renaming a dll

I need to rename wintrust.dll in c:\winnt\system32 in order to go around an Outlook 98 installation problem.  I use NTFS on my drive C.  I tried using the rename command from the command prompt but it just copies the file to wintrust.old and still maintains wintrust.dll.
HOw do I go about this?
Thanks!

In safe mode rename ALL dll in the Windows Partition.
Then copy the new one at the right place.

The file is probably being restored through the DLL cache.  Remove it first from the dllcache folder, then from the system32 folder.
