NEED HELP QUICK! - EXPLORER.EXE NOT LOADING
I have a MAJOR problem at the moment and no idea how to get around it without formatting, etc.
This laptop I'm on right now had a weird virus a couple of days ago. Cleaned it. Sorted it. No problem.
This morning, it took ages to log on. I saw my desktop wallpaper and that was all. No icons. No taskbar. Nothing.
I can run Task Manager and run programs from there but can't open any windows.
When I go to the Windows directory and try and run explorer.exe from there I'm told I don't have the right permissions to do so. I've tried replacing explorer.exe and it says the same thing. I've even tried running a copy of explorer.exe from my pen drive and get the same error. It seems like something is stopping me running any file called explorer.exe.
I tried to delete explorer.exe from the Windows directory but it appeared again all by itself. I've done virus scans and spyware scans but all turned up with nothing.
So, help! Otherwise it's going to be a rebuilding job.
