Windows 7: Can't move files from folder to folder

Can't move files from folder to folder

Hello, I am trying to install a theme and I need to replace the shell32.dll... So I took ownership of the original, renamed it shell32.dll.backup, and then tried dragging the new shell32 in... It said it moved, however, I looked in the System32 folder and there is no shell32.dll, only the backup. It will not move files to any other folder than the one it is currently in... Any help is appreciated

Well I waited a while to change the explorerframe.dll and it worked, so then I tried shell32.dll and it didn't work.

Welcome to Seven Forums . First I suggest you make a complete system image, just in case anything goes awry.

Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

Or use Acronis, Macrium Reflect, etc. Whichever imaging program you prefer

Now try using System File Replacer by ~xuliikoo on deviantART

See if that works.
