Windows: Explorer fails to restart after uninstalling an Autodesk product

Personally, Windows 7 has been a great experience compared to Windows Vista, here is an interesting issue/Technical Solution TS14898448  that I would like to share with the community:

During the final stage of uninstalling an Autodesk product in Windows 7, you were presented with a warning dialog that Windows Explorer needed to be closed and would attempt to be restarted after the uninstallation is complete.

However, after the uninstall process completes, Windows Explorer does not restart and you are left without a desktop environment.

Please note that we have reported this issue to Microsoft and I didn't know that you can restart Windows Explorer [explorer.exe]!
