    Hi



    I am using 64 bit Vista



    While booting up Vista is loading 32 bit version of Explorer.exe



    I checked the registry for shell which is

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon



    shell = "explorer.exe"



    what else i should do to make 64 bit version of explorer.exe to load as default shell



    Any ideas?

    You're already running the 64-bit version by default.



    The 32-bit version is C:\windows\SysWOW64\explorer.exe
