Changing Windows Shell

In older versions of Windows, you could edit the System.INI file to change
the "Shell=Explorer.exe" Can you still do that with Windows XP?

    Hi

    Yes, but you need to do it in registry.

    The shell to be used is the Shell value under the key
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\
