Windows 7: Windows 7 - Cannot Boot (ExplorerFrame.dll corrupted?)

Windows 7 - Cannot Boot (ExplorerFrame.dll corrupted?)

So here is my story:

I used a software called Custopack Tools to make my Windows 7 look like a Mac. I got an error..which I forgot what it said. When I restarted my computer, an error popped up when I typed in my password to log on to Windows. Here is the error:
"C:\Windows\system32\EXPLORERFRAME.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support."
That error popped up, and it loads up a black screen with only that error and my cursor. I tried booting into safe mode, but there is still that black screen with the error. I really need help. How do I fix this. Thanks

I can't do a system restore. I can't do anything because of the black screen.

Have you not got the win 7 disc or a boot disc?

Never mind. I got it working by going to Safe Mode with Command Prompt and typing in sfc /scannow.
