    You have some wrong information. Most programs can be opened without open explorer (eg Y! M). If you delete it you can replace: looking for one on the internet, you get from a friend, I think it is also found on the DVD to install OS's but I doubt it, fix Windows (DVD OS). You do not have any reinstallation. : P

    I know, I was pretty risky for homework problem :)).
    But after build 7600, Windows 7 the changed file with visual sources and that's the trouble with so many themes, for it not working unless you change and other images directly pngurile dll.
    I hope to be able to create an installer that automatically get the TrustedInstaller permissions and can change themes, WindowBlinds not only through 60 Ron ... no big deal yes' when you take debts ... you money and that, more convenient as a theme hack pack already ... right? :))
    Would occur even for a crack That program, or enhanced ... * devilish eyes *

  4. Thanks for the explanation. That's the big problem with explorer.exe in fear. Many times it happens to break. I do not recommend anyone to tune their system by modifying explorer.exe. Up to reinstall the system is but a step. That if he knew how to rewrite permission explorer.exe and did not back up the original. :)

    Hmm ... no one can recover a system after deleting explorer.exe.
    Ctrl-Alt-Del for Task Manager starts, then new task, find iexplore.exe (Internet Explorer), Google "original explorer.exe for Windows XP / Vista / 7", find it, download it somewhere.
    Then go through all the task manager run command in the folder where you downloaded the software, copy, go to C: \ Windows (available for x32 and x64) and copy explorer there.
    This is done in case of other types of executable type error "Class not registered" or the likes xff000-sites.
    I've been curious once I install a theme for Windows 7 including a modified explorer.exe. I took the cmd file permissions, I was able to copy the new explorer.exe (making backup Others do old). I closed the process and when to restart bang, "Class not registered".
    I tried with regsvr ExplorerFrame.dll give nothing, for that frame did not have the necessary resources for what was there.
    So I woke up with a black desktop logon ... what to do? Task Manageru saved me, only they can walk in PC which uses explorer.exe for window management ...
    However, it is worth turmoil unless you have a Linux Live CD or installation on your PC, you could boot for easy and do your job.
    I am, yes I was too lazy to get back to rebooting and mess with chameleon bootloader and gksudo nautilus and ....
    I hope not catch it mess anyway ;)).
