You can to give yourself permission. Right click on the file. Under Properties. Then clisk the Security tab. From there click the Advanced Tab. Then click the Owner Tab. Then click Edit. Then select your user Profile. Click apply. A message should pop up saying something about giving you permission.

Then just click OK your way back to the Windows screen. You should now be able to edit the file and do what you want with it. You will have to do this for each and every file.

You wont be able to do it with the whole folder. You will have to do it with indiviual files. With the System32 folder many of those are dedicated system files and wont allow for overwritting. So you ahve to only overwrite the ones you need. If they dont allow for it then you have to find real drivers.

Why is that? To keep stability of the system and prevent people from altering files that could cause system instability is stupid? Sorry but i have to disagree. System stability is what matters. By altering any of the files you take the chance of making the system unstable. With each file edit it becomes more unstable till finally it cant work.

Then you come around here and yell and gripe cause your system dont work. Just like with XP. So now they have prevented issues like this and you still complain cause they want to keep a sense of stability. I think that is more stupid than getting the correct driver files, instead of trying to alter them yourself...
