Outstanding!!!

In the left pane, expand (click +) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then SOFTWARE, then Microsoft, then Windows NT, then CurrentVersion, and click on Winlogon.

In the right pane, scroll down to Shell. If the value (under the Data column) is not Explorer.exe, double click on Shell, type Explorer.exe in the Value Data field, and click "Ok".

Close all open windows and reboot.

Let me know how this goes.

I prefer a .45 although, the mac10 is kinda fun... :whistling:

Let's see if we can run a script on this beast. I'm assuming you have a floppy drive on the machine? I'm also assuming you are not on the broken machine.... :blink:

Download the attached file and extract it to a floppy disk. Navigate to it (using Windows Explorer if necesary) and double click on the file. Accept the prompt to run it. If it won't run that way, right click on it and choose "Merge".

Attached Files

Back to the registry editor.... :whistling:

Task Manager > File > New Task

Type cmd and click "Ok"

At the prompt, type regedt32.exe, and press "Enter".

Expand HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT...scroll down to .exe

Value for (Default) = exefile

Value for Content Type = application/x-msdownload
