Preferred Solution: Solved: Help: Pop Ups, System Freezes and explorer windows closing.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

you could try the following 2 things

1: click start > run > type sfc /scannow (including the space between the c and /
2: do a repair install of windows

The window in question is the Windows Explorer one. Everytime I click close, I get a message telling me that Windows Explorer stopped working or something. Anyway, it restarts on its own. This happens every time that I click close on a Windows Explorer windows. I have a feeling it's the new Windows Update that just finished installing. I've attached the Update History copy below.

My system (Windows XP Media Center Edition) has begun freezing up when I try to open up Windows Explorer. I can open other programs fine, like web browsers or applications. But when I try to open up Windows Explorer, nothing happens, my CPU usage skyrockets to 100%, and eventually I can't nothing on the computer responds. The only thing I am capable of doing at that point is opening up Task Manager to restart my system.

Sometimes, I get an error message saying that the Dr. Watson PostMortem program has encountered an error (which pops up after an unsuccessful try at opening Windows Explorer).

I'm not really sure what I should try to do at this point, short of reinstalling (which would be a totally last resort). I've already run things like ad-aware, spybot, and did a virus scan, and the problem is still there.

Any ideas? Thanks so much in advance.

Hey, I am having problems with my other computer suddenly closing both Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer applications, such as Control Panel, My Computer, etc...(Windows XP Home Edition)
When i click on either one, lets say the my computer icon, a pop up of the my computer folder thing flashes for a split second then disappears, the computer freezes for about a second, shows only the desktop, then a few seconds later the icons start appearing on my desktop and my start taskbar comes back. The screen is back to normal with no lag, but the my computer pop up is no longer there. The same thing happens with internet explorer, but it just happens alot quicker.
Does anyone know what could possibly be the problem of this, and maybe how to fix it? Thank You in advance.

I have a local network of 3 PCs hard-wired to a router and modem to cable internet. All 3 now run XP but one ran Vista until last week, when I gave up on it and installed a fresh copy of XP over it. I had set each PC to share their resources across the LAN, which worked fine until I overlaid Vista with XP, probably because the resources on the Vista system were named 'Vista C Drive', 'Vista Floppy Drive', etc, and are now named 'CAM XP C Drive', etc. Not only can I no longer access the 'CAM' system (running XP) from my other systems (via My Network Places under WIndows Explorer), but if I try to do so, Windows Explorer freezes the PC trying to do the access. I can't close W.E., and can only Shut Down via the Vulcan Nerve Pinch. Any ideas to get over this problem will be greatly appreciated.

Does the former Vista box show up to either of the others when you View Workgroup Computers?

I can't close W.E., and can only Shut Down via the Vulcan Nerve Pinch.

I like that - a new verb "to Spock" springs to mind for an emergency shutdown.

I'm using Win XP. I have two internal hard drives, one for operating use and the other for backups. The backup drive is D: Recently, trying to access one particular folder on the D drive will freeze Explorer, requiring the ctl-alt-del to shut it down. I can go into and manipulate files and folders in all the other folders on this drive with no problem. Clicking on the problem folder on the left hand window causes the freeze. Can't access anything in the folder. I've defragged, I've done Registry Mechanic, I've done CCleaner. I've deleted unnecessary stuff on the drive to ensure there is plenty of space available. Even at 50% free space, this folder is causing freezes. I'd appreciate any suggestions.

Running Windows Explorer on XP Home Edition. Since a few days ago, whenever I right click on a device, folder, or file, or whenever I click on the File or Edit menu when one of these entities is selected, the computer freezes, and I need to press Ctrl-Alt-Del and close the Explorer in order to continue. This problem does not occur within the open-file or save-file dialog of other applications, or even in Windows Explorer when browsing the "My Documents" section. Any help in solving this problem would be appreciated.

