Okay, so here's the deal. Had a virus/trojan/malware, w/e on my computer, ran CWShredder, rebooted in safe mode and that's when it happened: explorer never poped up. Didn't pop up when I rebooted in normal. Tried forcing it open in task manager, through "explorer.exe", "explorer", and finding explorer through the browse function. In safe mode, when I force up explorer, it gives me the little pop up informing me that I am in fact in safe mode, but that's it. It's acting funny when I try to open stuff up in task amanger, too, like not finding files in My Documents.

I have no idea what's going on or why this happened. I don't believe it's a virus, as I had a post in the malware and believe I've taken care of the virus aspect. Is there any way to get explorer back?

Thank you.
