Hi, Does anyone know where I can get another explorer.exe file for windows xp service pack 3 because I tried running a patch to patch explorer.exe and soon after realized that it was meant for service pack 2 and when I try running the patch again to restore the original explorer.exe it doesn't work and I don't have a windows xp service pack 3 cd, when I try putting the sp2 cd into my drive and go to task manager and click new task and type in "SFC /SCANNOW"
it displays a msg box that explorer.exe has been modified and needs to be restored however it requires the sp3 cd and when I click retry nothing happens. if anyone knows where I could obtain another explorer.exe file for win xp sp3 please tell me! thank you!

Hello All , I have got a solution :) , first this problem is caused viruses these viruses disabled explorer.exe services to activate this process and because you dont have option to use only task manager so please do the following :

2) Choose TASK MANAGER .
3) Click on NEW TASK.
4) Type Explorer.exe
5) Directly windows will open :)
6) Then Remove these viruses by using your Antivirus.

Please dont hesitate to ask me any questions.
