Hi,
I'm using WinXP sp1, in which explorer.exe has been infected by download.trojan virus as periodically reported to me by NAV2002 (fully upgraded DEF.)

Can anyone tell me how to restore a copy of the original file?

Additional Info: Explorer.exe strangely tries to access the internet, I noticed that through ZoneAlarm.. everytime I try to open a explorer window such as "My Computer" , "My Documents" and other progs. that uses explorer.exe gets crashed.

please help me! Many thanks in advance.
