Their is a Explorer.exe Torjan running about the world.

explorer.exe trojan - Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs


I do believe it should be verified that the system is clean.

I don't think I'm allowed to state any more about infections.

I know that

I just thought the OP was using the wrong terminology. I have had people that say explorer.exe when they mean internet explorer. So I wanted to know what they meant.

I am not that dumb if i was referring to Internet Explorer then it will be "iexplore.exe"

Sorry, was not trying to imply that you were. And that could easily be a typo.

Like I said, just making sure.

Anyway, regarding your issue:

Under C:\Windows\explorer.exe you could boot into a live linux cd and delete explorer.exe and then copy a fresh version from a windows 7 sp1 disk. Or, grab it from here if you do not have a disk:

So still nobody was able to confirm what the current version of explorer.exe since if you search for explorer.exe under C:\Windows you will get several explorer.exe with different versions.
