Hello,
i deleted my explorer.exe, and it is in the recycle bin, how do i access it, when i look at the dir C:\RECYCLER from the command prompt it says there is no files, even after changing the ATTRIB, but if i go to task manager, and type in "c:\recycler\explorer.exe" and click run, it opens up the recycler dir saying it couldn't find it and to search, and if i right click and view properties, it says 3 files and 2 folders, but i cannot see them.

i was wondering is there a command from command prompt or a line i can run in the new task on task manager to restore all files in the recycling bin? or how can i access it?


Thanks a million,
Chris


p.s.
when browsing in new task, and i go to open a folder, it asks when program i should use.
