Hi,

 

I'm running XP SP3. When my computer starts, I see the taskbar flash on and then disappear, and the same thing happens when I try to launch the explorer.exe process from the command line. This also happens in safe mode. All system checkpoints from before the start of this problem have disappeared so I can't do a system restore. I've run malwarebytes and not found any viruses. I can launch individual programs from the command line (which I start from task manager), so that is what I'm doing for now. If anyone has any ideas on how to fix this I would greatly appreciate it.

Can you download the portable version of the windows all in one repair tool and run it with the default items ticked.

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried downloading the full, non-portable version and ran it with the default items ticked. Unfortunately, that did not fix the problem.

Be careful if you use the harder fixes since you cant restore back,unless the all in one repair fixed it?

 

I might be looking at fixing system restore also,

 

you have file corruption for some reason with that and explorer.exe not working.

 

Is the filecheker and chkdsk working?
