Shell / Explorer.exe, msmsgs.exe

File Name: Explorer.exe, msmsgs.exe
Status: Shell should not be running at startup. It is likely a virus, spyware, trojan, or some other sort of malicious program. Use a virus scanner, and/or spyware removal tool to remove it.
Additional Info: Added by the ZLOB TROJAN! Note - the legitimate Windows Explorer (explorer.exe) is located in the Windows or Winnt folder and would not normally appear in Msconfig/Startup unless you added it manually! This one is located in the System (9x/Me) or System32 (NT/2K/XP) folder
