I have tried several custom explorerframe.dll files. Someone please help me. I have Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate.
Edit: When I think about it, I recall that I replaced the ExplorerFrame.dll file in C:\Windows\ as well as the ExplorerFrame.dll in C:\Windows\system32\ . Could that be the problem? I read in the guide afterwards that I was supposed to replace only the ExplorerFrame.dll inside the system32 folder.
First make sure you are logged in as an administrator.
Turn off UAC completely (it might interfere).
Now implement this regfile into your registry : http://www.blogsdna.com/wp-content/u...eownership.zip
You then have the option "take ownership" in your rightclick menu.
Now, to make it clear, only the file in system32 needs to be replaced.
Leave the other one as is...
Now rightclick explorerframe.dll (in system32) and choose take "ownership".
Now rightclick it again and rename it to explorerframe.dll.backup
Now copy/paste your custom explorerframe.dll to the folder and reboot.
