HELP! Explorer Closes A Split Second After It Opens

    When I log onto my account (Windows XP Home), I see the Explorer bar at the
    bottom appear and disappear within half a second. I am now on a different
    computer asking for help. I have tried to manually start explorer.exe
    through the Task Manager but the same thing happened--opened and closed right
    away. I now can only open things with the Task Manager and I can't open
    internet explorer at all. I fear I may have a virus, but I just scanned the
    system not 10 minutes before this started happening. Before this, I received
    a notice from Microsoft Anti-Spyware that something was trying to install,
    but I opted to remove it. It did remove it, and said I had to restart. When
    I did restart, the Explorer errors occurred. I am substantially worried and
    would appreciate any help. Thanks.
