Wow, so you completely screwed up your Windows Shell??? What happened??? I’m sure you did something, at it’s your fault, that’s always the case. Any ways, I made a script to fix that.
Now, I wrote this back in 2009– or something like that; however, it still works to this day, as of Windows 10 Tech Preview (10041). This will NEED to be run as an administrator… of course. This will re-register the DLL’s for the Windows Shell. Some of these DLL’s don’t exist anymore, but I don’t remove them so that if I run it on an older machine it still works, and if they don’t exists it’ll just throw an error… so what! Lol.
This again is a Batch script, it predates PowerShell :-).
All you have to do is copy this, open Notepad (or what ever text
editor like Sublime), then save it as a .bat file, then just
double-click the file
