Thank you. I will checkout the links and will get back. One thing, I answered “Sandbox” to the pop-up but when I checked the Always Sandbox it was not there. There was no option to place it in the Sandbox again so I placed it in Blocked files. Does removing it from the Blocked Files throws the pop-up again.
I’m looking-in here for a different reason: I get shell32.dll pop-ups sometimes when coming-out of Hibernate. Don’t use any special theme pack but I do have Aero and 2560x1600 backgrounds custom-selected.
I’m gonna surf on this “adapt the shell32.dll” idea but if anyone has pertinent details by all means share…
Back on XP days, it was related to “theme patcher” thing…
Dunno how it’s done on 7…
The thing is, some program you installed might have modified the original microsoft file…
Did you do the sfc scannow thing?
There are a number of utilities floating around to patch Windows 7 for adding customised themes, I’ve always used Universal Theme Patcher but any of them will do the job.
Typically, these utilities patch several files:
Once patched, the system is ready to apply custom themes, many of which can be found on places like Deviantart, or customize.org. A lot of themes are fairly simple and similar to their XP counterparts, some, however, also add replacements for certain system files, such as:
There are various methods used to replace these files, such as manually taking ownership and replacing the file, or simply using a utility, such as:
Thanks for the feedback, guys. I’ve not patched anything and the first other thread from Radaghast pointed me towards a mouse1 utility to check my shell32.dll signature, and both the one in system32 and the one in sysWOW64 check-out as Signed/verified.
Thanks again–sorry for the distraction malick1976!
I had difficulty with the reimage application yesterday as it was not a standalone installer and it seems to download like forever. Other application like TrueCrypt and the new Firefox build was not so. I am in the office now and I’ll try again when I get home.
Since this is on XP SP3 due to the BricoPack theme, is it safe to allow it or I’ll let it remain in the CIS sandbox? For how long…? Or is there a rule that I should create for this BricoPack theme so I won’t need to let it stay sandboxed…?
I have read some at the link that there was a rule created there…what maybe a safe rule to do…?
