If you press the windows key + R and get the run box up, type cmd for the command prompt.

then enter each of the following lines

cd %windir%

start unlockProtectedFeatures.exe

If the protected feature box starts, try turning it off

i can get the cmd promt up but it states it cant find ''unlockprotectedfeatures.exe''
is there any other commands that might clear the mistake..??

Was the command run in the windows dir?

i.e. c:\windows\

Also if you can see your win7 drive from vista check that unlockProtectedFeatures.exe is still in the win7 windows directory

this is how i ran the commands....

>cd %windir%

>start unlockprotectedfeatures.exe

is this correct..?

i cannot find ''unlockprotectedfeatures'' in the W7 windows directory..while browsing through vista ??

& i cant get in to roll it back, can i start the ''system restore'' with a command.??

While in Vista download unlockprotectedfeatures.exe from shawns tutorial and copy it into your win7 windows directory

when you run the commands from 7 it should look something like this

unfortunately that didn't worked john....

but im sending this from W7 now, i can open any programs straight from the task manager, so there must be a way to re enable the desktop....

i tried sys restore & that wont work, seeing as i can access anything on here surly there is a way to switch the desktop back on either through an app or command...

its perfectly configured except for the desktop.

Hello SK.

I had trouble with a a WU update today myself', it froze and I had to do a hard shutdown to clear it. I'm having no problem with the taskbar though; everything is running fine otherwise.

Sorry to hear you're having troubles.
