New Shell32.dll and Top Gameux by Steel89 New Shell32.dll and Top Gameux by Steel89
This is the last updated Shell32.dll for Windows Vista SP1 (File Version: 6.0.6001.18062).
This file moves the Details Pane and other minor things to the Top, Replace the side image for the Control Panel and Personalization and change the gradient of the Paste/Delete window.

In addition, on this package you will find the Gameux.dll, that moves the details pane of Windows Games to the Top.

Important Requisites
- Up to date Windows Vista SP1 x86

Before Install
Please, before install, make sure you ahave the Windows Vista DVD to restore missing files if you encour in problems.
Please backup your shell32.dll and gamux.dll files and be sure you have a up to date Windows Vista SP1 x86 (with updates from Windows Update).
In addition, compare the versions of your files and the package ones, through Properties>Details>File Version.

Installation can be a difficult thing, from the point of view that many programs can use the shell32.dll.
Personally I managed to replace these files by restarting the computer in safe mode, backup up and rename the shell32.dll and the gameux.dll files and adding the archieve's ones.
After that, I restarted the pc again in normal mode.

The modify or the redistribution of the included package, in part or whole, is Prohibited.
You can post a direct link to this page where you want, but you can't host the file because is property of the author.

I'm sorry, but some people had this problem also with the Service Pack 1, but we didn't find a workaround :(
