When you log onto Vista, you get a message saying "Windows Explorer has stopped working. Windows is checking for a solution to the problem..." and then another message pops up saying "Windows Explorer is restarting", which it then does and the process repeats itself. I googled this and the suggestion is that I download smitfraud but smitfraud does not work on Vista. Please help me!! :thumbsup:

Please let us know if Super Antispyware solved your problem. Interesting that it was recommended on a McAfee Forum!!
