Can't restore Windows Explorer!!

Posted: 07-11-2008, 02:56 AM
Bought a new laptop that had a disk crash. They replaced the
hard-drive and shadow copied info from old to new hard-drive.

Unfortunately, the Windows Explorer file was corrupted and the
explorer would not startup -- so I copied a new Vista's Windows
Explorer from another laptop and planned to copy it over.

File write-over denied. So I went to Task Manager, killed the
explorer -- and had Command Prompt setup -- since desktop
functions became disabled. Command Prompt was opened
"As Administrator" and I found my self in the c:\windows\system32
directory -- where I had file permissions to copy-over.

But, when I tried to copy the new file into the c:\windows directory,
I got a permission denied and could do nothing in that directory.

PLEASE tell me the secret to replace Windows Explorer....
I am in big trouble.

Thanks,
Dave
