    Have a program that uses systemhook to alt+ctrl+del that brings up a task manager. Search for alternative task managers.. they should work.

    Well i got my system back to using explorer for the shell.

    I still had network access to the drive, so i copied explorer.exe to the centrafuse folder and renamed the files then rebooted. It worked like a charm.

    also did a little research and i can't find anyway of enabling CTRL+ALT+DEL with minlogon.

    What errors were you getting when you changed the shell??

    *EDIT*: Also, what registry key did you change for the shell. I seem to remember that minlogon handled things differently maybe... Not sure about that one, I'll have to reread the MSDN docs.

    I am interested as well. Maybe they can be corrected easily.

    I just changed the 'Shell' entry under [HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS NT\WINLOGON]
    from 'Explorer.exe' to 'C:\Program Files\...\centrafuse.exe'

    Yeah, i didn't write down the errors, which was stupid. I will change the shell again and take down the errors and pass them to the creator of centrafuse.

    One thing that's a bit unclear for me.. Is this method using XP emb. or an ordinary XP? (Nlited).. If it's NOT XP emb., where can we download minLogon?

    EDIT: Nevermind.. I found it.. Thanks SWC!

    You'll get an error, everything but one subkey will have been deleted. Then highlight all the reg values in Winlogon and delete them.
    What reg files do you delete? i dont see any

    If you don't see any reg values or keys under winlogon then you're fine. Now run the reg import file.

    Hello!

    ATM I'm burning an Nlited XP with minLogon and EWF.. I'll tell you guys how it goes, and if it's good, I'll write up a short guide..

    Has anybody tried Talisman windows skinning software, that has an automated shell switcher...

    Looks quite neat too.
