Windows 7: Reinstalling explorer.exe

Reinstalling explorer.exe

Hi!

I was playing with Litestep the other day and for some weird reason, it has deleted my explorer.exe in the Windows folder... I don't know why lol but I found some other file with the same size and icon, etc. But it doesn't start anything at all, no processes.

So I've been using the Task Manager to start my apps for two weeks now and I'd like to find a way to put a right explorer.exe back where it should be.... Is there a quick way to do so?

I don't want/need to format because my whole system is doing fine and is virus/spyware free. The only thing is the explorer.exe is missing..

Thanks!

You can try System Restore

If that doesn't work you could try a Repair Install.

Device Drivers - Be sure to have these handy to reinstall. They do not always remain after the repair (upgrade) install.
I have very custom drivers... I can't do that damn it...
