Help to fix Windows explorer restartin problem

Hello,

I looked through the already solved questions but i had no luck. So this is the case.

I am using vista business and repeatedly i get this error of Windows explorer has stopped working...windows explorer is restarting and then every open window that browses in my folder closes. firefox, music players etc keep working.

I checked on the reports within the control panel and it gives out this

Maybe you can post part of CBS.log...  I'll bet that VistaGlazz replaced your uxtheme.dll system file, and perhaps others.

Find Notepad on the Start Menu under Accessories, right click it, then select Run as Administrator.  You should then be able to navigate to the log and open it.

Yep, it looks like uxtheme.dll and some other system files connected with Windows themes were modified ("corrupted") by VistaGlazz.  Hopefully, your problem is solved...
