changes to windows explorer

Hi all, a while back I made a couple of small changes to windows explorer as the picture shows. I did it to accommodate a great theme I was using at the time (Mr. Grims Nucleus blue) . My question is now that I am no longer using the previously mentioned theme how can I get my explorer window back to its default look?

How did you modify explorer the first time? Did you not back up the file first?

Run system file checker
System File Checker - SFC /SCANNOW Command

If you have a convenient system restore point, then by all means simply use system restore. Please rad the following:

I used restorator to modify explorer the first time and no unfortunately i did not make a back up. Karl, i wish I could use system restore but this was done a wile ago and sicne then I have made other changes to my system such as installing/uninstalling programs and adding files which i would like to keep and not have to go back and find again later. If someone has an unchanged copy of these files and would be willing to upload them on here so I can get them and replace my other files with them it would be greatly appreciated. I need explorer.exe, explorerframe.dll and shell32.dll all for windows 7 home premium x86 thanks

SFC only fixes some problems with your system files and only with your system files.

What I am saying is that there is absolutely no way that SFC has undone changes you made unless those changes alter system files. You and no other program, other than from MS, should be altering system files.
