To tell you the truth I already spoke about something like this in a previous article of mine, where I wrote about desktop and icons which fail to load at startup. This article shifts the issue slightly, since it involves the toolbar also. Anyway, let’s see together how we can fix these issues with a couple of tricks.

First method. Delete Explorer.exe

  1. Click Start.
  2. In the Search Box, type regedit.
  3. Locale the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\ CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options
  4. In the right pane locate the subkey explorer.exe and delete it.
  5. Restart your PC to apply the change.

Second method. Restore USERINIT subkey in the registry

  1. Copy-and-paste this “code” in your Notepad: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ Winlogon] “Userinit”=”C:\\WINDOWS\\ SYSTEM32\\userinit.exe,” and save it as userinit.reg on your desktop. (make sure to give the file .reg extension).
  2. Now, double click on the file you just created.
  3. Restart your PC to apply the change.

Third method. Restore Explorer.exe

  1. Copy-and-paste this “code” in your Notepad: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\ CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
    “Shell”=”explorer.exe”
    and save it as RestoreExplorer.reg on your desktop. (make sure to give the file .reg extension).
  2. Now, double click on the file yuo just created.
  3. Restart your PC to apply the change.

Fourth method. Restore Explorer.exe in your C:\Windows

  1. Make sure Explorer.exe is not missing from your computer, by checking the folder Windows under C:\
  2. If you don’t see it anywhere, Click Start, Click Run… and type type sfc /scannow
  3. Once the scan is over, Check  C:\Windows to see if explorer.exe has been restored.
  4. If it it is not there yet, take your Windows vista DVD and put it into your CD/DVD Rom, restart your computer and at Startup press R and select Repair or Recover.
  5. In the Command Prompt type: expand D:\i386 /F:EXPLORER.EX_ C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe /y where D: is your CD/DVD Rom and C:\ is where your Vista is installed
  6. Type exit to exit Recovery Console.
  7. Reboot your computer.