Every time i try to open a folder ( Mycomputer , MyDocuments , etc. ) explorer.exe freezes for about 5 min and then the folder opens. Sometimes it doesn't open at all and i have to restart it using Task Manager.
I had this problem before but somehow i fixed it. The folders won't open but after 1 folder has been opened the problem stops ( until i close all folders , then i have to wait 5min again ).

I tried using Desktop Maestro , MalwareBytes , AVG scan and defragmenting the disks... nothing seems to work.

The first time i had this problem i did scans and then i deleted some files to make some space , restarted my PC , restarted explorer.exe , deactivated some programs on startup and then the problem was fixed but i don't know which of these did it.
Also i rarely Shut Down my PC , mostly put it on Sleep, could that cause problems?

A:Solved: Windows explorer runs extremely slow or freezes

You have an infected computer my friend. http://free.avg.com/us-en/homepage

Install that(hopefully you're able to) and if successful, update definitions if it doesn't do it automatically and do a scan on it.

More than likely it sounds like your reg files are screwed, so may I suggest a backup of files and drivers; reformat.

OR

If you have a retail copy of the current version of windows you are using, go ahead and boot off the disc and get to the recovery console.

Once in command prompt, do a fixboot, then chkdsk /r function.

PS

Definitely get AVG, it's the best freeware anti virus software out there known to man of this current moment.

AND

Definitely do a scan with it!

Hope this helps!

Hi
I have recently had a lot of pc problems with processes using 100% cpu and runtime errors. I took my pc to my local repair shop and it ended up that they completely wiped my pc and reinstalled windows xp home.
I use the mozy online backup service so thankfully most of my files are safe and I have restored them.

Everytime I try to go into "my pictures" where I store all my photographs, I get the error message "To help protect your computer, windows have closed this program. Name: Windows explorer"

Is there anything I can do to prevent this happening?

Thanks

Ian

Hello - Last Tuesday I got a quot Windows Security quot virus and I thought I removed it by using the steps from bleepingcomputer com The real issue began on Monday when I received a quot Generic Host Win quot error I am not sure if the two are related After this my computer starting behaving very strangely I sometimes have trouble opening new internet explorer windows and when I finally do get one open it can sometimes Windows Explorer not is closing refuse to Windows Explorer is not closing close Yesterday I received a blue screen error and the message that quot your computer has recovered from a serious error quot The only changes I made to my computer after eliminating the virus was downloading the update for AVG Free Antivirus program Since I have tried to restore my computer to an earlier time and I have run scans with quot Malware Bytes quot a number of times The first time the program found about issues that I promptly cleaned off my system Since I have run the program a few times but no issues were returned Is there something I need to do to Malware Bytes to detect whatever is messing with my computer I thought restoring and running the scans fixed the error but later that day I received another Win error The strange thing is my computer seems to behaving normally today I am wondering if anyone can offer some advice as to what to do next here Thank you in advance for your assistance Mike

A:Windows Explorer is not closing

I mentioned that the error has not popped up today; but I just got another one!

Again, thanks for your help.

Hi.

My problem is that when I leave my computer on and go away for a while that it goes to the welcome screen (not the problem). After I log back on windows explorer usually closes down. So the taskbar and all my icons are gone. It also happens during games sometimes.

Can someone help?

Also, My firefox keeps clearing my bookmarks and personal settings.Is there a way to fix that?

Thanks,
Kaku

For your Firefox problem, try the following.
Start> Mozilla Firefox> Mozilla Firefox(Safe Mode). This starts Firefox without
any extensions and the default theme. If this solves the problem, then it is an
extension or theme effecting Firefox. If that doesn't help, create a new profile.
Your profile may have become corrupt.

Make sure Norton is updated, and then run the SP3 Updater. I have never heard that Norton caused issues with SP3 upgrades. Can you point to a source that stated as such?

Thanks for your help.
 

A:Solved: Need help: Explorer and Outlook are closing automatically

You should check for Viruses and spyware that may be causing this first. But are you doing anything else (running other programs, trying to open other applications) when this happens? Did you recently make any changes (updates, Registry clean up, Internet options) to computer settings? Or did you install any software recently? And when did it start doing this?

