    So yesterday i tried to log into my mom's profile on my computer (second profile on the computer) and as it was loading Exploerer.exe failed to open...so pretty much the computer didn't do anything but sit there. My profile (admin profile) works just fine.....Anyone have any ideas of what might have happened? or how i can go about fixing this problem?
    -thanks!

    Exploerer.exe or explorer.exe?

    After logging (or trying to) in to your mom's profile press Control+Alt+Delete for the Task Manager. Then you want to run a program from there (at the bottom I think, I'm blurred), navigate to C:\Windows\explorer.exe and run it. That should allow the profile to continue loading but not all things that normall startup will be running.

    If it does boot this way try rebooting and see if it works now.

    If that doesn't work then try going into Safe Mode then restarting into normal mode.
