  • Getting explerer.exe to run in background????

    I have edited my windows registry so that RR is now my default GUI upon booting up windows XP(Here are the detailed instructions on how to do this...http://www.mp3car.com/winnt-based/14...ng-xp-gui.html). Now I have to start explorer.exe from the task manager whenever I need to minimize to use the default windows GUI or access the start menu. My question is...Is there a way to have explorer.exe load by default in the background so I don't need to use the task manager to run it? If not then I will have to revert back explorer.exe being the default GUI and RR being a startup item like I originally had it, but I prefer my new setup better.....thanks in advance

    If I can get this done....my next move is to disable my login screen too, since I'm going for the OEM look and feel. I have already edited my boot screen to display my ford logo instead of the standard windows logo using tuneup utilities!!!

    for automatic logon:
    -disable the new logon screen in useraccount settings
    -then windows-key+R
    -type control userpasswords2 -> Enter
    -uncheck the box and OK
    -type username and password(if needed)

    to set a bmp as background for logonscreen set registry:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop]
    "Wallpaper"="C:\\Programme\\RideRunner\\Skins\\OpenBM_E39\\AUDIO\\loader.bmp"
    to disable the small window during the logon. add this to registry:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system]
    "DisableStatusMessages"=dword:00000001
    change logon-background color to black (R G B):
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors]
    "Background"="0 0 0"

    to switch between bootsequences in RideRunner, i use these cmd-batchfiles by button and QUIT("RUNQ;$SKINPATH$Scripte\XXXXX.cmd||QUIT"):
    -for normal windows boot
    Code:
    reg add "hklm\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /v Shell /t reg_sz /d explorer.exe /f
    xcopy "C:\bootXP.ini" "c:\boot.ini" /Y /R /H
    ping -n 5 localhost> nul
    shutdown /r /t 00
    -for RideRunner boot
    Code:
    reg add "hklm\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /v Shell /t reg_sz /d C:\Programme\RideRunner\RideRunner.exe /f
    xcopy "C:\bootRR.ini" "c:\boot.ini" /Y /R /H
    ping -n 5 localhost> nul
    shutdown /r /t 00
    ping for simple delay, that RR has enough time to Exit.
    i use xcopy, because i have two different boot.ini files.

    watch my video for my bootsequence:

    BE CAREFUL BY EDITING REGISTRY OR BOOT.INI
