    explorer.exe [not IE :) ] not associated...no run no go...

    I did not make a copy of the exact two-sentence error regarding Windows 7 Pro's explorer.exe not being associated, thus no run no go. I would like very much if youse all who have solved this before -- please post your solutions here. I will copyNpaste into a file onto my harddrive, meaning USB or DVD boot & reading and applying the solutions. I'm using nonOEM official Microsoft blue-disk Windows 7 Professional.
    Ok, I will post what worked this time [it did not work for my earlier now gone Windows 8.0]: Windows Repair (All in One) -- embedded were my choices:

    Anticipating backup/restore replies, yes, that would have been my next move, restoring a cdrive image that is about 1 week+ old. I'm not certain if system restore and/or registry restore would have worked 'cause I had none of those backups at that point.
    I have set up Tweaking.com's registry backup to daily make backups at logon. Does anyone know how to tell Task Scheduler to make a System Restore Point at logon?
