If your Windows Vista doesn’t manage to start explorer.exe on boot, you may want to try a couple of steps in order to make sure that your operating system has not got any virus and that it is running fine. Here is what to do.
- First of all scan your computer with an antivirus and antispyware to be sure that it hasn’t got anything harmful.
- As a second step, boot your computer in safe mode to make sure that any software installed by you has not interfered with your operating system.
- Right after that click Start – in the Search Box, type regedit and press Enter. Locate this key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon and make sure that, in the right pane, the subkey Shell having the value Explorer.exe is available
- As a final step click Start – in the search box, type sfc /scannow and press Enter.
- When the scanning is over, right click on the result – run as Administrator and read KB928228 to understand how to use this data.
