Vista runs perfectly except for one little issue...the shell won't start without manually typing in "explorer.exe" interestingly enough, internet explorer starts as oppose to explorer.exe, anyone know if there's some corruption in some path of a registry or something? I would think it easy to solve, but I can't seem to figure my way around this thing.
