You should first take ownership (via advanced permissions) and then close the permission box
reopen and change permissions

ive had already take ownership to administrator thats the only thing it lets you change but still cant change security or permision.

Did you add Administrator

to the list of users with permissions.

If the file has permissions for SYSTEM and nobody else and you did not add your account to the list it will not let you change anything else until you do. You should be able to add users to the list once you have ownership.
