Insert the XP Pro cd into your drive

Press CTRL+ALT+Del > Go to processes and for each explorer.exe click End Process > Click File at the top left > Select New Task

A run box will appear, press cmd

type: copy D:\i386\EXPLORER.EX_ C:\Windows\explorer.exe

Confirm copy by typing yes

Click File > Run > type the following in bold explorer.exe > Click ok


Reboot and post a new HijackThis log

OK, I had to start a CMD window because the "run" function did not find "Copy". It copied the file to C:\windows, but I don't think that's going to get things going. The problem was that it did not recognize explorer.exe as a valid program. I'm still puzzled.
