Delete the MachineThrottling registry entry in: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SQMClient\Windows\DisabledSessions

Can you run sfc /scannow in elevated command prompt?

Also check event log and report what you find.

Be prepare. There is a high chance that the solution for this problem is a re-installation of Window.

Try running checkDisk... also try doing a "repair" from your windows Cd...

Well, if explorer.exe is borked, you have some really serious problems with your windows install.

How long has this been going on, and when did it start?
