    As there seems to be a lot of unwanted things going on these days which can't be dealt with when explorer is running - I thought I'd pass this method along as an alternative to rebooting in safe mode etc.

    You can use this to do dirty deeds such as deltree'ing Recycled etc.

    Get Explorer out of the way

    Under 9x - it's been interesting.
    I've done it while online (wasn't using IE).
    I've run Process Explorer
    I've run MRUBlaster
    The list goes on :)
    Most things will run if you start them from a command or cmd prompt.
