Been looking for a way to solve this on my home premium edition of Windows 7. Basically the computer loads like normal but when entering the OS the explorer does not load. I have been reading and apparently for some reason the Explorer.exe somehow is removed. Maybe thanks to Microsoft updating?????

The safe mode loads and works fine but regular programs are unable to utilize the actual computer. I am unable to print, and I am unable to watch videos via the pllayer. Anything outside of normal usage like MSWorks. Some program functions whlle others uses limited functionality.

This is a regular Eee PC machine. It says 64 bit but will not go into 64 bit mode ( I attempted to install a 64 bit version of Windows over this one ). The operating system is 32bit Win7. I have been reading and many people seem to blame the hardware adapter of the Eee PC machines. I really doubt it is the display hardware as everything seems to function in color.

I have tried tricking the computer, by switching around cmd.exe with the ease of access ( AKA shift, shift, shift ). However I discover the computer is locking out the user from accessing explorer.exe. In fact I believe THANKS TO SOME SORTA OF SECURITY USER LOCK ( like lock everyone bs ) the computer has locked out the user from loading explorer. Again you know the security bs from Vista and so forth.

Is there some way to access to the top level Administrator of Windows 7 via the cmd. Or what do I have to do unlock the user access. In my opinion I just want to do things the old fashion normal way and just load the disk into Ubuntu ( which I did in order to swtich around the cmd file ) and maybe just maybe somewhere stored on this machine is a back up of major files I could just load over the corrupted files. I am just mentioning this as this was the way I would fix things with Windows 98. Just load the hard drive into another machine that has nothing to do with Windows. In this case I am using Ubuntu.


I have been reading on the net, this is occurring with almost every single Windows 7 installation at some point in it's life. Usually people would reinstall all together, but this is computer, primarily for printing, web browsing, watching and typing things.

It is an ASUS Eee PC. Typical store model and somebody who did not listen, probably paid too much for it.
I just want to get this thing back into normal mode to do it's normal things. I am pretty sure it was a windows update that gave it a problem.

In safe mode, create a new user account. Then restart and try to log in using the new account to see if explorer loads for it.
