The action can't be completed because the folder or file is open in another folder.

Never mind, had to change the one in there to ExplorerFrame.dll.old and then I could add it in.

Now I have another problem



It's still at the edge and has a white background around it.

Bitmaps can be a tricky image to edit get a another copy of that ExplorerFrame.dll that came with the theme and edit it again but saved it as a .png then go to this site Online Image Converter in converted to a .bmp and try it again.

I don't think I even have the Aero ExplorerFrame.dll as my desktop got messy , I will try to keep it organised in labelled folders so I know what everything is..
