HHello there,

How can i access the windows\system32\explorerframe.dll and delete it, if it cannot be accessed through the explorer?

Is there a way to delete and rename .dll files via the command prompt?

I have attempted the same process as in the thread titled: Replaceing ExplorerFrame.dll file in Windows 7, but now get the "class not registered" and cannot access the file as normal to delete and replace the corrupt explorerframe.dll file.

As in the above thread I took ownership...used a program called restorer to access the .dll and replace the images with my own. The original explorerframe.dll is still in the system folder...just renamed explorerframe1.dll.

How can i fix this?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

Might I ask why you are trying to get rid of explorerframe.dll?

It is an esstenial part of the operating system, this is why the OS is trying to prevent its removal.

Thanks,
Noam

Hi,

I believe it is best to let Microsoft's SFC sort it out, here is a Microsoft endorsed solution:

System File Checker (SFC) checks that all Windows Vista system files are where they should be as they were by default and not corrupted, changed, or damaged.

1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and  select Run as Administrator.

2. Click Continue or supply Administrator credentials if prompted.

3. In the Command Prompt window type the following, and press Enter:

   sfc /scannow

4. You should see the following on-screen message:

    Beginning the system scan. This process will take some time.

    Beginning verification phase of system scan.

    Verification % complete.

5. Once the scan has completed, test to see whether the issue that you are experiencing is resolved or not.

Currenntly there are two files in each the system32 file and the wow64 file that are named ExplorerFrame.dll and ExplorerFrame1.dll for a total of 4

The 1.dll's are the originalsl in both files(the good files).....the ExplorerFrame.dll I beleive are corrupt (I replaced image data in these and placed them in the folders)

the "class not registered" happened after replacing these files.

How can I access and remedy the problem?

Hi,

Did you run the SFC program in Safe Mode?

Was it successful or did it fail?

Thanks,
