Windows 7: Deleted Shellstyle.dll

Deleted Shellstyle.dll

Hi Guys, I was using Resource Hacker to remove my Windows Explorer FolderBand, I did it before, but forgot how and it said I didn't have permission, I tried ending explorer.exe, nothing, then deleted it but forgot I have delete files when moved to Recycle bin so couldn't restore.

I am thinking to either do a restore using Recuva or run a SFC /SCANNOW thing, but I don't want to restart as Explorer folders now don't open and currently have one already opened which I don't want to close.

Please help guys.

Cheers, Joe.

scannow would likely be your best bet if the above is the case.
From the sound of it if you reboot you will be unable to even run a repair install.

Honestly customization is not my strongest point. You may want to look into the customization section and post again.

Hmm, I noticed Start and Stop DWM in the Context Menu, did you add these, if so how can I remove them?

No worries, just removed from regedit.
