    Is it the 7.0 version of windowblinds you are using ?

    To replace explorer.exe, in %systemroot%, just rightclick it and choose "take ownership", or if you should lack that option in shell menu, rightclick properties, security, advanced, owner, and change the owner to administrators, and give them full control.

    Now rename explorer.exe to explorer.exe.bak

    Copy/paste the new explorer.exe to that location

    I'm still at work now, don't have access to my home computer, so can't send the file yet.

    This may aswell be of interest to you :

    Think nothing of it, bro.

    The hashes don't match because the iso contains a loader.
    So it isn't exactly untouched. As long as nothing else is added, it shouldn't be a problem though.
