Trying to fix my aunts computer and whenever I turn it on, explorer.exe doesn't come up. I have to ctrl+alt+del and start it that way to get the desktop to come up. I know its probably spyware/virus, so what can I do to get explorer to come up, other than virus scan. Ive also tried doing chkdsk at startup and it didn't help at all. Any suggestions would help, but if its a question, I wont be able to answer till tomorrow. Its a Dell desktop running Windows XP Pro Sp2. Thanks for the help and suggestions.
