Explorer.exe shutting down after 10/13/2011 update

Hi, my computer went haywire last night, the explorer.exe keeps shutting down if i try to access My Computer and it is also not registering my second hard drive, it shows that it is there but the files are inaccessible. up until last night everything was working fine and i didnt have a single problem, on Wednesday night i put the computer to sleep and didn't touch it again until about 9pm Thursday night. when i turned on the computer it tried to recover on its own and it froze up, so i let it try and do its thing for about 20 min with no progress so i shut it off. i don't see why this problem would suddenly occur especially if nobody has even looked at the computer. any help is appreciated, thx guys

First thing is to add your system specs on the bottom left of your post or in user CP. Next thing is to run antivirus/malware on your computer and see if that can be the easy fix.

You can also try to restore your system to a previous state which may correct the issue.

Make sure you back up all your files asap just incase there is any hardware issues here.
