(Win XP) Serious Explorer.exe problems
Okay heres the situation... I lent my computer to my sister who knows next to nothing about virus protection or anything like that and so she comes home for the summer and I decide I want some pictures that I have stored on there so I open up the folders and stuff and im going along just fine until...
I can't open any folders at all, so i'm just like oh well let me end explorer.exe and restart it from the task manager... I end it, try to start it back up... It comes up for a second and then it disappears.
Then so I just try to restart, but no, I get an Unmountable Boot Volume error. So I pop in the installation disk that I got for my new computer because the old one is gone somewhere and install windows into a different folder on the same partition (Only have one partition and wanted to keep my data)
I run chkdsk /r and try to open up the old windows installation... Viola it works... until... Still NO explorer.exe capabilities, any idea what is up with this?
I would try system restore but i'm afraid it might reverse the chkdsk. Any help?
Solved by running system restore, got rid of the parameters for dual boot but it opens explorer.exe wooo **** yea lol
