Internet Explorer Keeps Trying to open

When I start my HP PC (Windows Vista) I get a message saying 'Windows Explorer" has ceased functioning. It then says its looking for a solution and proceeds to keep looping/cycling thru the same 2 messages endlessly. The **problem** is it never stops ergo I cant access anything on the desktop as it blocks all access. Thus no access to program manager or ANYTHING. It wont even allow me to turn it off w/o yanking the battery and unplugging it.
I've read some advice about turning off the IE and so on, but I have zero control over the PC...?? Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Cheers David, Paris France.

    Thx much! am sure that would work. Also read abt how to do a safe mode and a system restore. However as the "windows explorer" message never stops flashing, it prevents my accessing anything on the desktop, including being able to open a program manager, etc. Nothing works, i.e. clicking has no function so decided to bite the bullet and bring it in.

    Thx again tho! \

  3. Wait, Internet explorer OR Windows explorer? Just letting you know that they are completely different things. If the problem is in Windows explorer you should back-up all your data and do a clean reinstall of your OS.
