Hi,

Not services, just selective options.

What was he using to read his email? Sounds as though that particular
reader became default (present to the eye or not).

For OE: Go to Start/Run and type in: regsvr32 urlmon.dll. Then go to:
IE/Tools/Internet Options/Programs/Reset Web Settings.

Check your settings here:

Windows Explorer/Tools/Folder Options/File Types. Scroll down to
URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol/Advanced/Edit.

Under Application used to perform action it should read:
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -nohome

Set Outlook Express as default mail client - Start/Run and type in:
MSIMN.EXE /REG

Thanks Kelly,
as usual a comprehensive answer.
All worked with the restrui command except that the FAVORITES are still
gone and the desktop is also still missing from the QLaunch bar (easy to
resolve). FAVORITES SHOW UNDER ALL USER BUT NOT UNDER MY ACCOUNT.
ANSWERS TO OTHER POINTS BELOW.