Hi, I've been having this problem for a while now. I don't know when it started/what caused it tohugh

When I double click mp3-files Winamp doesn't react. However, the single window freezes. I can open and use another window while the other is frozen, which means explorer.exe doesn't crash totally...

This is not true for .avi files or .doc files though. I seriously am at a loss here.

It might have something to do with the problems I've been having with Opera for a long time. Every 3 minutes or so the browser freezes for 5-10 seconds and then goes back to function normally. But it also has total crashes regularly. I've tried reinstalling Opera (deleting it and then doing a new install) but somehow the application setup is still there when I've reinstalled it (favourites, personal bar, etc.)

A:[SOLVED] Windows Explorer shell freezes when double clicking files

Hi Norwegian and welcome to TSF !

Do you have that problem with all files you double-click or only with certain file types ? If it's only with mp3-files then uninstall/reinstall winamp.

Do you have SP2 and all the latest critical updates from Windows update ?

Are there any process in the task manager (press ctrl+alt+del and go to the processes tab) that are taking some cpu usage when this happens ?

Go to the device manager : start => run => devmgmt.msc. Check "show hidden devices" in the view tab and tell us whether there's any device with a warning sign next to its name.

Run the event viewer : start => run => eventvwr.msc. Search the different sections for errors and report about what you find.

How much free space do you have on your drives ? Have you defragmented them recently ? Go to start => Run and type chkdsk x: /F /R (replace x with the drive's volume letter), answer no when it asks to unmount the volume then yes to scan the drive at startup and reboot the computer. Do this for all your local drives.

What are your computer specs ? See the link in my sig about posting system specs. Enter the BIOS at startup (repeatedly press del or search for a message telling you which key to press to enter setup) and search for a harware monitor or pc health screen. Report what your cpu temp, fan speed and voltages are.

Has anyone encountered a situation where an MPEG file will abruptly close a Windows Explorer window. The file will do this both over my network or while trying to access it from a CD on one of my computers. The PC that has the file on it has no problem with keeping it up on a Windows Explorer Window, or running it with a media program. Both computers are running the same version of Windows XP Professional. As soon as the folder is accessed over the network, Windows Explorer closes on the computer. The same situation occurs when the MPEG file is accessed by CD. The file has been scanned for viruses with multiple checkers, and seems fine. The MPEG file also plays fine in a portable DVD player. Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance!
 

A:Windows Explorer abruptly closing

Welcome to TSG....

The MPEG file if it has a corruption in it it might play ok in a player but it might crash in a Windows environment. Have you tried this file on another computer that is either on the network and also off the network?

Can you open the MPEG file with an editor program to check to see if it is a good file? Try copying it from the CD-R or DVD to the hard drive to a special directory you have set up. If it does not copy then the file is no good.

A:Explorer Windows Auto Closing

It's a bit tedious as a troubleshooting method, but often the only effective way to sort such things out.

Try "clean booting":

Run msconfig and select the "Services" tab. Check "Hide Microsoft Services" and then disable the rest. Also uncheck "load startup group" on the general page.

See this link for detailed information:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

Now restart and test the issue at hand

If no problems, run msconfig and recheck half the disabled items on the Services tab. Test again. If the problem recurs, UNcheck half the items you just checked to narrow down the culprit.

If the problem didn't occur, check the other half, so all the Services are enabled -- proceed to do this on the startup tab as well.

Get the idea? You want to isolate the problem to a specific startup if possible.

Note: if you already have items unchecked under msconfig > startups and are in “selective” startup mode – you should note what these are before beginning. They will need to be de-selected again.

A:Windows Explorer Closing and Restarting

Hi -

The appcrash you listed had a 0xc0000005 exception - a memory access violation. The problem here is more than likely old and new drivers clashing - then you crash.

Your Windows Explorer executable file has a timestamp of 4907deda = Tue Oct 28 23:56:10 2008 and the MS kernel driver t/s is 4549bd80 = Thu Nov 02 05:42:24 2006.

