What am I missing here that says that you can't simply go back to a point in time before all of the experimentation/whatever began? Even if this means you have to reinstall some program that you've installed in the meantime, I would think that a System Restore would do the job without having to mess around directly with the registry.

2) followed steps mentioned in the following article

Glad to hear that you've solved the problem.

I can not recommend the failure to use System Restore points, which is not the same as system repair, sytem image restore.

System Restore, in Win 7 works perfectly, not like we had in Vista.

System Restore has saved me from having to do a 100% reinstall several times.

I recommend using System Restore VERY STRONGLY!

This solved it

JosephPatrick's linked solution was the one which solved the problem (get ride of Extended Tiles in Explorer.

I believe my problem resulted from migration from Vista to Windows 7. On my older XP system I just installed Windows 7 and that system did not have Extended Tiles. I believe it was a "lingering effect" of the registry setting for Vista.

Thank you for the easy and effective solution.
