Exclamation Explorer.EXE no Such interface supported
I am not sure what is going on or why this is happening, but when I right click the desktop and I click personalize, this message comes up saying No Such Interface Supported. The window title is Explorer.EXE, I did notice that the EXE is uppercase not lowercase, which seems wrong to me. Because of this, I cannot open windows update or Default programs or Action Center. If you click on those, nothing happens. What should I do? I tried re-registering the Dall files through command prompt and tried a system restore. I have windows 7 64bit, 4GB of ram, ATI Radeon Mobility HD 5650 switchable graphics. Should I use my Avast! to do a boot time scan if this is a virus? (I have attached a picture of the message)

Have you used any "tools" on the machine?

Have you tried a restore point from earlier?

You can access those things from the Control Panel.

The only tools that I have used is Advanced systemCare 5 Pro, and CC Cleaner. I did try a restore point, but it seems to always fail. A Recovery wont work because the recovery partition is messed up (So I have to order a recovery DVD).

Both of those tools can do a great deal of damage to a system. They both include registry cleaners. Most people who use Ccleaner skip the part about "cleaning" the registry. There is no reason ever to do that. The other program also has a registry cleaner.

I'd suggest restoring the backups of the registry parts mercilessly hacked out by that butchering software. If that is not possible, you may have to try to restore an undamaged registry from a restore point.

The so-called "Registry Fix" and especially the "Deep Registry Fix" find "errors" that do not exist and then "fix" them by deleting anything the program does not understand, including many important keys. It is more likely to slow down your machine that help it since the system and programs then search in vain, 1000's of times each minute, for entries that no longer exist.

The registry is self-maintaining.

Hmm. I will try to do that. Should I not use any program like that? Or is other cleaning features other then the registry one ok. Is there anything else I can do?
