Here's mine, on Windows 7 Ultimate, x64. I think you're OK. Anything wrong with your system? Or you're just got curious?

Note, how the "Date Modified" is the same for everybody

Quote:
Windows File Explorer is a file manager for Windows similar to Windows Explorer. But Windows File Explorer uses a different approach: it features many options that Microsoft's Windows Explorer is missing like image preview and it has two fixed file views side by side (but can be change to a single file view) that is useful when copying many files from folder to folder.

Hi,

The file is exactly the same size on my system (x86)...

explorer.exe INFECTED?.pls help.Thank You-explorer.png

Depending on what updates are installed, there may be slight changes to the file but it's nothing to worry about.

For piece of mind, you may wish to download MalwareBytes and perform a Full System Scan.
Note   Note
Most full scans will detect threats but 9/10 are actually harmless due to them being cookies with certain signitures. Once the scan is complete, read the log to see if/what threats it picks up
