    I've been said to move here... any idea of what is going on???

    Hello, experts.. I've been having trouble w/ explorer.exe when I turn on my computer or restart it.
    I get the following message:
    Explorer.exe - Error
    Instruction 0x784abd4e references to memory 0x006c0075. Memory cannot be written. Click OK to end program.

    I've run everything I know (CWshredder, Adaware, Spybot) and I got my new log here:

    Lyta, please update your version of Hijack This to the latest one which is v1.97.7 and then post another log as it may show something that the older version didn't pick up.

    Well, it sounds like the explorer.exe file is corrupt.

    Have you tried removing Explorer from Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Add/Remove Windows Components. Rebooting and reinstall?

    Or maybe just upgrading to version 6?
