How do i replace dll files?

Hi all,

Im trying to use a custom theme and i got everthing working except for the icons. I have been following this guide: How to Take Ownership and Grant Permissions in Windows Vista My Digital Life on how to replace the shell32.dll but when i try to actually replace it it still says i need permission. Im using build 7100 if that matters.

I've never actually replaced it, but try taking ownership and then changing the name to shell32.dll.bak

Then copy/paste the one you want in there into the same folder that is in.
