    I have recently installed a Windows Vista Transformation pack on my computer. It was working fine but it had difficulty working from other users apart from mine, so I decided to uninstall it. After uninstalling it I had logged on i got a message saying that my windows explorer wasn't working and if I wanted to send an error report or not. After I had clicked "Don't Send", I noticed that all my desktop icons and my start toolbar weren't there. The only way I could access my files were through Task Manager. If anyone can help me solve this problem please do...I need it urgently. Thank You

    Do a Ctrl, Alt, delete...Click on Task List, Click on New task, then type "cmd" (without the quotes), then in the new window (you should have C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe: prompt) type "control" (without quotes), then go to System
    Good luck!
