Unable to locate component Explorer EXE

Oh dear, Explorer.exe is the front end.
This is the user shell, which we see as the familiar taskbar, desktop, and other user interface features. This process isn't as vital to the running of Windows as you might expect, and can be stopped (and restarted) from Task Manager, usually with no negative side effects on other applications. space.gif
Note: The explorer.exe file is located in the folder C:\Windows. In other cases, explorer.exe is a virus, spyware, trojan or worm! Check this with Security Task Manager.

Boot the computer until it comes to a point where you can only see the cursor. Then press CTRL + ALT + DEL. This will open the TASK MANAGER. In the Task manager, go to FILE and then click on NEW TASK and then type the following EXPLORER.EXE

This will make your desktop icons appear. Once they do appear, go to control panel and uninstall the antvir.Then restart and Install a different antivirus like Kaspersky

I can't get my laptop to boot up.

It sounds like your Explorer.exe is corrupted or missing. when you see your desktop wallpaper then you can try to open task manager my pressing Ctrl+Altr+Delete keys all at a time and now click "new task" and type Explorer.exe and press enter. if your Explorer is OK then your icon and other thing should land up if not then restart computer and try to open computer in safe mood by pressing F8, if you can open then try restoring your computer to earlier date by going to start----program---accessories----system tools -----system restore.

I have n acer laptop when i turn iton ony my wallpape comes on no icons and i can not do nothing with it what do i do

Hi there,

Try to press and hold the Ctrl + Shift + Esc keys on your keyboard, when the taskmanager comes up release the keys.

On the taskmanager Click File -> New Task -> Run
In the box type in explorer.exe you may have to wait a while for the explorer to be loaded.
If the icons comes back successfully open internet explorer and go to and the run the file this will reset you explorer.exe shell. When it tells you to restart the computer go ahead and restart.

If the same thing still happens after reboot you may want to check your computer for viruses.

Hope you find this helpful!

The wallpaper shows up but the icons don't show up. I cant get to any programs.

Does the start button work?  If not, run ctrl-alt-delete and go to processes.  Check for explorer.exe.  If it is not there, click on New Process and type EXACTLY explorer.exe and hit enter.
