Exclamation Explorer not starting up!

Hey,

OK, just a few minutes ago I installed some Windows Update. Windows something 3.1, it supposed to keep track of my updates, Interent Explorer security fix, and Windows XP fix. Now when I restarted it, and login, it says explorer has screwed up or something. I manually tried to run explorer, the message appears again. The only way I can use my PC is to boot Windows 98, or run programs by using the task manager. Please HELP!!!

If you have backups of data, you could try to do a windows repair from the install disk. Or, windows updates typically appear in the Add/Remove programs menu, if you can get there.

WAIT!!! I have an idea. What if I do system restore? Where can I find that, by using Taskmanager?
