    If you press the windows key + R and get the run box up, type cmd for the command prompt.

    then enter each of the following lines

    cd %windir%

    start unlockProtectedFeatures.exe

    If the protected feature box starts, try turning it off

    Was the command run in the windows dir?

    i.e. c:\windows\

    Also if you can see your win7 drive from vista check that unlockProtectedFeatures.exe is still in the win7 windows directory

    this is how i ran the commands....

    >cd %windir%

    >start unlockprotectedfeatures.exe

    is this correct..?

    i cannot find ''unlockprotectedfeatures'' in the W7 windows directory..while browsing through vista ??

    & i cant get in to roll it back, can i start the ''system restore'' with a command.??

    sorry to be a droning NUB ...

    While in Vista download unlockprotectedfeatures.exe from shawns tutorial and copy it into your win7 windows directory

    when you run the commands from 7 it should look something like this

    unfortunately that didn't worked john....

    but im sending this from W7 now, i can open any programs straight from the task manager, so there must be a way to re enable the desktop....

    i tried sys restore & that wont work, seeing as i can access anything on here surly there is a way to switch the desktop back on either through an app or command...

    its perfectly configured except for the desktop.

    i think im just gonna format the 2nd HDD tonight & run a fresh installation (& steer well clear of this fancy taskbar), i have learn t quite a bit from my mistakes this time around & i don't have those crappy modem drivers holding me up, & now i can configure the router from memory

    .... its all good fun.

    cheers for all your help john, i will be back on W7 by tomorrow night so its not that bad ....a new install is no biggie to repeat

    Hello SK.

    I had trouble with a a WU update today myself', it froze and I had to do a hard shutdown to clear it. I'm having no problem with the taskbar though; everything is running fine otherwise.

    Sorry to hear you're having troubles.
