    Getting my desktop back?

    I was trying Media Engine on my TV computer running XP pro and it installed fine and was running ok.

    Now after I restarted the PC Media Engine loads on startup before the desktop can, so if I quite Media Engine all I get is a blank screen with no desktop no start bar and no icons.

    There is probably an easy way of getting it back but I had a tinker yesterday and couldn’t find it.

    Do I have to boot in safe mod and uninstall it from there?

    Since you're on XP

    And if you want to keep it your default shell and run explorer just when you need it then

    press CTRL-ALT-DEL
    open task manager
    choose file-->run
    type explorer.exe
    choose ok
