Not a virus but I found a corrupt image would crash explorer. If you set that image as the desktop background, even better crashes.
This item was never resolved in XP and my bet is not in Vista either. So that's my thought here. You'll have to find a way to find the bad jpeg or such image and move it off the machine.
recently updates apple softwares (itune/quicktime) and i downloaded something from a site, can't remember what it was and my antivirus warned me about some bug when installing it... it was suppose to be a activex object 2.07 or something like that... it somehow automatically install antivirus pro that pops up all the time... windows defender warned me to restart the system, so i did so..
when i log into windows (vista) my explorer keeps restarting every 10 seconds or so...
has anyone experience this before?
i'm boot into ubunutu (which i regularly use now adays) to post this from...
i ran windows malicious program remover from their website and it reported a trojan which it removed (before this norton antivirus didn't report sh**)
i restarted and explorer still playing up
help help, i don't wannt reinstall vista... i'm dual booting with ubuntu... and worse i didn't have any restore points
