Okay, first off I'd like to say hi I am a newbie to this site and would like you guys to know that your doing a great job with techies and not so techies!

Now down to business....... I don't know how it began but out of the blue explorer didn't boot! I have no idea how it could have happened but it did. I tried to load it through task manager no good it acts as if explorer isn't a command or application, stating I should try typing it again and checking the spelling because what I typed couldn't be found. I tried to access my computer and that was no good as well I was able to reach, regedit, msconfig, and taskmanager, even access the internet still using taskmngr to open my browser. I was so mad at what happened I blindly went through the registry and deleted a few items. I know that was a bone headed move and even more a kicker I didn't log what I did! Sorry I'm a newbie. I was suffering a bit searching for fixes through google because a lot of the time I was being redirected to other sites which lead me to believe it was for sure some type of virus my McAffee missed. So disgusted I used Combofix with out the proper knowledge of using, It did stop the redirecting of sites and sped up the booting process which had slowed extremely! I do have the logs the 2 times I used it, plus I used another called hitman pro it detected that Microsoft Office 2007 was a virus and a host of others. I take complete responsibility if my PC isn't able to boot from here on out, but I have used the fix with out any extra damage being done I will attach both logs and hope that you guys can save a drowning newbie please have mercy on us impatient people and lend out a techy hand thank you for your time!

Copy c:\windows\system32\dllcache\explorer.exe C:\Windows

If asked to overwrite, select Yes.

Restart the computer.
