    for a little while now i have been having this problem

    when i press windows key + e it should launch explorer (it use to)

    now it launches "windows Installer", pressing 'esc' sends the window away and gives me explorer. I had a troll though the registry, and searched google with no luck. Any suggestions welcome,

    Fixed it myself, used the event view to find the product number then disabled the associated key in registry.
