Replacing Explorerframe.dll

Just a reminder to those of you who are new to installing Windows 7 shell themes. The explorerframe.dll 64-bit goes into the system32 Windows folder (C:/Windows/system32/explorerframe.dll) and the 32-bit file goes into the sysWoW64 folder (C:/Windows/SysWoW64/explorerframe.dll).

Replacing the explorerframe.dll or shell32.dll is very similar to replacing the explorer.exe, so make sure to read our tutorial how to replace system files in Windows 7.
