Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Every5 seconds or so, Desktop icons disappear with the taskbar and thenreappear. I validated through Task Manager, explorer.exe in Processesdisappears and reappears.
I can open other windows and things function otherwise normally as long as I do so when explorer is active.
I've had one suggestion to change the priority or the process (above or below normal). I've tried and that doesn't work.
I have recently installed and run Advanced SystemCare so the registry and other features were ''repaired'' I assume that is in some way the cause BUT its RESTORE function isn't working and I don't have a SYSTEM RESTORE point either. I still need focus on how to fix the explorer.exe problem, not restore it.
Obviously other programs work, once I get into them. Explorer is restarting in the background.
You seem to have a classic case of "malicious software" loading under the guise
of a common [executable] program. Get yourself a 1Gb USB stick and access
the web from a more stable computer.
Download this utility and unzip the files to the USB stick.
Boot your computer into safe mode and right-click the taskbar and click
Task Manager. When the new window opens click explorer.exe then click
End Process......then YES. Next click Applications and then New Task.
When the little box appears click Browse. In new window click My Computer
and double-click the drive letter of the USB stick and run a-squared in
Deep Scan mode. When the scan is complete restart your computer.
