You will find it easier to replace the entire .dll's - you can get fresh ones from the installation dvd.

7-zip will open it for you.

Why not?

It's probably easier than what you are trying to do now.

If you want all your icons back to win 7 defaults - you can copy the imageres.dll and shell32.dll from the installation dvd.

7- zip will let you see inside the installation iso - and inside the install.wim ( in the "sources" folder ), you can then copy them out.

Is there something hard to understand about that
