    something strange is going on. I updated from windows updates. when system reboots it is pitch black....ctrl alt delete works to bring up taskmanager. i can run explorer and it opens up computer info. but for some reason the whole screen is black with cursor showing....Only thing i ever did was customize the start orb. i did it in registry by making it use a explorer 2 file i created. Could the custom orb be the issue?problem is i cant exactly remeber what file i moved from explorer.exe to use explorer2.exe...Anyone have any insight? i really dont wanna have to do a reinstall to update. i rolled back via system restore. before the updates its fine....what could be doing this. on x64 bit ultimate...

    my thoughts were right found where i changed explorer.exe to use custom start orbs. reverted back to the stock one. updates ran fine. tomorrow ill try to reinstall my custom to see how that goes....
