hey guys, i've been having this problem for the past month now. when i start my computer, the taskbar shows up and after a few seconds it freezes. other programs that i have set to start up will NOT start until i end explorer.exe service via task manager. so it's very annoying to get around my computer without a taskbar OR the use of my desktop or even get access to folders period! i've tried many things but it's still the same! can you guys help?

oh and here is the error message when i try to open a folder while explorer.exe is running and restarting

"Windows cannot find '/dlist,:0:124,(folder name)'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search."

here is my hijackthis file.

You probably should update MBA-M and run it again as it is out of date.

Please download ComboFix by sUBs from HERE or HERE

  • You must download it to and run it from your Desktop
  • Physically disconnect from the internet.
  • Now STOP all your monitoring programs (Antivirus/Antispyware, Guards and Shields) as they could easily interfere with ComboFix.
  • Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • When finished, it will produce a log. Please save that log to post in your next reply along with a fresh HJT log
  • Re-enable all the programs that were disabled during the running of ComboFix..

Note:
Do not mouse-click combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

CF disconnects your machine from the internet. The connection is automatically restored before CF completes its run. If CF runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.

Run Combofix ONCE only!!
