XP pro
Had some infection trouble
bought a bunch of tools
the infection is gone

When I re-boot, I can log-in but the system hangs on that screen. When I double click on "explorer.exe" in c:\windows it gives the error in the attached file!

I re-named "explorer.exe" to "explorerr.exe", double clicked it and it loaded !!

Same problem with "iexplore.exe", re-named to "iexplorer.exe" and it loads !!

What the ????

PLEASE HELP

Thanks
