    When I clicked Take Ownership of Program files it started running C:\Windows\System32 making me owner of everything I guess?

    When you right click on "Program Files" folder, then click "Take Ownership", command prompt window should pop-up with  hundreds of files flying through it for a good while.
    When it finally stops, you should see a long list starting with:
    SUCCESS! The file <or folder> now owned by your name

    I just oerformed very same command, and the files are still flying through cmd window. When it's done, I'll post a screenshot (time depends on number of installed programs - a lot here).
