Explorer need not to add to auto start. It is a windows process, starts with windows automatically.

I am asking for some more help .

Try this tutorial of resetting Windows Explorer:This may also help:If none of the above steps work, then you will need to try and do a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

im not having explorer crashes, it just doesnt start on login. once i run it it works fine. im still doing the troubleshooting guide from jack sparrow

edit: ive already done system file checker, checkdisk, and repair install with no real results. made another user account to check if it was a profile problem, same issue on test account. cant get a dump from a crash because it doesnt crash to create one. this also happens in safe mode. i dont have any external media to back up my disk for a clean install.

its not a major problem because i know how to start it myself and it doesnt cause any problems unless i shut down or restart, sleep is fine. if clean install is only option i may have to keep it like this until i can get external hdd for backup.

Open Windows explorer and in the left pane, click on computer. In the upper right type "explorer.exe" (without quotes) and let it search for all iterations of the file. Post a screen shot of the results.

It should look something like this.

i know theres lots of extra stuff from rainmeter (not related to issue because of time between install and issue) but this is everything that came up.

For the backup, you can move all your personal files onto a Cloud storage program, like SkyDrive or Dropbox, they're both free to use and I believe Skydrive gives you free 8GB of space at first.

You could create a System Image, and then move the image to Skydrive/Dropbox:

It would help if you followed directions. What is that list? What folder(s)? If that's all you're showing for Explorer.exe then SFC would have never run and it's not repairable. Windows container store is missing. I'm not sure if a repair install will fix that. Perhaps a Windows clean install will be the only way out.

1. Don't run Registry utilities unless directed and with specific settings. These do more damage than good in Windows 7.

2. Don't remove Windows 7 files because you heard it was ok for Windows XP or Vista.

that list is what was requested i post by you. that is every result that it returned. system file check did run and it did find errors that it wasnt able to repair. i followed the guide that i was referred to in post 12 instructing me to replace the corrupted system files not because i heard it was ok. i did this and afterwards still returned errors with sfc that it couldnt fix. i also tried a system repair with no results.

i have run registry cleaning from ccleaner and tuneup utilities. i have registry backups as far back as march of 2012 i do before cleaning because i am aware that registry cleaning could cause problems. i have not tried to patch it using these backups yet.
