We featured this work on my Blog officialandreascy.blogspot.com… and on Instructables www.instructables.com/id/How-t…

Here is an animated ExplorerFrame for Windows 7 (32bit and 64 bit) i made ..It works perfectly with Windows 7 SP1 too just replace those files:

For 32 and 64 bit bit users :

1. Take ownership of the old file, rename it to explorerframe.dll.bak and replace it with the new file
2. Replace the old file in system32 folder of the windows directory


Previewing the Animations - Two options are available : 

1. Run Task Manager, Stop the Windows Explorer process, make a new task, write "Explorer" and hit "Enter" OR
2. Go to the Start Menu, Run Command and write "TSKILL EXPLORER" without the "" and hit Enter. It will restart windows explorer.

Animations can be seen on:

- Windows Explorer Icons (any preview type selected it has a different animation style)
- Shell Texts
- Start Menu Search Box (found items fall from the top of the start menu everytime you are making a search)

Preview : www.youtube.com/watch?feature=…

Thanks also to Vishal Gupta for featuring my stuff on ASKVG : www.askvg.com/enable-hidden-se…

VS used for the preview: Midnight Glass Nature: virtualcustoms.net/showthread.…

Enjoy!! :)

Tried this. It looks quite funky and cool. That is until I scrolled through a folder full of files. It glitches to death and looks rather dreadful when scrolling as the animation restarts over and over. It would be a lot better if it simply didn't activate when a user scrolls. Shame, I'd have kept it otherwise.

Hi there. I have a 64-bit edition. I've replaced the original file with yours, but the new animations are not showing. Is there a step that I was missing? By the way, I only replaced the one in SysWOW64 and not the one in System32, do I have to replace the file in System32 too?

EDIT: Okay I had replaced the one in System32 as well, but Explorer couldn't start. Fortunately I was able to restore the original file by using CMD.

How do you make the tweak faster? Thanks!

I have to edit the code but it's not worth it, this is why i provide this "medium speed" mod. The too slow or too fast speed is not so user friendly. It's only for a show off.

Thanks for using my stuff! :)

Am I allowed to edit it myself (provided you tell me which settings to alter), and as long as I don't share it? My only vice with this is the speed.
