    Ok so. Just before i say anything i use Vista Home Premium. Here i am trying to put on this skin called Albook and one of the steps is to change browseui.dll into browseui.bak and i think i accedentally changed browser.dll into browser.bak. And now my welcome screen is all black when i turn on my laptop. Also in the start menu when i hover my mouse over the right side items ("Username", documents, pictures, etc.) the pictures on the top just show files that are pretty blurry. Also, when i try to do things like windows update,the page opens but it just says,"The page has failed to load". To make matters worse, control panel window is completely blank. I don't know what i'm explaining is called but, you know when you download something and the screen turns dark except this one window which pops up it has an orange heading and it confirms your action to whatever... I can't to that either.

    I can't system restore at all.

    I'm pretty worried about this issue. So please help me if you can. Any advice would be greatly appreaciated.

    Oh, one more thing. In the System32 folder. If you have multiples of the same .dll does that mean you have viruses?
