I had this exact problem yesterday! Couldn't rename a .dll; access was denied. Found this tutorialand it worked like a charm.

I used the manual method (about halfway down the page) in the cmd line, using the takeown command and then icacls. note: I did have to boot into safe mode to execute these, as I guess TrustedInstaller is always running in the background and won't relinquish control in normal operating mode.
