First turn off UAC User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings Option 1 (take note of your current setting before turning it off) after you are done changing your .dll/file turn the UAC back to your current settings. Be sure to restart after turning it off and then again when turning it back on.

Right click on the .dll/file and go to 'properties'.

Rename the .dll/file to .bak like shell32.bak.dll
Note: I use .old on shell32 all others I use .bak
Then paste in your replacement file.

You will have both .dll & .bak.dll if you need to go back.
