Recommended Posts

Alright here is the story 2 days ago my brother downloaded something our other, it was a .bat file of some sort. From the gist of it, It is reeking havoc the explorer.exe crashes over and over and over I'm so-so with computers just not on the virus side all post his hijack this log and see if any of you see suspicous files, I ran it once prior to this wrote down things i thought where out of place i got 15 confirmed ad ware,malware,etc things erased but it is still crashing over and over, Also honestly i suck at explaining things so bear with me.

Have you tried finding another copy of explorer.exe with search in your OS?If you have that see if you can copy & paste it in where your Windowsexplorer.exe is.You may have to do this in safe mode .You may not be able to do it from even safe mode.If you had DOS then it would be much easier from outside Windows.Then you could just extract or copy the extra & probably good explorer.exe to DOS then to C:Windows.

There is a linux boot disc you can do this with but you have to learn some linux.

This is the one I used to make some repairs to my OS.


Read the information at the site & if you know a linux user that could help you that would be a plus.I struggled through & managed to get what I needed to done but I don't know the correct instruction for you to use this.

Also I haven't used one but XP has a recovery console if you have a full Windows XP install disc.It might be possible to fix it from there.
