Topic: Explorer taskbar popping up when litestep shell in use

I've been using litestep for quite sometime now and I've never had this happened and frankly I'm a bit confused and baffled. I have litestep as my shell and twice now, when I right click and try and bring up File Manager, suddenly the windows explorer taskbar appears at the bottom of my screen. I left click on the screen anywhere and it goes away. But right click and it pops back up.

Never once did I set Explore as shell when this happened. Nor was I trying to run the Explorer shell at the same time as I had the litestep shell running. I have to restart my computer just to make this weirdness stop.

I have the 2009-04-04 experimental build on Windows XP Pro. I not sure if it's a bug or not.

Any help would be appreciated.


Re: Explorer taskbar popping up when litestep shell in use

Try opening regedit and go to:

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

and change "Shell" for the full path of LiteStep using quotes like this:

Shell "DriveLetter:\Folder\LiteStep.exe"

If the problem persists, try disabling "AutoRestartShell" to "0".
