Thanks for the link. Seems like a lot of work to change something you seldom see

Anyway, two things come to mind.

1. Disable UAC, reboot and try it.
2. Boot to Safe Mode and try it.

my UAC was off and tried in safe more, still no success. it wouldnt let me copy and replace but would let me add files so i added the new file renamed the old one and then renamed the new one to the name of the old one. seems to have worked!

was meant to be an easy quick thing to do but when it didnt work i couldnt be defeated, thank god its over!!

thank you for you time and help!
