Update your antivirus software and do a full system scan.

Also scan for spyware.

The most updated norton runs every night, and Microsoft's Anti-Spyware runs
every night. No virus, and only one spyware which is from limewire. I don't
delete it or limewire will not work. That shouldn't be the problem anyway.
So no virus or spyware. the problem is still the same. As soon as I x out
of control panel explorer crashes and reloads itself.

Limewire installs spyware.

So, yes, spyware.

Some spyware can cause problems with the Control Panel if they have *.cpl
files that show up in the Control Panel.
