Guys, I haave searched your FAQs and read the articles also found at MS knowledgebase etc, but I am still having the problem as indicated in the subject field.
I have extracted the cab files from the oem folder c:\windows\options\cabs etc;
I have completed setup /nd to reinstall windows
I have done a scanreg /restore and restored the oldest registry (one I thought I had before the problems occurred - I am limited to 5 at present as I hadn't change the max to keep to anything greater.
I have even (desperation) copied explorer.exe from another machine (obviously to no avail)
