I have 2 explorers running in task manager. I know this is really odd though, when close both out i start a new one and then later the 2nd one appears.. anyone know if this is somekinda virus or anything else it could possibly be?

Likely you have "Launch folder windows in a seperate process" checked in folder options. Means the shell and the file manager functions of explorer each run in its own process. Nothing to worry about.

yoyo is probably right on...make sure the spelling, including case is identicle...also, if you don't need it, turn it off, as it uses more memory then neccessary

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
