Replacing .dll in Windows 7

Post by xxrazor » Fri Jan 08, 2010 2:03 pm

I apologies if this is the wrong spot to post my quire as i am new to this forum.

For time now i have been able to replace .dll files within Windows 7 by renaming the old files, then replace with new .dll, then restarting explorer or rebooting.

Now every time i do this i get a explorer.exe error, this error his only been happening for the last few weeks

The only way around this is by replacing the files in safe mode.

Now i think that there has been a windows update that may have affect this process.

I guess my question is, i need to know if anyone else has had the same problem, if so, is there another work around, other than safe mode.

I can confirm that there are three other people i have spoken to that have the same issue.

Hi, I assume that this is due to Windows self-protection...
