Fixed the entires several times with no luck.  Spysweeper keeps appearing stating it detected a new program Win32Explorer. Every time I remove it, it reappears. I've tried to locate the explorer32.exe file but have not been able to. Any Ideas?

Still no luck on removing it.  The spy sweeper repeatedly asks to remove "win32explorer".  I remove it but it keeps coming back.

===========================================

but fix them in safmeode..... then reboot in normal mode to check for the problem ??

explorer32.exe basically related to W32.Kwbot.Worm..... but this worm doesnt name it as "Win32 Explorer".... it names it as "Windows Explorer Update Build 1142"

So im not thinking of that worm here..... :-\
