My post on page 2 is updated and the registry fix should work fine on Windows 7/8/8.1 64 bit

Using Windows 10 ?  Try the latest version first http://exkode.com/dxtory-downloads-en.html

Thanks, I have downloaded the new reg file and made a system restore point before running the .reg file, however, when I do attempt to run the .reg file i get faced with the following error:

"Cannot import C:\Users\{username}\Desktop\Windows_x64_Taskbar_fix.reg: Not all data was successfully written to the registry. Some keys are open by the system or other processes."

I have no idea what could be open preventing this change, I tried this in safe mode too with same result.
I have also tried "sfc /scannow" in safe mode too, it reports everything is okay.
I have also done a full system scan with my antivirus in safe mode too, it too reports everything is okay.
on a further note, when running the .reg file, I made sure that my antivirus's shields were all disabled and malwarebytes anti malware and malwarebytes anti-exploit were disabled as well.

Edit: I fixed it.

I got to a point that this error was making me pull my hair out (not much left, trust me LOL)
I tried Process Explorer to find what process was using ExplorerFrame.dll, result hit 3 processes, I end tasked them in task manager and then tried to Merge the .reg file obtained in page 2.
Result was the same, it failed because of keys open by the system or processes. I've ruled out the processes as I end tasked all processes, it was a system issue there.
I began to look at what version my ExporerFrame.dll was and I was shocked to see the result.

6.1.7600.16385 {no Service Pack}
6.1.7601.17514 {After installing SP1}
All of this time I was thinking my system was up to date, boy was I wrong :(

Of course after witnessing the version change after SP1 install, I tried to run Dxtory and it now runs with no errors.
Thank you for your efforts to help me, appreciated.

I hope my findings here will help someone else in the future as well.
If need be I can post the Process Explorer link.

It is because the module which performs UI customization is installed.

Hello everybody, I have the same error, I don't understand what you say, ExKoder, could you explain it please ?

Thanks a lot,
GeckoNoir.

What do I do?
