Windows 7: Windows Classic. Can't open anything.

Windows Classic. Can't open anything.

Hello guys I'm new to the forums
I thought this forums might be the answer to my problem I have currently so...

A few days ago I was going through themes and I accidently clicked "windows classic" and ever since then, EVERY folder, settings or what not I click gives me a folder that says "windows explorer"...
I can't open my personalization or my computer to check for anything because it would say "windows explorer"
I can open itunes, google chrome and all that other program but just not things thats related to the system..
I tried sfc /scannow (access is denied, can't get into my computer because everything is "windows explorer")
Could someone PLEASE help me with this issue.. I can't really do anything at this state..

Welcome to the Seven Forums

Do you have the install DVD or repair disk, if so have a look at this tutorial and see if it will help SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot
