I'm not asking you to open the file.

How are you booting into SafeMode?

F8 Then Safe Mode

Then I open command prompt as Admin

Enter this as you asked: findstr /c:"[SR]" cbs.log > sfcdetails.log

I get this message when enter that in Command Prompt "Can't Open CBS.log"

You say 'Also I did a sfc/ scannow 3 times ' which is wrong syntax, the command is sfc /scannow. There is a space after sfc and before the slash, if you have typed it with the space after the slash, it likely wont work.

Kevin,

Will it let you right click on the CBS.log, click on Send To and Compressed (zipped) folder, then click OK to have it on the desktop?

If so, upload that ZIP file, and I'll see what may be in the CBS.log.

Kevin,

From extracting the [SR] details from your CBS.log, it shows that your explorer.exe file is corrupted and cannot be repaired since the copy in the CAB file is also corrupted and a hash mismatch.

I attached a copy of your sfcdetails below.

Did you modify or replace the explorer.exe file for anything?

If you are not having any issues from this, then I wouldn't worry about it since you may have to reinstall if you really needed to fix explorer.exe.

Shawn,

I don't think I have changed explorer.exe What if I did a Repair Install. Would this keep all my programs?

I did change context menu.

Repair Install:

Or do you think it's better to reinstall fresh?

There is one folder that is on another drive that gives me a problem. When you select the folder it restarts explorer.exe every time. The only thing in that folder is movie files. "avi" "mp4".

Thanks,

Kevin

Yes, a repair install will be able to fix the explorer.exe file. However, be sure to read the Warning box about SP1 in the repair install tutorial. You will not be able to do a repair installed unless you either use a "retail" Windows 7 w/SP1 installation disc, or uninstall SP1 first.
