A post from Rick Rogers.......
A fix would only be made available if it were broken for many people. For
most explorer is not broken, however I have seen it broken by the addition
of spy/ad programs, incompatible shell enhancing programs, and other
software. You will need to selectively disable running programs to decipher
which one is interfering with the shell on your system.

Also if you need to uninstall something without using Control Panel, may I
suggest a program I use and is a standalone program which you do not need to
MyUninstaller is an alternative utility to the standard Add/Remove applet of
Windows operating system http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/index.html#desktop_utils
All the best,
