Explorer.exe- Bad Image... Black screen with cursor? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Now it all started when I was trying to use a new theme for my computer and tried to set settings to make my desktop prettier and all that.
    One of the instructions told me to switch the browseui.dll with the one she provided. So i switched it around and restarted my computer.
    I got to the log in page fine but after i try logging in, a message pops up saying

    "c:\Windows\system32\BROWSEUI.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try Installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system admistrator or the software vendor for support."

    the screen at the back is completely black and when i press "ok", my screen still remains black with only my cursor and i cant open anything other then task manager =o= even though i can open task manager, i cant function anything on it because the same message pops up and nothing works. Am I doomed and need to take the computer to fixing or can I fix this myself?

    Experts, please do help me :( I'm a total noob when it comes to computers