The problem here is that your system is not updated with Vista SP1.

The installation of SP1 must be the top priority. Have you ever tried to install it? Has it shown in Windows Updates?

Regards. . .

Hello All!
For some reason today my computer likes to close the internet browsers on it's own. I use IE- the version used in 2004. When i've been playing games, doing research, anything the windows close- all of them. And then a window opens to say i've chosen to end the unresponsive program and asking me to send an error report. I never chose to close the program, it happens on its own. Do I have too many things running at once or any other ideas? Thank you much :0)

A:Windows Explorer 'closing down to protect your computer'...

Windows XP explorer is more buggy then later versions of Windows OS explorer it does crash more often run Sfc /scannow command to repair any damage Windows system files. Also damage media file can cause this issue when Windows try to render the thumbnail for the damage media file Windows Explorer may froze or close disable viewing thumbnails to see problem will get resolves if it does then you will need to find out which media file is damage.
Open Control Panel. (Classic View)
Click on the System icon.
Click on the advanced system settings link.
Under Performance, click on the Settings button.
In the Visual Effects tab, uncheck "Show thumbnails instead of icons."
When the thumbnail view is enabled in Windows Explorer, it will generate thumbnails for your video files. If something goes wrong during this process, then Explorer may crash. Causes of failures can be corrupt media  files or buggy codec. Remove third party codec packs. Automatically diagnose and fix Internet Explorer or Windows applications when it freezes or stops responding caused by codecs when playing video files. Download Microsoft Fix it utility.
Buggy program extension can also make Windows Explorer crash or froze uninstall programs you installed before this issue started.

Hey people again, this time the problem lies with my PC at home! Whenever I'm using Windows Explorer and just going through my Hard Drive, after a few mins i get the "windows explorer has encountered a problem" message and it closes the explorer window, the whole screen goes blue for a second and then the desktop comes back and the systray looks as if it's loading the icons again in the bottom right! I installed ZoneAlarm a couple of weeks ago and I don't know whether that's causing a problem/conflict but I've had to uninstall MSN because it just keeps logging out and logging in!

HELP!!

A:Windows Explorer Closing Error - Constantly

Set a restore point and back up any important data (you do this already right ). The we can try using the system file checker (ie sfc command). This will require your Windows CD and afterwards you will need to reinstall all your microsoft updates.

To do this simply go to the Run box on the Start Menu and type in:

sfc /scannow

This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem.

As I said, make sure you back up and set a restore point.

Let me know how you go.

Just in the last week or so, when I click on a linked page off of a page, it will open the link for 5 seconds, then POOF! it closes and I am back to the original page.

This is happening on almost every site I go to. I'm thinking it might be a setting under Internet Options | Tools, but can't figure it out.

I've done massive searching for something similar, but can't find anything.

Any ideas? I don't have Macromedia Flash installed, and possibly some of those "other little programs" that like to load themselves....could it be something like that?

I can provide links if needed, but I don't have this log file everyone seems to be using.

I'm running XP PRO SP2....and I run AdAware SE, AVG and Microsoft AntiSpyware.....

Thanks from a new poster!

If I interpret this correctly, I think there is a problem with the AUDIODEV.DLL but I have no idea how to fix this. Please tell me if I'm on the right track and how I might proceed. Thanks

A:Windows Explorer repeatedly closing and restarting

audiodev.dll is an unwanted file that is known to cause problems. Though it's a microsoft stuff, I still suggest you to scan for malware.

Perform a full system scan using: Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware download and some other good anti virus software as well.

If this doesn't solve the problem, follow this guide: Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

I already tried turning off DEP, but I still get the error message and the same thing happens. I have tried the drive on another computer and it works fine.

The error message saysInternet explorer has stopped workingA problem has caused internet explorer to close and so on.I just got this computer yesterday. There wasn't a problem with internet explorer until I installed firefox, then I unstalled it. I'm sure firefox isn't the problem. I installed other software as well. What should I do?p.s. I scanned the computer using ad aware, and a-squared and avast antivirus!

