in the device manager enable the Administrator account (Please give a
password to the account ), go into the local security policy (start => run
=> secpol.msc) under local policies => security Options => interactive logon:
do not display last user logon. this will let you choose what use to logon
with, logon as the administrator and try taking ownership of the files.
