    I found a related quote somewhere:

    "Asking windows to shutdown is not a command anymore, it is more of a request - it might, it might not!".

    ROFL.....
    The same state in which many of us here are, huh?

    everyone listen procedures........

    hey, first thank god for making me live to answer your question.
    if xp does not remember ur folders settings as you wish , do this...
    open explorer >> tools>folder options>view> and uncheck remember each folders view setting
    now everytime you choose folder view option it stays......

    that's one of the dumbest questions i have heard!!!!
    well, windows keeps a backup or copy of explorer.exe somewhere....
    so even if u deleted it, nothing would happen coz a new one would appear!!!! :twisted: :twisted:

    as u say, my lord!!
    and u can paste another explorer file after stopping the process!!
    just press ctrl+alt+del and end process.then go to tha menu, press run and type cmd! then copy the new explorer file from wherever u kept it from the command prompt!!
    then go to run again in the task manager and type explorer.exe
    and as the digit ppl say- voila! u got a new explorer!!

    hoot!!
