when I right click windows explorer icon in the task bar I get a note"do you want the following programme to make changes.........". When I click "yes" the explorer comes. But this is a recent change I cannot guess why. I agree such cautionary notice is necessary when I open new programs. But I do not want this when I click windows explorer.  I might have done some tweaking unconsciously.

By far the simplest fix is to use Windows System Restore to roll Windows back to a point in time when your computer was functioning correctly. It allows you to undo system changes without affecting your personal files, such as e-mail, documents, or photos.

If that doesn't help, try restoring an earlier system image or backup.

No suitable restore point, backup, or image available? Kick yourself -- you missed the easy solution, and you're left with digging through Windows' many settings. :(

Just checking that you mean Windows Explorer and not Internet Explorer (the browser with the blue coloured E in the taskbar)
