My explorer.exe crashing issue that I thought was malware, probably isn't because it's doing it again. The one thing I've seen in the system log that happens every time right before it crashes is the Flash Player Update runs. Of course, the Flash Player Update can also run and NOT crash it, but it is always the last thing that ran before it crashed. The other odd thing is that it started crashing again (after not crashing since I went through malware removal steps on here May 4) when I turned system restore back on. I guess it could be coincidence, but it's the only change I made
So now I'm thinking maybe I should try repairing Windows and I checked the tutorial here, but I do NOT have an XP CD. I have a recovery console/partition and have always reinstalled, reformatted by using that. So I guess my question is, should
I repair my installation and how do I do it without a CD or is there some other way I can fix this issue?
Thanks for all the help so far~
