    Angry I lost my desktop

    I got my Lilliput installed, all was well. I changed some font and other settings and rebooted, now I cant see any icons or the start menu.
    It boots into Mediaengine and it says it must be 96dpi to view properly. went into display (from a floppy, since I can't get into any icons or start menu)
    I changed it back to 96dpi, and I've tried a bunch of different settings, but I cannot see any icons or start menu. When I push the "win" keyboard button the start menu does not come up either. When I right click the mouse, nothing comes up. I can't get into anything unless I push "cntr,alt,del" and go into the task manager. (very limited)
    Please help...

    Did you make MediaEngine your shell ?
    If so, you'll have to launch explorer manually.

    I told MediaEngine to boot up , yes
    Even if I go back into MedEng. setup and tell it not to load on start, it still does.
    How do I launch explorer manually?
    Nothing happens when I push the "win" key
