ElBeasto,

Did you make sure that you did both steps 6 & 7 in METHOD ONE, or 9 & 10 in METHOD TWO? It is critical to restart explorer first.

Restart explorer before rebooting?

I rebooted without starting explorer.exe first since rebooting would restart explorer anyway.

Yo did it the correct way ?

1. Use the Script
2. Press CTRL + ALT + DEL
3. End process "explorer.exe"
4. Do NOT reboot between those steps!!!
5. Switch to tab "applicactions"
4. Create a new Task "explorer"

For me this worked of a hundred of times with every version

That would be why it didn't work for you.

You must do "End Process" and restart explorer.exe as in the tutorial first before restarting for it to work.
