    I have some problems accessing my personal profile folder, and sub-folders.

    Explorer will crash sometimes when accessing the user folder root from time
    to time (explorer.exe appcrash / , and more often when
    accessing the Images subfolder. I remember seeing some sort of .ax module in
    the crash details but I cannot rember exactly which one).

    Windows mail crashes when accessing the Documents subfolder - error in
    Winmail.exe / (again...)

    Any explanations for this?

  2. The "" appears to be a file from the Doom game. You might want
    to contact the maker of that game to see if there are any known issues with
    installation Vista.

    I did do a Google search on the file and no joy, so thanks for the info -
    I'll investigate and see what happens...

    A shame that Vista's file search is so bad - I can't even look for the file
    on the filesystem as 99% of the time it never finds what I'm looking for (as
    opposed to 100% success under XP).

    the next question is what the heck is a game file doing when accessing my
    home directory?
