Windows 7: Explorer.exe 'error'

Explorer.exe 'error'

Hello 2 all

First off all, this problem is not the same as the other user: dmex
Second, sorry if my English is not well written.......
Third, here's the problem: When i click the explorer button in the task bar, a pop up window pops up (duh.....) and shows the following message (I translated it from PT, so if is not well, sorry.....): 'This file does not have an affiliate program that allows you to perform this action. Install a program or if one is already installed, create an association in control panel 'default programs'.

I've followed the instructions and that's all ok @ the control panel.......
Hope that some1 helps.......

Thanks in advance,
J.B.

Hello JB. I have been reading up on some things and have to agree with usasma about running your antivirus program. More than likely its a virus. I personally like avg and its free.

free.avg.com

I hope that this helps. If not, let me know.
Thanks,
Sarah
