Windows 7: What .dll file is this?

What .dll file is this?

I am seeking help, I can't find the answers on the internet. So, I decided to join this forum and looking forward for answers on my situation.

Five months ago, I manually installed a theme on my desktop, I even replaced some .dll files on my system32 and sysWOW64, specifically are explorer.exe, Explorerframe.dll, shell32.dll and timedate.cpl

Now this started my problem, when I try to upload pictures on facebook and try to navigate or explore the pictures on my computer, I can't find the back button or the directories on the left side pane, this is how it exactly looks like:


Also, I want this to be clear that when I run my explorer.exe it really runs normal, it looks like this:


I am experiencing this problem when I am using any browsers that are installed on my computer and then try upload a picture or saving a picture and asks me where is the file or where should I save the file, please help me, I am pretty sure it started when I manually installed my theme, and please help me how to replace them because when I try to replaced these files on my system32, that the files are being used and can't be replaced. I even attempted to replace the files on safemode and I have a full control in these folders. Please help me.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

If you want to go back to the default look use Option 2 of this tutorial SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker it will not harm any data or programs. If you used Universal Theme Patcher you will need to run it again.

If you want to change system files look at Post #6 of this thread Basic Networking Information
