Take ownership of explorer.exe and give yourself full permissions to it. (Right click on it > Properties > Security Tab > Advanced > Owner Tab > Edit > Click on Administrators > OK > OK > OK > OK > YES then Right Click on the file again, Properties > Security Tab, click on EDIT > click on Administrators, Full Control: Allow > OK > OK)
Rename explorer.exe by explorerBackup.exe (in order to have a backup of the original if you enconter problems
Then open the explorer.exe with any resource hacking software.
I prefer restorator 2007. Use it to replace the 3 same named resources in the BMP folder inside EXPLORER.EXE.
