    If you can access the registry then check the value of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Shell

    It may have been changed to make it boot straight to arcade. Make a backup of the registry key (Or the whole registry if you're going to be doing anything else) and then change it to explorer.exe

    This should hopefully make it so you can access explorer again

      When I shelled one of my machines I did it a totally different way. I'm not sure why people are disabling explorer. Seems unnecessary.

        Hyperspin won't start registry issues??

        Thanks for all the replies guys I appreciate the help.
        I've made a bit of progress.
        If I booted the machine and left it for say 20 minutes hyperspin would slowly load but was unuseable.
        Brad explorer.exe is running.
        What I've found is I opened msconfig then services then disabled all services and rebooted the machine.
        Hyperspin loaded no trouble at all but I had no sound.
        I then methodically enabled all services until I found which one was the culprit. It turned out to be a service called Power.
        With power disabled the machine boots up into hyperspin but still has no audio and the speaker in the task bar has a cross on it. Also games don't load.
        If I enable power again the machine gets stuck loading hyperspin but when I exit to desktop the sound works.
        If I exit to desktop I still can't open control panel or windows explorer and still get the same message. This file does not have a program associated with it.
        When the machine starts up it starts windows then hyperspin does that mean it is not shelled?
        Sorry about having to use photos but screenshots are hard without explorer working and without control panel I can't connect to wifi.

                Ok guys going nowhere with this issue, I'm thinking it must be a windows 7 system fault.
                Looking at buying a new hard drive and starting from scratch.
                Recommendations for hard drives size brand etc.
                I noticed online 2TB sea gate fire cuda are recommended??
                Also should I upgrade to windows 10??
                Thanks

                  I have an ssd 60gb and a 2tb HDD.

                  Programs on the ssd, a few hyerspin menu themes and vids and most of the resources on the HDD.

                  If you go into emulation of cd/dvd go bigger.

                  Starting from starch is the way to go. Once you get your head around it, totally worth it.

                  I also have windows 10 and have no issues.
