Windows 7: Can't move authui.dll back to system32 folder.

Can't move authui.dll back to system32 folder.

If i try to move it there it asks for permission, i give it, it flashes and nothing happends. I'm pretty sure if my pc were to restart i'd be completely ****ed. How can i move it? Should i remove my account so that windows starts up automatically so that maybe i can use my pc again without a reinstall? Imgur: The magic of the Internet
