If you can be more specific, that'd be very appreciated. Without specific description about the problem, it's hard to guess and will take time to write down everything about "windows explorer has stopped working". At least mention the operating system, when this happens, how this happens, etc..

If it happens during the windows startup, you'll need to repair the windows. If it happens while running a program or when you open the windows explorer (eg. my computer), then you need to scan the whole computer using an updated antivirus. There are several steps to get rid of this, but the steps are also vary from windows version to windows version and will take very long to explain everything from windows xp to windows 7.

In fact, you can run the windows explorer from the command prompt, from the run or from the Task Manager. Press the windows key + R on the keyboard simultaneously and type in "explorer.exe" (without quotes) and let me know the result.

Awaiting your reply.

Facebook closes explorer

this is a issue with Internet Explorar, I guess you are using IE8, we cant do anything unless microsoft resolve all the issues. This is because some websites are not tested on IE8 and can't match with them.
solution: user firefox/google chrome, till the time IE8 is fully functioning, blame it on microsoft

Must rate me fixya.........thanks

Backspace doesnt work

in all likelihood your shift key is stuck. try pressing and releasing both shift keys in an attempt to "free" them. Also, check to ensure that "sticky keys" is not enabled on your computer(pressing and holding the shift key for about 10 seconds should pop up a window if it is. if the window appears, just make sure that the key is not "stuck" by windows).

Solution: mechanical agitation for your shift keys to attempt to free them, and a good thorough cleaning for all of your keyboard with canned air and/or a lint free cloth damp with dilluted isoprophyl alchohol to prevent this from happening in the future with these or other keys. Alternately, replace your keyboard.
