Hello.. please help.

My PC got infected by a virus or a worm C:\SUD\SSOW\sep.exe and everytime I will open windows explorer, the " windows explorer experienced a problem..." message would appear and then it would freeze. It is only after I end the explorer.exe process that the pc would run again. Now I cannot open windows explorer because of that, all applications are running well except for the windows explorer.

I managed to delete C:\SUD\SSOW\sep.exe by Malwarebytes anti-malware but still windows explorer acts the same. please help.

Thank you.

Unless you added them, you should probably remove these.

The Explorer crashes seem to be a remnant of your virus attack. Check if removing the above entries helps, but it probably won't, as I'm guessing your explorer.exe got corrupted by the virus.
