Default Explorer.exe failure I have no idea whts going on please help

I am a newb to a lot of things as far as pcs go. A buddy of mine linked me to this forum and I'm hoping one of you guys may know whats going on here.



The drive this is speaking of is an external hard drive. That kind of threw me off becuase I think this has something to do wtih windows registry but windows is installed on my C drive. Any ideas of whats going on and how to fix it? Id really appriciate the help thanks a lot

Must be partially readable due to you still having a task bar. XD
