Hi there everyone,

Earlier i just looked at my hijackthis log and noticed that it dosnt have the WINDOWS Explorer.EXE file anymore.

I havent removed it and nothing has been installed apart from a couple of Printers.

Is this normal or should i have Explorer.EXE ?

thanks for your time :tazz:

PS However i do see

explorer.exe

in the windows task manager.

It malware or something ?

I'm not sure what to say about the explorer.exe file missing form you computer. However I do know that explorer.exe in your task manager is a vital windows component. If you close it, it will shut down windows, and you will have to restart your computer.

In the Task Manager is it supposed to be :

I find that a great part of the information I have was acquired by looking up something and finding something else on the way.
