    Win Explorer Keeps shutting down
    Help! Windows Explorer keeps trying to run and shuts down on it's own. My pc is experiencing ALL kinds of problems. I've already tried:

    Reinstalling windows
    Replaced my RAM
    Replaced my Video Card
    Unplugged my DVD writer
    Updated my BIOS
    Formatted my hard drive


    I can't find anything on this. I don't know where else to go with this! Please! PLEASE PLEASE! Someone has to be able to help me!

    I'm so desparate here. I've had partial help from several people so far and still have not been able to come up with the source of my problem and it just seems to be getting worse. It started out just with a simple reboot every so often and now all kinds of things aren't working correctly. When windows starts sometimes it says that it has recovered from a serious error and suggests that there is something wrong with PowerDVD's drivers, but I've uninstalled that software and before that I tried updating the drivers. Nothing! Still having all my problems. C

    Can anyone figure this out?

    Either the hard drive is dying or you ahve a trojan/spyware.

    It would help if you get the exact message.

    Also try running HighJackThis and post a log here.
