MS Sharepoint - error 1079 - web client problem

Both my boss and I have Windows 7 Home Premium and use IE10 for internet access to Sharepoint. We share files constantly through Sharepoint.

Both of us can't use the "Open with Explorer" function (which is essential for us) and I have figured out that my Web Client service will not "start" - error 1079 "account specified for this service is different than the account specified for other services running in the same process".

Tried to download MS "Fixit 50671" to correct this problem (found solution on internet somewhere) but it seems that is not available for download right now.

Any ideas how to fix??? Thanks.

Hi,
you could easily try to fix it yourself - it is just after the fix-it download button:

Let me fix it myself

Set the service and any dependent services to run under the NT AUTHORITY\LocalService account.

1. Click Start, type "Services.msc” in the Search programs and files box, and then press ENTER,
2. Locate and double click the Web Client service.
3. Click the Log On tab,
4. In the This account text box, type “NT AUTHORITY\LocalService”,
5. Set both Password fields blank,
6. Click Apply and then OK,
7. Restart the services.
