Just because explorer.exe is not running does not mean that nothing else is going to run. I have RoadRunner set as my shell and my Bluetooth module, USB GPS, and Buffalo wNIC adapters all load with no problems. I also run iGuidance within RoadRunner along with SkinBedder and iGMon. I can also use Firefox to access the internet when I am connected wirelessly. I can also manually start Explorer.exe by launching it from within RoadRunner. So again, explorer does not need to be running to do what you've described.Quote:
