Note-This is my first Instructable.
Update 7/14/08: I found a new way.
Step 2: Using Taskkill
Open the start menu and type taskkill /f /im explorer.exe and hit enter. Done!
Step 3: Batch File
taskkill /f /im explorer.exe&rundll32 user32.dll,LockWorkStation&exit for a logoff afterwords.
taskkill /f /im explorer.exe&exit for no logoff afterwords
once you have chosen a name, add .bat to the end. You will have to select All File Types underneath the file name box. Then save it. Copy it onto something like a drive or CD to take it around.
Just double-click it to implement!!
Note-I got the lock program from here.
Step 4: Getting It Off
Step 5: How It Works
So, if we end explorer, we have no way of opening file and programs, except for shortcuts. Lucky for us, Task Manager, which is what we need to restart explorer, is easily accessible through Ctrl+Alt+Del. That is basically how this works.
