windows explorer has stopped working....window explorer restarting

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by hunting_bears, Sep 23, 2007.

  1. I am getting this message: windows explorer has stopped working....window
    explorer restarting constantly. It seems to happen most when I do something
    in Control Panel, maybe like uninstalling a program or checking on my
    security settings, basically anything. I don't know if a program is causing
    a program. I recenently installed Roxio Media Creator 10 but then
    uninstalled it because it used up a large amount of memory and I didn't like

    hi ,there is no cure you will have to try a system restore from boot (usualy
    with limited success)or do a full re-install . the problem is caused by
    incompatible software being installed ,there are numerous "fixes"but i have
    not heard of one that works all of the time for all of the people so you
    could end up searching for fixes tryng them and still not getting anywere

    Another option is to use Control Panel (Classic view) > "Problem Reports and
    Solutions" to obtain clues as to what is causing the problem when you right
    click on the problem and View Details.

    your'e forgetting that when this happens you can't open anything when it
    happened to me i had to disable all security and restore from boot because i
    couldn't open anything so looking in event manager is pointless

    I am having the same problem and have tried several fixes which have not
    fixed it. Its not a fix but an alternative I use Free Commander which is
    a free program like Windows Explorer but has more features.

    What is the specific fault information for *your* crash according to the
    Problem Reports and Solutions Center control panel?
    has how to look that up if you don't know how.

    Each crash is potentially different, so there's really no magic bullet here
    given how much each person's computer can be individualized.
