Need default explorer.exe for windows 7 32-bit

Hey guys, this problem isnt much of a BIG problem but I want my default start orb back, I never knew it replaced a SYSTEM File and when i used Windows 7 Start Orb changer to restore my start orb it stopped working, from that day on I kept trying, trying and trying. You guessed it, didn't work :/ So then I looked it up and said it replaces explorer.exe so i looked into the windows folder and found it and found: NO BACKUPS! I tried sfc /scannow (Doesn't work) Using msdos to restore it (doesn't work) so the only thing that I thought would work is someones WINDOWS 7 32-BIT EXPLORER.EXE (nothing else) I hope you guys can help
-Thank your Refz1234

I would ask the moderator to move your post here:

Those guys have likely run into that before.
A restore point from before the change should fix it. But if you don't have one, I would ask to move your post as I suggested.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

To properly change a system file you need to take ownership give yourself permission and rename the old file and then copy in the new one look at Post #6 of this thread will tell you how to do it Basic Networking Information
