^^You have to press the button two times. Once the error comes, click Continue & press the button again.

The reason you are seeing the Extended Tiles view is because to enable the folder backgrounds the class that explorer uses is forced to use the older class that is background capable. The reason you can still see Tile in My Computer, User Documents........... is because the script has a key inserted to keep explorer using the newer class for those files. The reason for this is if you switch the class for those as well you will no longer be able to view things like the capacity bar under drives and such. The only workaround for this is to uninstall using the registry script and not use a background changer. There is no workaround to allow for Tile view and still be able to use a Background Changer

Thnx a lot for the description Lee but as Gocool pointed, i am unable to revert my settings back to normal, even by uninstalling or applying uninstall reg, the view remains the same. When i install back i get the backgrounds back but i dont get my tiles view back on un-installation..

Sorry guys. To revert it back manually Open Registry Editor and go to the following location,
Quote:
HKey_Current User\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell
and Delete the key
Quote:
Bags


Note: Though this reverts your view settings back to default, this will also clear your personalized folder options such as icon, thumbnail and view settings. Log Off or Restart Explorer to view changes

Thnx a lot Lee. I did not revert, instead i installed it back and all backgrounds are back now
@Gocool... Kindly do try this out
@Kishan: When i install your soft's new version 1.1, i didnt get back my background but after trying the old version i got all my BG's clean and clear I think the registry script didnt invoked for the new version.

Have you tried restarting, logging off and back, or restarting your computer.
Load Registry Editor and Delete the Bags key from the following location

Quote:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell
Should have allready been removed but you can check there to make sure

I have tried removing the 'Bags' and 'BagMRU' keys from both 'Classes_Root' and 'Current_User'.

The uninstall option available in the version 1.1 seems to be working on 32-bit but not on 64-bit. I have tried everything but am not able to get back the Tiles view.

I am in the process of testing this on virtual machine to see if I can reproduce this issue on 64-bit OS
