Windows Explorer keeps crashing/restarting

Alright, well, this is how it happened; I saw a video of someone I subscribed to on YouTube, and he posted a video about a 'God Mode' folder, and it was real, except he forgot to put '32 bit only'.., so what it was was you had to made a new empty folder on your desktop, and rename it something like 'GodMode.{J74H37858G83E453E4G74C}' but right after I did, the folder disappeared, and Windows Explorer kept restarting about every 5-10 seconds, and I was just lucky I had another user on this computer which does still work. But I really need that first account back (it was the administrator account). So yeah, any thoughts on this would be helpful.

*Also, I forgot to note that Safe Mode doesn't work either; the screen just keeps flashing black every 5-10 seconds, which is obviously still the Windows Explorer.
