I apologize I know you peeps have real virus and trojans to kill but I swear I hate this stupid computer.
My login works great all is fine but when my wife logs on her user the desktop is missing 90% of the icons and the task bar is missing. I have researched and found that the explorer.exe is the cause of my frustration but i can't figure out how to fix it. I have defraged, i have rebooted, i have restored, i have ran task manager I have tried to locate the old one and copy it and i have now given up. if it was mine i would just say screw it and start over, but it is the wifes and she aint happy which means I am working on it instead of being in bed trying to get some.
somebody please tell me how to find her old explorer.exe
this is the 2nd or third time this has happened and it usually comes back after a reboot... but not this time..

My first guess...would be that her profile is damaged, since the problem doesn't impact other users.

I would create a new profile for your wife.
