Windows 7 file delete “trusted installer” error

Well in another move of sheer brilliance Windows 7 creates files that require voodoo to delete…in this case my backup program copied my C drive, but I am redoing the backup and was faced with dozens (hundreds? thousands?) of files that required “trusted installer” to delete them.

Answer here:

Except there are still a few files (ok, 7926 files) where even though I’m now the owner, it still says I can’t delete them!  However I could at least rename the top level dir to fubar so I know to get rid of it someday.
