I know it's possible but I can't remember how.

I want to move/replace a file on reboot, since it is in use normally. It concerns shell32.dll which I replaced for some visual style. It used to be a hardlink but I lost it's target and I can't replace shell32.dll because it is in use.

In what way would I restore/replace this file? Replacing it on a reboot would work if I knew how.

There is a utility for this on Microsoft's great SysInternals site.

+1 because I already had this and didn't know about it, thanks! – horsedrowner Jul 29 '10 at 7:54

I always use MoveOnBoot, a freeware utility that's easy to use and will do exactly what you want.
