Hello everyone :blink:.

Well, regarding to the topic title it should be very clear what my problem is. My Explorer.exe keeps on crashing, if i try to access it from the desktop, with the "my computer" symbol or by using the "run" command and typing any of the drives like c:, d: etc....

I readed alot of posts here and elsewhere, tried several Antispyware programs (and found alot of spyware, malware, trojans etc.) like Trend Micro Anti-Spyware, Spybot, Antivir, Hijackthis etc... but iam afraid that by using so many different software for a single problem will only make it worse.

Well, i would apreciate every help i can get, but one other thing i have to mention is, that my os is in chinese, iam living in China, working here. So, when it comes to registry editing and recover old back ups of the OS, well then iam not able to do that.

On the other hand, i used several software, with which i can browse threw all the folders etc. No problem. It seems like explorer.exe is having a serious problem, which also might be caused by a adware (malware etc) which i removed (of coz you can ask me for the name, but i dont remember) lately, becoz internet explorer was popping up every 10 min with nacked woman on my screen. Can be pretty embarassing in a office, when you come back from a break or a smoke, and lot of ppl staring at your screen :whistling:.

Anyway, should stop talking, well, thx everyone, if you think, reinstalling the OS would be an easier Option, then just tell me and i go for it, but i would like to know, what caused the problem :help:.

Thx everyone,

Welcome to Geeks to Go Helmi, please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
