explorer.exe may be a nasty in disguise pretending to be a system process.

have you installed and run an up to date antivirus? maybe running a check for spyware with adaware or spybot may help click here click here install and update both then run one at a time and delete anything they find. run in safe mode if you need to.

ps. if its only happened recently use system restore to go back to a date you know all was well. still get an up to date spyware checker installed though even if that works and update and scan with them regularly.
