Changing/adding permissions is not the same as taking ownership. I suppose
it's always possible that in Vista's myriad of variants, some don't

"Security", "Advanced", "Owner", "Edit...". That should get you far enough
for you to accomplish this task.
As you may know, being Administrator on Vista does not mean you have
special permissions beyond that of a regular user if UAC is on. Either
turn that off or make sure you "run as" Administrator. Either option
will get you elevated administrator permissions.
