I'm currently running Mozilla Firefox on a computer with no desktop icons and no taskbar. This is the only way I can reach the internet. Every so often, for reasons I can't determine, upon restart the computer will give me the following error message:
"Explorer.exe - Application Error
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click on OK to terminate the application."
I do so, and windows launces into a background with, again, no icons, no taskbar. I can run process explorer and launch mozilla, and that's how I'm online.
When the computer does not do this --- when explorer.exe initializes fine --- I can run MSN messenger, AIM, but cannot open either Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. The computer is afflicted with one adware program that I know of --- The Best Offers --- which no amount of SpyBot, McKafee, or even Norton can seem to fix.
I have to assume the problems I've got are related to this Adware --- is there any way to remove it?
