Explorer.exe(I think) not starting.

Hello all,

I sometimes do have the problem that iff I start my pc, it first starts normal, but after i only see this screen (my background), the file is attached. I can't do much except pressing ctrl+alt+del, and iff i do so the screen turns black. As soon as i press enter again it goes back to my background. I dont see anything except my background, so not my mouse or something.

I need help please!

Robert.

That doesn't work, nothing happens then, but my mouse does show the loading sign, so something is happening but it just doesnt open.

It just happens sometimes, my computer starts and first the screen is black, after pressing enter and such sometimes, it turns to my background and that is all, nothing happens after.
Help please!

I actually think it is sleeping mode, u know when u are for a long time not on your computer, it switches to that and it is excatly the same as sleeping mode. But the problem with sleeping mode is that if my computer switches to sleeping mode, I can't get it back to normal, which is also the problem with when my computer has the starting issue. Do u know anything to fix sleeping mode problems?

Thanks.

Because i didn't use that iso file, but the scanner from them, because they said at the webpage that the scanner is working better, so i used that one. It said there were no infections, but i still have the problem. So can u suggest something please?

Can you boot into safe mode?, if so try a System Restore
