Windows Explorer (explorer.exe) freezes at startup

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Brandon Taylor, Jan 20, 2009.

  1. Every time I start or restart Windows, the Windows Explorer process
    ("explorer.exe") crashes. After I click on the Windows taskbar enough times,
    Windows tells me that "Windows Explorer is not responding" and gives me the
    option to restart, close, or wait. I click "Restart the program" and
    everything works fine the second time around. What's the issue here?

  3. Thanks, I just went through Windows Defender and turned off most of the
    startup programs, and now Windows Explorer is all well and good.
