Could be malware, an OS update, bad driver, rouge software or any number of other thing. Can you restore to a System Restore point prior to when the problem started?

BTW, have you tried booting into W7's Safe Mode by press F8 during the OS booting up?

Windows Explorer is fundamental to Windows. Kill Explorer to get running, open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator and run SFC /SCANNOW. Allow to complete, restart and test.

If this does not work, you can run Windows Repair Install from the recovery setup or a Windows 7 DVD. Here is a Seven Forums Tutorial to assist

even it looks normal you better do a System Restore to bring your Windows back to last known-good status just in case of any active malware compoment to be loaded after system restart. Keeping your AV software updated is the thing to do afterward.

bboa's advice is sound. If you can't do a system restore for some reason then please run Malwarebytes and HitManPro just to be sure there is no malware left.
