User Reviews of the "explorer.exe"

  • SAFErating from user antihacker101 (Variant: 16329)

    even though this file comes with the OS, this worm i been fighting intercepts from hardware higher than boot before kernel. antiviruses will show clean, but memory viewers show that alterations are happening. it seems through over 600 formats, that our drives are rewritten where partitions will kill any programs that touch it aka access violations. i had to low level format till the dos program finished, then fdisk, then format using win98 original cd, and now its finding partitions that are screwed after the mbrs dont match..
