I am trying to diagnose problems with my system, and would like to know if the explorer.exe file that I have is the normal Windows one or a virus instead. The explorer exe file is in the normal place at c:\windows but I also found it in c:\windows\system32\dllcache. Is this one O.K.?

Not if it is system32; the valid "explorer.exe" is located in C:\Windows or C:\Winnt. See the BC startup database for further information.
