Is that the one to be put in the system32 folder or the other one?

Hi! Ive been following threads and discussions regarding missing icons for those who uninstalled Hyperdesk themes. I finally found this one but sadly, the solution was for a 64bit Win7. I would like to bump this thread and see if anyone can help me fix the same problem the threadstarted had. Only thing is, Im running a 32 bit Win7. Thanks guys!

Here's exactly what I did:

Took ownership of both imageres.dll in system32 and SysWOW64 folders.
Replaced them with your .rar files (renamed the originals).
Rebuild the icon cache and deleted thumbnail cache (in that order).
Restarted the machine.
Nothing changed so I rebuild the icon cache again, deleted the thumbnail cache again. Restarted again (don't know how often I restarted now...) But same result

One thing I noticed is that all folder icons on the desktop show up right but it's only the Windows Explorer that shows missing icons, like in the screeshots I posted in #1.

Maybe it's not the imageres.dll but another resource file in Windows? Or are all icons in that file?
In case you are unaware of it, "rar" is a compression format and the files need to be decompressed before use.

Just an FYI.
