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
