    As soon as I open the computer, explorer.exe starts freezing and restarting. If I kill the process in the task manager, the computer is fine and I can surf the web, open programs, etc. I tried rebooting it in Safe Mode, it does the same thing. I ran sfc scannow from cmd, it told me it found some corrupted files but could not repair them.

    I don't know what to do anymore. Please help ! Here's my HijackThis log. This is my parents' computer, they NEVER use it, I don't get how they could have gotten a virus. and it's not my fault, I use my own computer to look at porn :p

    Oh well I won't need your help after all, figured it out by myself, it was a file I downloaded on their desktop earlier today that did this. Took me a long time to finally get to delete it between two restarts but I did ! lol

    Thanks anyway !
