Restore Internet Explorer in Windows 7.
Toolbars, add-ons and malware can be removed from Internet Explorer in Windows 7 – a useful feature given how easy it is for browsers to become sluggish.
To reset your browser, go to the Tools menu and open Internet Options. On the Advanced tab click the Reset… button and a small screen will ask you to clarify what you wish to reset. You can Delete personal settings as well as toolbars, add-ons and so forth.


Start Windows Explorer From My Computer In Windows 7.

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

Windows Explorer opens in the Libraries directory by default. Most of us are used to see the My Computer page instead. To change it to My Computer, press the Windows Key, then type “explorer”, select Properties and in the Shortcut tab type “%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /root,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}”. Now you have to right-click the Explorer icon in the Taskbar and hit “Unpin this program from the taskbar” and then drag it back from the Start Menu.

That is just a single space between explorer.exe /root above.
