Seems I'm another victim of the restarting explorer.exe virus. I don't know any possible ways I could have gotten this but I've got it.
Explorer.exe seems to restart every 5 seconds and cannot open any via the desktop and I end up killing explorer.exe out of sheer frustration. I'm working on my Eagle Scout project and I have a lot of documents pretaining to my project on this computer so I am very hesitant to reinstall windows.

Here is my HijacThis log:
