K I had been asking over in the Win 7 forum (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic313223.html
) and they sent me here. I have 32-bit Windows 7 Professional on an Acer AspireOne Netbook model AOA-150. I have 1 Gig of ram and a 1.60 GHz Intel Atom processor. I have been getting BSODs for a while, mostly with no side-affects. I tried uninstalling and replacing my virus (Avira AntiVir) with AVG which didn't work so I wound up going back to Avira. This morning my computer gave me a BSOD and when I restarted I got an error message as soon as I logged on saying "explorer.exe is corrupt" and said "The File or directory C:\ProgramData\Microsoft is corrupt or unreadable. Please run chkdsk." I tried running chkdsk but it didn't work. (It's possible I didn't wait long enough, but it seemed like it'd froze.) Also when I tried going to that folder I found that it didn't even exist. I did a virus scan and didn't find anything so I'm completely at a loss. OH. Also I have to re-enter the password to my wifi network all the time now, instead of Windows remembering it. Idk if that's significant, but it happened after the last BSOD. Please help! Thanks.
EDIT: I said "---.exe" in the title because I've also gotten the error with Trillian (trillian.exe) and when I go to the properties of My Computer I get a "control.exe" error. Also a bunch of my start menu shortcuts are missing and apparently some of the programs actually are too but I don't seem to have more HD space then before so idk...
