desktop problem
for some reason since I installed Vista on my laptop, everytime I have
successfully logged into the system I have to use the Task manager and use
the New task function to start "explorer.exe" otherwise the screen in blank
with nothing on it. It seems that windows isn't automatically starting the
explorer task as it should. Are there any steps I can follow to rectify this
situation?

Open Notepad and copy / paste the 3 lines of text between the 2 dashed
lines. (Don't copy the dashed lines and make sure it is copied exactly as
shown, with no line wrap)

Select File / Save and save the file to the Desktop. Name the file
Shell.reg

Close Notepad, go to the Desktop and double click the file. OK all of the
prompts to merge the file into the registry. Reboot the computer.

---------------------------------

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"Shell"="explorer.exe"
