  1. Hi,
    OS : windows 7 32-bit
    I have a problem with my explorer.exe. it keeps on restarting and the only way to stop it it to run task manager and stop process. then all I have is a blank wallpaper. Also once I log in alot of .dll errors start popping up. the only way I can navigate by opening up task manager and running control panel. From there I can go to all my folders or open any word, excel files but I can't run anything on administrator mode or any anti-virus softwares. Another thing is tt My internet connection is lost, it can detect my home wiFi but it can't connect to the internet.

    Thanks,
    Ammar

    Id ask Stickman he knows alot I dont know alot about this but if you have a backup cd's/install cd you can try to back up your important data on a ext hard drive or something and try to see if a fresh install of windows will fix it but like I said you should ask some one in a higher rank than me cause im not a pro at troubleshooting computer mishap's like this.

    If viruses/malware are expected, we will investigate over there. Topic closed. :)
