I'll try to describe what i did before i got this problem.
I have RealOne player, and when i started it today i had to update it, it was 144 kb update, and when it was finished an automatic install process had started (but don't know if it was from real one player), and at the middle of the installation Kaspersky Internet Security popped up with a warning that there is a trojan in some web adress, i dont remember which, because it wasn't like an ordinary name of web address, but im sure it's name was starting with http.

I clicked deny on the virus, and soon, my explorer.exe closed, and then automatically started again, but then it closed again, and so on, until i restarted my computer.

When i clicked on my user account, the explorer.exe again closed and the same process again, then i - end task explorer.exe on Windows Task Manager, and it didn't start anymore.

So using Task Manager, i started Firefox, and here im writing my problem without desktop toolbar (start menu), without icons, and if i start explorer with Task manager two processes start at the same time : explorer.exe and imapi.exe. And then first impai.exe closes first (i see that in the Task Manager,), and after imapi.exe, explorer.exe closes automatically.

Hope i will get HELP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, BECAUSE I CAN'T WORK WITHOUT EXPLORER.EXE

I was able to start HijackThis through TaskManager and did a scan so here it is:

Please download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) and save it to your Desktop.

  • Double-click on dss.exe and follow the prompts.
  • When it has finished, dss will open two Notepads main.txt and extra.txt -- please copy (CTRL+A and then CTRL+C) and paste (CTRL+V) the contents of main.txt and extra.txt in your next reply.

Please do not pm for help, post it in the forums instead.
