Windows Explorer in Vista not working when User Accts turned ON

  1. Windows Vista 32 Ultimate

    I have a default user account as administrator. No password. Took a while to
    figure out, but when user account is turned on, Explorer (not Internet
    Explorer) stops working. I get the following symptoms. Click on "Computer" in
    Start Menu, and just hangs for minutes. Eventually get message that "windows
    explorer not responding". If you close is down, not error number or other
    message. When you go to Control Panel, it works at first, but eventually
    system deteriorates and neither searching the drive or using Control Panel
    will work. You can keep restarting Explorer from Task Menu, and sometimes
    gain access to the Control Panel. With User Accounts tuned off, system works
    flawlessly.
