If anyone having problems. 
You must have administrator Account or your User be the Administrator. 
You have to right click the DLL, go Properties, then Security Tab, then Advanced. Take ownership of the file ExplorerFrame.dll and any other DLL file you need to change. Then rename your DLL, and put the one from this pack in your Windows/System32. 

I using this for years now. It is no danger to any Windows and he did a great job. Very thankful to you. Make Windows 7 appear more modern and less Ugly. Using Black theme is the best idea!

Hi Mare-M -- Can you please update the Explorer Frame and Shell32 To keep upto date with Microsoft security update? The explorer Buttons are not Flat anymore like the pictures you show.

Hey Mare-m,
I was just wondering if there was any easy way of making the Windows 7 taskbar transparency the same as Windows 8, like in this screenshot?

Okay so here is my experience with this awesome theme. I decided not to apply the ExplorerFrame or Shell32 files as I kinda like the 7 Nav buttons and Coloured Task Pane.
I altered the border padding, scrollbar and caption button sizes slightly. This theme looks so damn good on Windows 7 as I was getting bored of Aero.

No, because this buttons are not part of the theme. It's part of the programs you use.
