    Sounds like some malware of sorts. Use a seperate computer to download malwarebytes, spybot, or some other good malware scanner/ remover, put it on USB drive, boot the infected machine to safe mode, and install/ run from USB. Might also just be explorer is crashed...

    The problem this guy is having, I've seen on other computers. Start Task Manager and then run explorer.exe; problem fixed.

    Of course, the best thing, is to run malware removal tools and spyware removal tools in addition to running explorer.exe. :)

    But taskmanager and probably some other access rights (like regedit) have already been changed, and logon entries are probably pointing to something which no longer exists, instead of explorer.exe.

    It's on the TR website and it's accurate.
    Follow the steps mentioned for disinfection in the prior responses, and then disable autorun per the instructions on the page listed. Also, be sure your AV is set to scan on insertion of flashdrives.
