Windows 7: Network and sound icons missing..

Network and sound icons missing..

Hey, I've had a weird error with Windows 7. It happened after I tried to remove the watermark and edit user32 (or something like that). I do have the battery icon, but it's missing the battery info. I believe it's a explorer related error, because each time this happens and I go to right click the desktop explorer.exe stops responding.

Does anybody have any information on this, or how I could repair my system to a state before? System restore is disabled on this machine.

Yes....reinstall and then DON'T try and remove the Watermark.

This is 1 of the unpredictable errors encountered when trying to edit system files or use cracks to remove watermarks. You will have to restore the previous versions (right-click each file & choose 'Restore previous version') for all changed files.

Hopefully your shadow cache will still have the information required to restore. If not then you will have to install again.

I made a backup myself, and restored it after it didn't work. And jeez you're fast at posting. I'm probably going to reinstall anyways. Too many problems are coming up.

That would be best. And after a while you don't notice the watermark anyway (at least, most of us don't ).

I did a format and reinstalled. So far so good! Installed Avast (like you advised - always liked the before-boot scan). I'll let you guys know if theres anything wrong! Thanks guys.
