My boss brought his home computer into the office for me to see if I can fix it. I've spent the last 3 days working on it and have come to the realization that I have no idea what's going on. At first I wasn't able to open Task Manager but found a registery setting that was changed, so I changed it back to allow me to get into Task Manager.
His explorer.exe keeps resetting about every 20-30 seconds it'll load then reset and the go through the cycle again. In Windows Task Manager I end the process, and then I'm able to open browsers to search for different things I can try.
I've done a Virus Scan with AVG free, I've done an online virus/malware scan at Panda, I've run VonduFix, and today I ran ComboFix. I've also tried going through the repair of his Windows Home Edition OS.
Each scan found different problems that I allowed the program to fix.
Each time I reboot the computer I'm hopeful that it'll work, and then explorer.exe restarts.....
