On your post #181 you say you were able to get explorer.exe to work. I've been pulling my hair out trying to build my 7pe with explorer to work, no luck. I'm somewhat computer savvy and I'm willing to follow a complicated procedure if you have one. I can edit registry, mount images and can almost make a good ISO. I'm not looking for anything fancy, just a desktop in my 7pe. Could you do me the grand favor and explain the steps to do that? I've tried talking to someone on Reboot.pro and I still can't get this "seemingly" simple thing to work. I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks, GreatG.
