/ BLOG / Stopping the SBS 2011 setup wizard

Assume somehow that you have a Windows SBS 2011 box that’s now running the setup wizard on boot - the only issue is that you’ve already setup the box previously.

Have no fear, the wizard simply replaces the explorer shell so the “fix” is nothing more than switching the default shell back to explorer.exe.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Shell

Don’t ask why I needed to know this.
