Open regedit

Browse to key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
And browse to key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
What is the value of "shell" in both keys?

So you can run many applications... except explorer.exe? No error message at all?

Don't replace files files .. it can ruine everything!!

Open elevated command prompt Elevated Command Prompt

Now type:
