As the title says, explorer.exe crashes where it really shouldn't. When it crashes, it starts back up but removes 3 of the main system tray icons (Battery, Wifi, Sound). I have run numerous MBAM scans, and nothing comes up that is out of the ordinary.

What I do need help with, is reading my HijackThis log. I have no idea how to use it, and I've heard you can use it to find trojan viruses. The problem is that I do not know what is good and what is bad when reading the log, and how to remove the trojan.

Not sure if it matters, but my laptop is an HP Pavilion g6 running Windows 7.

Thanks in advance, and I apologize if I posted in the wrong thread. :)

on your keyboard hold the windows key and press r ( Windows Key + R) to bring up the run command box then type "msconfig" without quotes and then when that window opens select the "startup" tab and try to print screen and upload as many of those start up programmes as you can. Typically viruses start up when windows loads, this scrollbox you see contains all those programmes that start up.. you may very well find the virus is in there and all you do is un tick the programme which prevents it from automatically loading and of course the virus cannot run.. well that's hopefully what will happen in this case but I'll need to take a poke at those startup programmes Viruses are usually easily distinguishable with odd names and characters

I did what you said, and there is nothing abnormal in the list. If I can provide you with a HijackThis log, would you be able to help me with that?
