ownership of a file and copy-replace

Option 2. Use a Linux Bootable USB. There are lots of guides. Here is just 1

Linux does not look at Windows file permissions so you can do what you like to Windows system files while running Linux
