From what you describe, it appears to be a flash drive infection.

Flash drive infections usually involve malware that loads an autorun.inf file into the root folder of all drives (internal, external, removable). When the removable media is inserted, autorun looks for autorun.inf and automatically executes a malicious autorun.bat file which calls wscript.exe to run autorun.vbs on your computer. When a flash drive becomes infected, the Trojan will infect a system when the removable media is inserted if autorun has not been disabled.

Download Flash_Disinfector.exe by sUBs and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear.
  • The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well.
  • Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
  • Reboot your computer when done.
Note: Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive plugged in when you ran it. Don't delete this folder...it will help protect your drives from future infection.

Go to Start > Run and type: cmd
press Ok
At the command prompt, copy/paste:
cd \
dir /as /ah
press Enter.
Please advise what files are showing.

exiplorer.exe is related to malware not Windows Explorer.

windows cannot find "exiplorer.exe",make sure you type the name correctly

Are you getting this error at startup?

If so, the file is an orphaned entry related to malware that was set to run at startup. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file was removed. However, an associated registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up.

When Windows loads, it looks for any files associated with registry entries for programs that are set to run at startup. If the file was removed but not the registry entry, Windows will display an error message indicating that the file was not found. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the program when it loads.

To resolve this download AutoRuns
  • Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if your not sure how to do this.)
  • Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
  • Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.
  • When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.
  • Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to exiplorer.exe.
  • Right-click on the entry and choose delete.
  • Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.

Please insert your flash drives before we begin!

Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" or "Safe Mode With Command Prompt" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode With Command Prompt".

Go to Start > Run and type: cmd
  • press Ok.
  • At the command prompt, type in your primay drive location, usually C:
  • You may need to change the directory. If so type: cd \
  • Hit Enter.
  • Type: attrib -s -h -r -a autorun.inf
  • Hit Enter.
  • Type: dir
  • Hit Enter.
  • Repeat the above commands for each drive on your computer.
Now search for and remove exiplorer.exe
  • At the command prompt, type in your primay drive location, usually C:
  • Type: dir /s exiplorer.exe
  • Hit Enter.
  • If the file is present, type: del exiplorer.exe
  • Repeat the above commands for each drive on your computer.
  • Exit the command prompt and reboot normally.
Download Clean Autoruns.zip by Mosaic1 and save it to your desktop.
  • Create a new folder and extract (unzip) the files into it. (Click here for information on how to do this if not sure.)
  • Once extracted, open the folder and double-click on Clean autoruns.bat to run the fix.
  • If any more autoruns are found, the fix will move them to a backup folder.
  • If any more autoruns are found on the root of your drives, it will kill Explorer so that the registry entries in the MountPoint(s) key are fixed.
  • All Shell Subkeys in your MountPoints(2) keys will be will be moved to a backup folder.
Note: This fix will create a folder named autorun.inf on your drives so don't be concerned. When that folder is there, it prevents future autorun.inf files from being created. It is an inoculation against the autorun.inf file which is the infector.

Let me know how your computer is acting when done.
