    Explorer is not always Windows Explorer. You may have a virus.

    Please do a free online scan.


    After, download and install StartupList.

    Reboot. Do not stop the second explorer until after you have run StartupList. It will show all running processes and will help us to see what this is a where it is located if the AV didn't help.

    StartupList produces a text file. Please copy and paste the contents into a post here.
