Would it be possible for you to run a Linux live cd to see if explorer.exe is still in the system 32 folder?

Do you have a working computer with a CD drive? (if no cd drive, you can use a memory stick, but that's harder).
Google 'puppy linux'. Download the iso file (don't worry, it's a pretty small file). Burn the iso to a blank cd. Boot up the computer eighths disc in tray. Browse the C drive for explorer.exe in the system 32 folder.

Make sure your hardware are properly connected,and check you BIOS if you are running your graphic card as primary display adapter.

Since when is it happening?

If your pc was good earler,try doin a system restore...else if reinstalling windows would be a better option.

No
In order to check your BIOS you need to restart pc and quickly press f2
Google it for more info on how to use BIOS..coz a simple change in value could stop your pc to function properly.
better safe than sorry ...so id say get some info on how to use bios

Either go to c:\Windows\System32 and start CMD.EXE and do a sfc /scannow
or follow this tut (option 1 of the howto I gave you earlier)

SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot
