Explorer.exe won't start..file association?

After installing vista 32bit sp1 my win+e key combo gives this error of

"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing
this action. Create an association in the Set Associations control
panel." and the title of the pop-up is "explorer.exe".

I've tried starting explorer from run command box , from C:\windows
folder location and task manager and all give the same error.

Nothing found in program defaults, all the PC doc softwares can't fix
it.
tried deleting the exe reg entry in:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\FileExts]

and after reboot still the same (entry returns).
Any help very much appreciated...(as I would think exeplorer.exe opens
itself so why does it need a file association?)
