Hi-

Are you an Administrator of the PC?

If not, that is most likely your problem....

Hi-

Ah. i missed that! and i was looking there!

you could try, if you really want to, to boot into a live CD (like ubuntu) and move the file. but other than that, i have no idea why its not working.

One more thing to try: Run The explorer window as an administrator

Regards-

Mark

The "access denied" message for shell32.dll and explorer.exe are probably due to the fact that they are "files in use".

These are Microsoft Windows 7 OS modules. Only Windows Updates and hotfixes can legally patch OS modules.

We cannot further assist with this matter.

Thread closed.
