I found a hint about
 takeown /f c:\windows\system32\d3d8.dll
 takeown /f c:\windows\system32\d3d9.dll
in http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=15436, though I'd be
surprised if that works around WFP ...?

In any case, a OSE GA installer is on
now. It also installs the D3D[89].dll to the installation dir, so, anyone
can copy them in safe mode later on ...
