    Hi all,

    I really hope someone can help me out here, as this is my work box, and it will take me about a week to get everything re-installed and configured if I have to format :-(

    The problem is that if I try to open windows explorer or internet explorer, they immediately crash. I suspect that this is due to spyware / virus.

    I have since upgraded from service pack 2 - 3 and run scans with McAfee, Avast and SpyHunter3. Can't find anything ...
    All open / save dialog boxes work fine though ... which is luckily the only way i can work now ... through firefox :)

    Windows Explorer
    Error signature
    AppName: expIorer.exe AppVer: 6.0.2900.55l2 ModName: msvcrt.dll
    ModVer: 7.0.2600.5512 Offset: 00037678

    Thanks in advance!
