Windows 7: unable to save permission changes on ExplorerFrame.dll

unable to save permission changes on ExplorerFrame.dll

hey everyone,
Im trying to replace my explorerframe.dll to one that suits my visual style. Im using a program called windows theme installer, which does it for you. However it says that access is denied to changing files.
So i went into the system32 folder and gave myself full control on the explorerframe.dll file. I am now trying to give myself full control of the explorerframe.dll in the sysWOW64 directory too, but after pressing apply it says access is denied to saving changes.

I have windows 7 x64 service pack 1, and UAC disabled. A few weeks ago i did need to make use of the /sfc scannow command, as i rushed through some customization steps, could that be the cause or something similar?

Thanks for any help

I have literally changed hundreds of system files using this method below.
To properly change a system file you need to take ownership give yourself permission and rename the old file and then copy in the new one, look at Post #6 of this thread will tell you how to do it Basic Networking Information
