Trying to replace ws2_32.dll and wsock32.dll

I've created a spy ws2_32.dll and wsock32.dll program that I need for troubleshooting purposes.
I'm trying to replace my ws2_32.dll and wsock32.dll, but everytime I replace it, the OS seems to be replacing the new DLLs with the OS version.

I've even tried rebooting into safe mode, and replacing the files.  That works at first, but when I reboot to normal mode, the OS forces reboot over and over again.

Is there anywayt to replace these DLL's without having the OS putting them back to original OS versions?

You need to copy the files to c:\windows\system32\dllcache as well.  Windows File Protection is nailing you there.  By putting the files in their, YOUR files will be the "backup" files.
