I have not used Errortek, and having Goggled the name I would stay well clear of it - WOT gives most of Errortek sites danger warnings!

Download, install and update SuperAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes (Google will give you download details). Then do scans with both programs - this should clear most, if not all,of the problems.

"I have a problem with explorer some really funny things happen"

what sort of things?

Perhaps you need to do a repair to replace any file spyware doctor has removed.

OPTION 1 - Repair XP by replacing corrupt files
Type

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.

If still having problems after trying all remedies you could try this.
It takes a while but they will make sure that you have a clean computer when finished.
If you would like to donate it is up to you.

Just use this if all else fails.
