This is kinda off topic, but very on topic regarding ease of accessing my paper model files. I run windows XP. In recent weeks, I have encountered difficulties on startup with the windows explorer screen coming on at least once during the windows startup displaying the System32 folder. Since this was rapidly becoming a major pain in the butt, I dinked around with some of the .exe files that were being implicated in the various dialog boxes encountered along the way. To make a long story short, windows now loads without hitch, but my windows explorer screen no longer comes on at all (I try opening it, it just resets my workbench)....I think I may have hit empty rather than restore on the recycle bin I managed to do a workaround by finding and installing a copy of 2xplorer, so can once again find and manipulate my 35 gig of hard drive stuff...however, I would like to unscrew what I managed to screw up without :shudder: doing a full reinstall of the OS. Any of you computer gurus know what .exe files are associated with windows explorer so I can see if they are still there and maybe then just restore the missing file rather than frick around with a total reinstall?
