Default Explorer.exe

Hi everyone,

I'm fixing a computer for a friend, don't worry I do know what I'm doing. I am having one slight problem, however. It seems as though their explorer file on a Windows XP Home SP2 has gone corrupt. My only two options are to reinstall the OS, which I would just rather not do, or find someone who is kind enough to post or e-mail me a copy of their explorer.exe file. If anyone would please do me this favor I would be very grateful. Thanks in advance.

P.S. The sooner the better.

first of please edit your post and remove your email , unless you wanna get tons of spam or spyware , anyway theres 1 option you arent aware of which is to do a repair install see this guide
a repair install only replaces changed/currupted files no data is lossed (the drivers/installed programs/all other data will remain intact)