A:Internet Explorer Keeps Closing In Windows Vista!

Internet Explorer will stop working almost all the time cause a conflict with a Plugin or Active X...Go to "MSconfig".Click on Start > Type in "Start Search" MSconfig" (no quotes) and hit Enter...Go to the Startup tab and look for "OmniPage" and uncheck it...Go to internet options...Start > Control panel > Left side of window click on classic view > Internet options.In "General" tab, and look for browsing history and click on "delete..." Delete all...Go to "Programs" tab and click on "Manage Add-ons". Add-ons are active-x controls that change the way Internet Explorer is used. These can be toolbars, plug-ins, and other code that can interfere with the operation of IE. Select any suspicious add-on names from the name list and select disable to prevent the add-on code from opening when IE is opened.Finally go click the "Advanced" tab. Remove the checkmark from "Enable third-party browser extensions (requires restart)", editAlso unchek "Enable memory protection to help mitigate online attacks".Restart and the error should not come back.These errors are probably caused by browser extensions that were added through spyware or adware.Maybe a look in here, and posting your log will help if this didn't.Hope it helps Mav

Scroll down the page to Parasitic , Download Ad-Aware SE , Spy Bot Search and Destroy , Spy Ware Blaster . Setup and update according to the tutourials. Go to Panda Active Scan or other online virus scanner and run a scan . If you do not have an anti virus program aboard go to Grisoft AVG and download the personal free edition .

This system had a pretty bad virus (would not even fully boot into Windows). So to save time, I formatted the drive and installed Windows XP Home. After it finished installing, when it first booted up fully, after 10 seconds, it froze. Could not move the cursor or anything.

Tried rebooting, same thing. I tested the hard drive, which is a WD 40GB drive, with Seatools, and it passed both the short test and the extended test. I am now testing the RAM with memtest86+. I am at 64% into the first pass, and there are no errors so far. It's been running for 50 min.

Any ideas as to why it would be freezing? It wasn't just a day ago when we were just dealing with the virus.

A:Windows explorer hangs when closing Photo Gallery

Update:
Same now happened in the Windows Live Gallery: I was previewing photos and rotating some of them, so first it refused to rotate a couple suggesting they were opened by another program (they weren't) and then as I moved to another image, it showed "Saving..." and just hung there. Closing didn't help (and no messages that it was not responding). I used Task Manager to kill the process - the Live Gallery disappeared from the desktop but remained in the Task Manager processes. I was able to open another instance of Live Gallery and do some operations before it hung again. After killing it with Task Manager again, I had two processes in the Task Manager and none on the desktop. I closed all programs and tried logging off but it didn't log me off, the mouse was moving though. After restart, it turns out some programs didn't actually close (Firefox offered to recover a crashed session).

No error messages in Event viewer

I'll run checkdisk later as it is taking ages, but would appreciate suggestions. Thanks
Vit

