Hi jfar.

Thanks. It does appear when I search. Much appreciated.

Is there anyway it can be added to Start-All Programs-Accessories again.

Thanks.

As Antman pointed out above, the easiest way to use it is just right click the ORB in the
bottom left hand corner of the screen.

Hi,

Just a follow-up.

I went into the Windows Directory and located explorer.exe and copied it then pasted the file (folder) in the C:\Users\All Users\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories and now it appears.

Thanks again to All for the replies.
