Windows 7: Explorer Restart Tools

Explorer Restart Tools

Thanks to D3ftOn3Z for the inspiration.

Simple script I've been writing for the past 3 hours. It gives you s few options to help with restarting Explorer.exe.

It gives the options to Restart Explorer, Start Explorer if it is not running, and can automatically (so tempted to say automagically) close Explorer, open Task Manager, and open the Browse dialog, so you can edit your Explorer files in maybe 2-3 clicks...

(Typed the text at the top wrong, but it doesn't matter too much)

Please report any bugs, especially with the Context Menu instructions. I read those off from D3ft0n3Z, so blame him! (kidding)
And the "Installer" at the beginning is an annoying, but crucial process. Can't help it, sorry.

Aaaand here's the download link. Explorer Tools.exe
I got rid of the setup screen at the beginning, in favor of a silent one that would load faster.

Nice, I've been messing around with my orbs the old fashioned way(instead of that new-fangled automated proggie floating around xD; ) and this should help a lot! Thanks!
