    First I must tell you that I dont speek english very well.

    I have some proplems with WindowsXP. I had some Visa Pack 3 Theme for WinXP which didn't work properly. I uninstall that pack, and now I have this kind of proplem:

    Now when I try to start Windows, comes first message error which says that Explore.exe not work. Then Windows don't load desktop or start menu. All I have on the screen is my current wallpaper. I cant even right click on the desktop.
    The only way I can access any programs would be through CTRL+ALT+DEL --> RUN.
    I tried to start explorer.exe through CTRL+ALT+DEL --> RUN but the same error message comes immediately.

    Can somebody help me?

    Hit F8 while rebooting and select last good configuration

    and/or

    Try a restore from the command line

    run>C:\WINDOWS\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