Greetings everyone There is a quite strange problem with my World of Warcraft that didn't occured before a certain windows reinstallation The problem is Explorer Warcraft World keeps its Windows and in of closing folder that my WoW keeps closing randomly without any error message and its folder does the same I tried out lots of things which worked temporarily but somehow this problem persists further and further I checked my computer with several antiviruses and antispywares with no succes they found nothing When this problem began WoW closed as if i had shut it down in Task Manager The game didn't save the changes i made while i was playing I first shut all windows services and it seemed to be working after a week the problem appeared again I said to World of Warcraft and its folder in Windows Explorer keeps closing myself that it must be a process killer so i renamed the Wow exe file to asd exe and World of Warcraft and its folder in Windows Explorer keeps closing the problem seemed World of Warcraft and its folder in Windows Explorer keeps closing to have been solved i didn't have any problem with WoW for two weeks but the problem occured again with a new thing Not only does WoW close itself but every single folder named quot World of Warcraft quot and i noticed that if there are other words beside quot World of Warcraft quot let's suppose quot World of Warcraft Trial quot the folder won't close And it happens to Windows Explorer not IE only If i open the quot World of Warcraft quot folder with Total Commander TCMD won't close And now WoW saves the changes when it closes as if i used alt f to close it I don't think it is a hardware related issue My memory cards are okay i checked them with memtest and no problems were found it can't be a videocard issue because other games don't close it can't be a motherboard issue because other programs should close if it was the case Maybe a HDD issue but i don't think a damaged hardware causes problem to only one program i bet it is an infection because i found some interesting processes in my system for example quot netchk exe quot when i launched it this program said the following quot Unable to kill process Wow exe quot This process is installed alongside the game quot Falcon quot i never heard of this game but what the hell was this nethck exe looking for in my system if a never installed this game So my process killer theory was right for a time because this thing didn't manage to close WoW because WoW was renamed to quot asd exe quot at that time i found also the process quot PSKILL EXE quot which is also a process killer Anyway i've created a video about these problems Here is the link http sizostore extra hu - - AVI and here is a Hijack This log Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v Scan saved at on Platform Windows XP SP WinNT MSIE Internet Explorer v SP Boot mode Normal Running processes C WINDOWS System smss exe C WINDOWS system winlogon exe C WINDOWS system services exe C WINDOWS system lsass exe C WINDOWS system svchost exe C WINDOWS System svchost exe C WINDOWS system ZoneLabs vsmon exe C Program Files Alwil Software Avast aswUpdSv exe C Program Files Lavasoft Ad-Aware AAWService exe C Program Files Alwil Software Avast ashServ exe C WINDOWS Explorer EXE C Program Files Zone Labs ZoneAlarm zlclient exe C Program Files Lavasoft Ad-Aware AAWTray exe C PROGRA ALWILS Avast ashDisp exe C WINDOWS system ctfmon exe C Program Files Windows Live Messenger msnmsgr exe C WINDOWS system spoolsv exe C Program Files Java jre bin jqs exe C Program Files Alwil Software Avast ashMaiSv exe C Program Files Alwil Software Avast ashWebSv exe C Program Files Windows Live Contacts wlcomm exe C WINDOWS system wuauclt exe C Program Files Mozilla Firefox firefox exe C WINDOWS System svchost exe C Program Files Trend Micro HijackThis HijackThis exe O - BHO AcroIEHelperStub - DF C-E AD- -A -FA C EBDC - C Program Files Common Files Adobe Acrobat ActiveX AcroIEHelperShim dll O - BHO Windows Live Sign-in ...

A:World of Warcraft and its folder in Windows Explorer keeps closing

I also noticed that when WoW closes itself a process named "wscript.exe" appears. after WoW is closed, it vanishes. not always does it appear, but at most of the cases it does

no matter what I configure in Autoplay ...
- whenever I say "safely remove mass storage" (in my case it's a SD Card) the explorer window is closed
- it only stays open when I select another drive before "safe removal"
- it also stays open when I just pull the SD Card (unsafe remove)

the drive itself is a combined mass storage reader built into the Desktop PC and ist drive letters are always shown in the explorer

Is there a regkey to tell Windows to just let it open ?

A:inhibt windows explorer from closing when SD card removed

In its infinite wisdom Windows assumes the user is finished using File Explorer [renamed from Windows Explorer in Win7] and to save resources closes that window. It really doesn't bother me as I usually have two or more instances of File Explorer running anyway [for access to External USB HDDs].

A:Windows Explorer closing down whenever I open any files in My Document

Hi all,

I thought I would follow up with my findings and solution to my Windows Explorer nightmare as I am quite pleased with myself for persevering and fixing it. It was right under my nose all along but it was just knowing how to go about it.

