It may be your user profile is corrupt create another as administrator then delete the one that does not work...

I could do that if I'd have my interface up and running, do you know which system folder contains the System Restore program by any chance?

CTRL ALT DEL select file new task "run" type in explorer you can navigate from thwere...

forgot to mention typing in explorer.exe might solve you prob.

that's what i'm doing for the past 2 hours, but I need to open some programs from the program menu, quicklounch and the taskbarbut i just need to know where the system restore executable is located...

no, it cant open any windows and/or explorer.exe either, because explorer.exe is not running but the Run operation can open other programs but I need to bring up my windows interface back and i think system restore might solve it, but I don't know where it's located...
