HELP!! I need the original explorer.exe for Windows 7...

#1
I accidently overwrote the explorer.exe when I was installing a new theme for Windows 7, does anyone have the original explorer.exe so I can have my original Start button orb back??


Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Try this link: Icon Cache - Rebuild - Vista Forums

It's for vista but should be ok for 7....I hope!

Post back if more help is needed...

Think he deleted the .exe, not the icon.

What build of 7, and what bit version are you running?

Another way , if you have any restore points, is to look in the Shadow Copy with the free Shadow Explorer - find explorer.exe and export a copy.

Suggest you get the 0.4 rather than the 0.5 beta.
