    Hey, I have a problem. My current windows os is windows ME. I don't know what happened, but now when I attempt to open my computer or anyfolder it says: Explorer caused a problem in MFC32.dll. Explorer will now close.
    Though if I right-click any kind of folder and click explore, then it doesn't come up. Can anyone help?

    I think it's probably Mfc42.dll, and it's possibly a Xupiter (spyware) issue.

    Would you please do this?

    Go to http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads.php#det , and download 'Hijack This!'.
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log somewhere, and please show us its contents.

    It is the Xupiter/Sqwire version, as I suspected. I'll be back with some recommendations.

    Run Hijack This, and check ALL of the items in bold. Doublecheck so as to be sure not to miss a single one.
    Next, shut down all Internet Explorer Windows, and have HT fix all checked.

    Now go to Control Panel > Internet (Options) > Temporary Internet Files, and press "delete files".
    Next, go to the Programs tab, and press 'Reset Web Settings'
    In the dialog box, make sure 'Also reset my home page' check box is ticked.

    REBOOT when you're done.

    That should help.

    After rebooting, download Spybot - Search & Destroy

    After installing, press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.

    Next, go to Settings > File Sets, and uncheck 'System Internals' and 'Tracks' .
    These aren't needed for our present purpose, and you can always experiment with them later on.

    Finally, after closing down Internet Explorer, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds.

    Good luck,

    Hmm. Usually this does the trick. :rolleyes:

    You may have more than just a spyware issue.

    However, try this direct download link for SpyBot S&D and run it the way I advised you to:

    http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/ssd14.exe

    That ought to work. Tell us how that goes.
