At some point yesterday, my explorer.exe started to bug up. Right clicking anywhere does nothing, I cant play with icons on my desktop, I cant interact with the task bar at all, etc.
I have to do a ctrl+alt+delete and close explorer, and then reopen it to get it working again, and it happens again later. I don't know what triggers it to happen, even leaving it alone while I'm at school, had the problem when I got back.

I've scanned with spybot S&D, but that didnt fix the problem. If it is a virus, its going a fairly good job of hiding from me..

Anyone seen this error and/or know what I can do to try and prevent it from happening?
