explorer.exe problems

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Basically, this happend to my brothers laptop: He was using the thing for quite a while now and hes not very skilled with PCs. Anyway, today he came to me that its not working. I fire it up and well, it boots up, but the explorer.exe doesnt work. You can press ctrl+atl+del and run anything now explorer.exe related from there through run. I ran antivirus, about 5 viruses and a few spyware progs and removed a few things as well. Still didnt fix the issue of explorer.exe not working tho. I tryed rewriting the file with a working one from my PC, didnt help. I tryed the system repair through the repair function when you boot up from the Windows CD (the long, install-like one), didnt help either.

Anybody, pls, any clue how to fix this?
