My Windows Explorer constantly restarts itself, from when I turn on the computer to shut down. This happened only recently( today up to like right now as I'm typing).
Help is much appreciated, and yes I have searched this forum for my problem and read the thread with similar name. It did not help(unless i missed something).

Steps Taken

1. I uninstalled Visual Studio 2006.
Originally, I thought the problem had something to do with it, since the orginial popup error message was a dialog for me to choose to debug explorer.exe, which closes either way.
2. Restarted my computer several times.
3. Completed virus search with Symptec AntiVirus on my computer.

System Info

Microsoft Windows XP

I would suggest a free, online scan to see if something has gotten by your Norton protection.
(Be advised that some of these scanners will pickup things in "quarantine" from other anti-virus programs - so review the results carefully)
