My mouse threw a wobbly this morning and opened 32 explorer window. since then I have lost the top toolbars, File edit view etc how do I get them back, by the way its windows explorer not internet explorer
Something had damaged the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar key.
There are 3 sub keys: Explorer, ShellBrowser, WebBrowser'
In each of these sub-keys is an entry for ITBarLayout if this is moved or changed it kills the menu. The fix you just ran repairs it, you could have run a manual fix by delting the ITBarLayout key but the .exe is a lot simpler.
