I was fooling around Installing 3rd party themes. I have an application which patches theme over the original ones

I had a nice theme, looked good then thought i would take it further by patching its system shell.

I forgot the shell was 64bit and i was using 32 bit win 7.

Now the windows explorer does not work and i cant see anything not even the background but i can get onto task manager.

How can i get onto that program and change the theme to a 32bit theme?? Or even restore the crucial parts of system 32 to default. Or how csn i do a recovery without windows explorer

Im not sure if this is the correct section, sorry if it isnt.
I in bed on my iphone now but i will stay up to mesage back, i will not be able to sort out the problem until tomorow morning (uk)

Thanks in advance. It is crucial i get doing my work on my laptop tomorow

See this tutorial by Brink: http://www.sevenforu...m-restore.html' class='bbc_url' title='External link' rel='nofollow external'>How to Do a System Restore in Windows 7

Follow Option Two:
Through System Recovery Options at Boot

Note: This will allow you to restore Windows 7 to a earlier restore point with a Windows 7 installation disc from the System Recovery Options screen at bootup. This can be handy if you cannot startup Windows 7.
