    Graphics driver issue maybe? Have you not got a restore point you can use?

    That'd make me think you're either infected or you've somehow corrupted something.

    I'd try a restore point first and if that fails do a repair install (if you're not SP1).

    Ok I will try that. Thanks. I did do scan with malwarebytes and no detection. Sfc /scannow went fine also. Will do AV scan next then restore last

    Explorer.exe is in task manager now