Basically, "Event Viewer" gave me all the information I needed. In the event tree I clicked on "Windows" then "Applications" which gave a list of apps with either a blue info icon to the left of the information, an exclamation mark in red for error or a yellow exclamation mark for warning. There were plenty of red error icons which I hoped would be logs of Windows Explorer closing down, and sure enough they were. On following the "Failing Application Path" c:\program files\ASUSWSShellExt64.dll I found the highlighted shell extension, Which is basically Asus Web Storage. I promptly uninstalled the program and have had no crashes whatsoever, yee haaaaa!

Hope this helps someone else someday as it almost blew my brains out

Martin.

I have autoplay completely disabled.
I realize that Windows Explorer (WE) will open if a new dvd, usb drive, etc is connected/inserted.

But 'I open' all of the WE windows I use but "Win7 64 will close that WE window if the thing is removed, even when it did NOT create/open it" !!

Anyone know how to disable this 'automatic' CLOSING of WE by Win 7??

Thanks for any help!! , this is a pain (and infinitely stupid on Win7's part) !!

Unless the new hardware you fitted is almost identical to the old, which I doubt, you should do a clean install of Windows. The main reason is the drivers from the old stuff are still around and are messing things up.

Hi there all,

I have been experiencing a problem on my laptop PC. I am attempting to browse and then upload files to my server for a web site but when I browse it seems a certain folder on images it freezes the application. I have tried everything including a "sfc /scannnow"; doing a Disk Scan and scanning a removing spyware.

Could this be software related or maybe a memory leak perhaps. Any solutions or idea would be appreciated.

thanks all.

A:Explorer.exe Freezes When I Browse File System

Hello rshillman

Explorer could be having a problem generating the previews (thumbnails) of the images. An image might be corrupted, or it might just be explorer`s fault.

Try turning off thumbnails. This means you will have no previews in any of your folders, but try it and see if it fixes the problem. you can always reverse this later if you want to by rechecking the box.

The thumbs.db file is generated by the Windows operating system. It is a database file containing the small images displayed when you view a folder in "thumbnail" view (as opposed to tile, icon, list, or detail view). No harm is done by deleting thumbs.db files.

To disable storing the miniatures in a "thumbs.db" file for each folder.....

Click the Start button
Select Control Panel
Select Folder Options
Click the View tab
Check "Do not cache thumbnails"
Click the OK button

Then search on all your harddrives including subdirectories for "thumbs.db" you will receive a complete list of them. Highlight all the "thumbs.db" files and delete them.

Make sure that you have enough free space for the SR
Then report back.

For both 7 and Vista

Pay attention to the question about required space

Turn off the SR for that drive then reboot, and turn on. It may work

Disable the Anti Virus for test purposes.

the following happens:
there is a 3 second pause
then taskbar dissapears
the wallpaper dissapears
the desktop items dissapear
the taskbar reappears
the desktop items reappear
(sometimes the wallpaper reappears, and sometimes a
white screen appears instead, stating that active desktop has
been turned off because windows has experienced an error. I then turn on
active desktop).
when the taskbar reappears, its missing most of the memory resident program icons, such as my firewall.)

Rebooting the system ofcourse did not help.

I'd start with the basics. Run disk cleanup and check all of the boxes there. Then defrag the HD. You can also run AdAware and SpyBot in safemode, they will find more stuff. Once the computer is squeaky clean you will have a better chance of problem solving.

This happens everytime I try to close EI7. It also happened when I tried to download IE7 installation exe from Microsoft's page.

I have Norton 360 antivirus and there does not seem to be a virus in my computer.

I have tried uninstalling IE7 and reinstalling it (I dled from another computer and put it on USB key)

What else can I do?

Click Tools >> Manage Add Ons and disable all add ons and see if the problem persists. If this solves the problem you just need to add them back one at a time to determine which one is causing the problem. Good luck.

A:freezes when closing tabs

First of all, you are running HijackThis out of a temporary directory. Please download the HijackThis below which will extract into its own directory, or you wish please create a folder in My Documents and call it Hijack (or something similar). Then extract HijackThis into the folder you have created and run it from there. The reason for this is that Hijackthis cannot create backup files whilst it is being run from a temporary folder.

