Yep you may be right. Update on the manner. I tried doing an repair through the disk but apparently, explorer is still having the problem. Does this mean I should start backing up all my data?

yes if you have another internal hard drive installed you should back up everything that is important too you.
you can use a external drive also if you don't have any internal drives installed, (i'm a nut and have 4 internal drives and 2 external)

if it is just the one user account and not the admin account it could just be corruption of the account, it happens here at work pretty often (though we are STILL on xp *vomit*) you could just re-create a new account and avoid the full reinstall. also you could yank data from the corrupted account and transfer it to the new one pretty easily without needing extra drives/memory sticks.

also back ups never hurt smile.gif

That's what I was thinking but I noticed that many services are not running even on admin.

that sucks, but if the corruption is present in both its probably best to do a re-install. hopefully you have a spare drive or 2 to back up your data/pics/etc

I'll try looking into if chrome and ie is causing the explorer crashes. As far as I know this does not happen without running the browser. Will update once I sort that out.

Update: Looks like chrome was the problem. It seems that the thing the solved everything was resetting the winsock through cmd. Anyways, got it working now. Thanks for the help though.
