matt have you tried just putting your windows xp disc back in and running it sometimes if i get a problem i do that and it instales everything back its worth a try m8 mike
The problem started a couple of days ago... i connected up my computer to the internet (broadband) after an extended period offline. windows automatic update ran and detected some stuff that i needed. after installing and rebooting i discover that explorer.exe no longer runs - i have a screen full of wallpaper, but with no icons or taskbar. also, immediately upon rebooting i get an error message:
the details of which file is involved changes, but it always seems to involve a file in a TEMP\ type folder.
so far i have tried the following:
Norton AV scan = nothing detected
AVG free scan = nothing detected
Panda Online scan = nothing detected
KAV trail version scan = nothing detected
system restore = no good, doesn't seem to do anything
i can access all my files etc. and even get applications to work, but only via the Ctrl+Alt+Del taskmanager \newtask. option. but if i simply try to run explorer.exe i get the same error message as above.
i have posted for help on other forums and someone suggested that i might have Bube.d (aka Win32.Beavis), and i followed the following method to try and remove it:
to be honest, i don't know if this is a virus or software problem. i have tried XP tweaks courtesy of http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/taskbarplus!.htm
to restore the desktop + taskbar but with no luck either.
i would really appreciate any and all help anyone could offer,
many thanks, matt
