The system file checker must be typed in exactly as it appears here including the spaces and spelling: sfc /scannow

Go here click here and scroll down to line 195 right hand column and download the file. Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt.

Make a system restore point before running this VB script just in case anything goes wrong.

Do the 3-fingered MS salute, on the applications tab, choose new process and type in "explorer.exe"
