    1. Install the <InstallTakeOwnership.reg> from the Take Ownership
    2. Take Ownership from the <shell32.dll.mui> file (located @ C:\Windows\System32\en-US)
    3. Take Ownership from the <basebrd.dll.mui> file (located @ C:\Windows\Branding\Basebrd\en-US)
    4. Close the Windows Explorer completely in order to let the <InstallTakeOwnership> work
    5. Copy and replace the <shell32.dll.mui> from the Edited Files to C:\Windows\System32\en-US
    6. Copy and replace the <basebrd.dll.mui> from the Edited Files to C:\Windows\Branding\Basebrd\en-US
    7. Start the Command prompt with Administrator(right click)
    8. Type mcbuilder and wait till its finished
    9. Reboot !!
    10. Enjoy !!!!
