    everything works fine, however the navigation buttons are not changed. i downloaded ResourceHacker to check the ExplorerFrame.dll and i can see the files are changed into the correct images but my windows still have the old win7 nav. buttons.
    howcome? thanks in advance

    NOTE: when i run the transformationpack i left the pc and went to the kitchen to make coffee, when i came back my pc was saying something similiar to YOUR COMPUTER COULDNT START and an system repair was in action. could that cause the navigation buttons to revert back to the old ones? i dont get it coz the ExplorerFrame.dll is correct
