    I'm runnin XP pro...

    every time I log onto Windows, I get the error "windows explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close", then I'm left with no taskbar, desktop icons or anything. I have to run all my programs through the task manager. Every time I try to start explorer.exe this way, I get the error.

    I'm guessing the file is corrupted or something... it's a real pain in the ass to have to always use the task manager and alt+tab to use this computer...


    anyways, does anyone know how I can fix this? I have the XP install cd, but it got scratched up pretty bad when I moved a while back, and won't run setup to do a repair install. I even got a copy of a friend's explorer.exe, but it doesn't work either. totally different error with it...



    somebody please help me before I throw this comp through a window...

    get a non-scratched CD... I assume your cd-key isn't scratched :rolleyes:

    great idea! I'll just go grab another cd from my big pile of winXP discs I have for just this reason....







    the thread title says 'explorer.exe error', not 'scratched cd'




    :ugh:
