i was doing some looking around and i opened a folder in my documents called new folder in it was eXplorer.exe spelled exactly that way eXplorer.exe(capitol X). it also had a funny looking symbol beside it (a red one )i then did a scan on it with avg anti virus and found it to be malware. the only explorer.exe file you should have should be in your windows folder but fake explorer.exe programs will hide in other folders and be hard to detect by anti virus programs so do some custom searching. good luck!
