Explorer.exe keeps crashing and laptop keeps restarting

    I can't find a simple answer to this on any site I can find so this is the only place I can ask.

    My HP Pavilion dv7 keeps restarting about 5-10 seconds after logging in. Sometimes I can catch an error message saying "explorer.exe has stopped working. Press OK to terminate the program" before it restarts. I have no idea if it's responisble or not, but given it was fine Wednesday before the error message showed up leads me to believe it.

    I can't access anything on my desktop at all during this period, as a lot of the answers require downloading something or doing something on the desktop. So I need to find a solution on the start up screen. It's Windows 7, if that helps.

    EDIT: So I decided to run a disk check and that worked. Never mind this thread is cancelled.