When you have done this, then make sure all browsers and windows are closed except for HijackThis and please wait for a HijackThis expert to assist you in doing any repair work necessary, they are the people with the little Gold Shield next to their name.Click to expand...

To download HJTsetup.exe To Download HijackThis go to the following: http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/forum/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=item5
Filename = 1137518044HJTsetup.exe

Save the file to your desktop.
Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\HijackThis.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialog boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialog.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialog box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit Edit then Select All then click Edit and then click Copy doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply. DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

A security expert should take a look at your log - please be patient.

Hey Guys,

Well I have a iPod so I have iTunes but heres my problem when i click the X to close the program it freezes on me and the only way to get it to close is to go to Task Manager then process's and find itune.exe, i have tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it and nothing has helped and i'm not finding anything on google that fixes my problems either. So if anyone knows how to fix it can you help me out please.
Thanks

A:Itunes freezes when closing.

What antivirus do you use? Is it by any chance ESET NOD32?

iTunes has also been known to conflict with Bonjour in both Windows 7 and Vista. Scroll down to the bottom of the following article for instructions on how to temporarily turn off the service. Then try closing iTunes and see if it's closes properly.

Whenever I click in any file/shortcut on system programs under explorer.exe, (e.g. The desktop, Start Menu, Windows Explorer) even other file explorers(Total commander)
it hangs up and I have to restart the process in taskmanager!
the last thing i remembered added in the context menu was a bat file in "send to" folder(not without my consent so not malware issue).
The bat file's function was to move files in a folder within the folder it was originally on.
ex.
D:/Folder/filename.jpg
I right click on it>send to>new folder.bat
new location
D:/Folder/filename/filename.jpg

but I found it useless so i went to 'send to' folder to delete it.

And now Right click stopped working!

A:[SOLVED] Right Click Freezes explorer.exe

Have you tried to do a system restore to a point before you added the new folder? System restore doesn't always work for me for reasons unknown but you might want to try.

Apologies for my poor english.

I've been having some BSOD and freezing issues starting somewhere around this month. There are some random older .dmp files here too but the ones that are the real problem are the ones created this month.

As i said in the title, these crashes usually happen after playing games. Most of the time it's a freeze, but sometimes it's a BSOD.

I have not made any hardware changes to my computer recently and it has been working fine before this.

Also, when the freezes happen my screen often looks corrupted with weird lines going horizontally across plus the current sounds going in a really fast loop.

Again, sorry for my poor formatting and english.

A:Random crashes, freezes, applications closing

If possible please tell us what the computer shops did to repair your system in bullit points.

Secondly please give us your full hardware profile in bullet points as well. It makes it much easier this way. Yes, we know you have a 250 psu but we'd like the brand name. Also video card, etc. How old is this system?

Lastly...

How to find and post your Minidump Files:

My Computer > C Drive > Windows Folder > Minidump Folder > Minidump Files.

It is these files that we need (not the folder). Attach to your next post the five most recent dumps. Notice the Manage Attachments button at the bottom when you go to post the next time. You can Zip up to five files per Zip; if you only have one or two you don?t need to zip them, just attach as is. Please do us a favor and don?t Zip each one individually.

P.S. 32-bit Operating Systems cannot recognize or utilize 4 gigs of RAM. 3.5 is the max.

I have a friend that asked me to look at one of their computers. They have a small network (around 5 computers) hooked up to a server. One of the computers has a issue where explorer.exe freezes and they can't open word or excel documents. After going through and trouble shooting as much as I could I found out that the computer works fine if I unplug the network cable prior to booting it up. I did a virus scan and well as a spybot scan. I made sure the xp and office 2007 updates where installed. Prior to me looking at it non of the office 2007 updates were installed. The system has a duel core processor with 2 gigs of ram with Xp pro SP3. The video card is on the motherboard. All 5 of the computers are the same build but this one has the issues. All of the others run fine. Any thoughts?
