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'.
