Re: windows explorer

  • Click Start, and type "cmd" in Search box.
  • Once you saw cmd.exe, right-click cmd.exe, and then click "Run as administrator".
  • At the command prompt, type Sfc /scannow and then press ENTER.
This method is know as "Run System File Checker" to scan and check your files. Thats it.

Re: windows explorer

Hi, if your scan and an online scan doe's not fix the problem then get a XP bootable CD with repair and antirus tools as well as win tools. win tools. This will give you the options to boot into dos and run the anti virus programs from there and repair them before booting into XP. Goodluck mistyman

Re: windows explorer

This could be due to a spyware/virus. Have you tried running a virus scan? As you can still get online try an online virus scan: click SCAN PC NOW

Gateway gt5468 comes up with windows error box"

Explorer is the main "program" of Windows. (the actual windows and folders and icons and such are run by this software program called Explorer which works with other pieces of software to make up the Windows operating system. Having a recurring error with explorer is not a good thing.
Take the following steps to restart your explorer
-Hit Ctrl-Alt-Del and select Start Task Manager if it doesn't automatically pop up.
-Go to the processes tab and make sure explorer.exe is not there, if it is, right click and shut down the process.
-Click File-->New Task(Run)
-type in explorer and hit enter, this should restart the explorer.
-If possible then try running a full virus scan as well as run a scan disk with fix any errors checked

If you cannot get to this process I would recommend backing up all of your important documents and re-installing windows.
I hope this helps in some way, thank you.
