When trying to use the windows explorer in ME I get an error message "Explorer caused an error in MFC42.dll and will now close." No further message is received. What could my problem be?

Win ME problem

There should be only one instance in windows and it should be in the c:\windows\system folder:

It also looks like the mfc42.dll may be associated with spy or adware, in particular xupiter, see this thread and install Spybot if you can.

If you are having trouble getting online, run msconfig and do a clean boot, by using the "statemgr" option on the General Page.
