Hello and welcome. Please give this a go.

Open Task Manager (Ctrl + Alt + Del) and go to File >> New Task (Run...) >> type explorer.exe >> Enter


Then, do a search for your explorer.exe via your search function..

You may find the copy of explorer.exe via either of below locations..

C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386\explorer.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache\explorer.exe

Just choose either one of them and copy/paste it to C:\WINDOWS folder..

Helo ,is this an XP system?
Then try sfc /scannow

You will need your XP CD handy.

Open Windows Task Manager....by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ESC

Then click File.. then New Task(Run)

In the box that opens type sfc /scannow ......There is a space between c and /

Click OK
Let it run and insert the XP CD when asked.

This is an excellent example of how important it is to start with checking basics first then move on to the more complex or involved solutions. Like, you don't replace a PSU if the cord came unplugged from the wall or you don't replace a switch if the network cable is bad.
I would never ask a person to do something that I wouldn't do myself.
