Help finding thread/application

A couple of days back there was an xp tips style thread and in one of the posts was a link to a load of useful apps and various searches within the forum draw a blank.

One of which allowed you to regain control of a folder, which XP in its wisdom decides to lock you out of after a reinstall, without having to fiddle with simple file sharing etc.

Has anyone got the thread bookmarked, or know the link to the page?

Cheers Vog & skidzy.

The reason i didnt want to use the manual method is the number of files to regain ownership of [my games folder, i've got a large no of abandonware dos games] but hence discovered i can take ownership of the whole directory, even the folders it didnt lock me out of strangely.

It did slow my pc down somewhat whilst doing it mind and took a while.

Had a look through those threads i couldnt see it, but at least now there is a load of useful stuff where i can find it.

Thanks again
