I need to replace Explorer XP.

Q: I need to replace Explorer XP.

I need to replace Explorer XP ExplorerXP has been my file browser of choice for years but it s acting up now It takes forever to start up I m looking into that but if my search for an answer is fruitless I want a free file browser that s just as good Here are the features I loved in ExplorerXP Mass renaming I could trim text from insert text into and do find replace on several filenames at once There are file renamers out there that do this but I don t do it that often to be using I need XP. to Explorer replace a program solely dedicated to that Maybe I can change that Groups You could quot bookmark quot a list of folders into a group that you could access as if it were the quot Folders quot pane of Windows You expand the group and click the folder you want This is the feature I want most Tabbed Browsing Like Firefox Internet Explorer you had just ONE window of ExplorerXP open and could have several folders open within it Just click the tabs to go to them Window View I couldn t find the right name for this You could have or more folders at the same time but have them all take up their own section of space in the ExplorerXP window There s probably more that I m blanking on right now but those are the broad strokes If someone has a recommendation of a file browser that at least has of the I need to replace Explorer XP. features mentioned above I d appreciate it BTW Speaking of file renaming is there a mass renaming app out there that can detect a Creative Zen Vision M ExplorerXP could never see it and I think that s because the Zen doesn t have a drive letter or something nbsp

Preferred Solution: I need to replace Explorer XP.

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

i just downloaded a windows 7 theme from deviantart,
however the start menu doesn't chance and i asked the author of it and he tells me i need to chance the explorer.exe with the one that came with his theme.

But i can't replace it because windows 7 isn't allowing me to do it because of lack of rights. wich i should have since im the only user on my computer and with fully administrative rights.

I also have taken ownership of the file, but i still cannot replace the original explorer.exe file

here is a link to the theme how it should look like: Link to the theme: Clearscreen Sharp for Windows7 by *K-Johnson on deviantART

I have a Gateway md2614u laptop os Win7 home 32bit. Right now I use FreeCommander instead of Windows Explorer. FreeCommander meets my needs except for 1 bug. Sometimes FreeCommander will lock up when I right click on a file or dir. Normally if I go into Windows Explorer and del the file or dir and do it over again or open the file in Windows Explorer, that fixes the problem. It is an annoying little bug. Is there any other freeware prog's like FreeCommander available that don 't have the bug in it?

Well Explorer) best (Replace peformance My tweak yet I've been My best peformance tweak yet (Replace Explorer) running Windows since Beta Beta was great Beta great RC great but since the final code there is most definitely some problems with the way Windows Explorer performs in the final code particularly on X systems Simple operations like cutting and pasting files can drastically slow down your machine and you can see from my specs I certainly do not run a piss willy machine My best peformance tweak yet (Replace Explorer) by any standards Regardless of any tweaks I've tried copying and pasting files copying files over the network and a quot simple quot thing like emptying the recycle bin can turn out to be a real time waster of note The problem is that copying and pasting files is actually a very simple process but somehow Microsoft engineers found a way of complicating this in the final code I work with massive graphics files ranging from mb to Gb in size and moving them around is a royal pain Simply trying to move x Gb files can see explorer snap up - Gb of memory and hold that memory ransom for up to minutes Then the actual cut and past operation involved can take a good minutes to complete and after that explorer still holds the memory ransom for an extended amount of time I've tested this on machines now all running Win x and they all show the same behaviour and I've noticed a lot of people complaining about it in Microsoft's technet forums only to be met with denialism Well the problem DOES indeed exist and I finally found a way out of it That is to completely stop using Windows Explorer I did a lot of reading prior to choosing an explorer replacement and after several hours of reading blogs and forums I decided to try DirectoryOpus and boy was I surprised or shall I say shocked I was able to move files with a total size of Gb from one drive to the next in a matter of approx minutes without as much as - mb of a memory footprint being used by this application and no after effect of memory being hogged How on earth is is that they can get it right but Microsoft cannot I then tried copying files over a network and the speed of that is about faster than copying them through Windows Explorer again how can they achieve this and Microsoft not I am thrilled I found this program it is a total lifesaver and I will personally never rely on Windows Explorer ever again can't believe it actually took me so long to find it I've been pulling my hair out for months since the RTM of Win The application is certainly not cheap but the cost for me is recouped with the time it saves me in one day I love Windows but there is most certainly some serious flaws in the way Microsoft deals with files in Windows Explorer on Win but I certainly do not have time waiting for a solution or a service pack Everything else functions at full speed and this OS running on an Intel SSD is so snappy it has to be seen to be believed which is why you can imagine my dismay at the speed of copying files Anyhow I had to share this info as I have had such a frustrating few months losing valuable work time waiting for files to copy and I KNOW there are many others out there who will jump at a way of speeding their file copying up I most certainly do not know or work for the manufacturer of Directory Opus but can only commend them on a sterling product and recommend this to others I would have killed to find a post like this in the last months of searching forums for a solution to the file copying problems

Hi folks,

Is it possible to replace the Explorer.exe in Windows Developer Preview without making Windows to shut down the new Explorer.exe?

The problem is: Windows is checking if the Explorer.exe is genuine, and if it finds out that it isn`t, Windows doesn`t want to run the new Explorer.exe and Windows doesn`t work anymore.

Hi all The laptop in question is a Toshiba Satellite A -S A few weeks ago it got dropped right on its adapter? Replace the replace the or jack power corner Replace the power jack or replace the adapter? with the power plug still in it the little metal plug of the AC adapter is now slightly crooked and the power jack has a little chip off the plastic part of it Anyway after this mishap it worked fine for another weeks and then suddenly this week it s refusing to power up Its battery has been shot for a while can t hold a charge and I ve been using it with the battery out Why the sudden refusal to boot I took the whole thing apart---minus the little chip the power jack looks totally fine and cosmetically sound Put the whole thing back together taking care to check that plugs were snug---still no power Stuck in the crappy battery booted just fine and then shut itself down after like minutes How likely is it that it s the power jack which is broken And why did it take this long to crap out if it IS broken A new one of those silly jacks costs over on eBay so I want to make sure that it s the jack before I just up and buy one Of course if it s the AC adapter that s broken that would cost even more Bah Input nbsp

A:Replace the power jack or replace the adapter?

AND/OR inside the case the the jack is soldered directly to the motherboard. Is also possible that
1) It's already cracked
2) If not yet, it's gonna crack

So look to see what connection looks like between power jack and motherboard, If you feel u wanna/can re-solder yourself or the typically price to redo the whole power thing seems to run $125 parts/labor/warranty if you take it somewhere. So how much is it all worth to you?

For some reason W7 has decided to change 'Copy and Replace' with 'Move and Replace' when picking a file up with the left mouse and dragging it to another folder where an old version of the file exists.

My Excel SS is in two places: My desktop and USB which I use for backup. I would simply open the folder on the USB pick up the file on the desktop with the left mouse and drag it to the USB folder. Then I would get the message 'Copy and Replace'.. But not anymore it's become 'Move and Replace'.

I know I can 'Copy and Replace' by holding down the Ctrl key but I dont want to.

It looks like there should be a simple answer

Hi and welcome to Techspot!!

Test the RAM sticks individually. One of them might be bad. You can use Memtest86 to try them out.

Also, try them in different memory slots. That sometimes helps.

I don`t think you should replace you hard drive just yet.

The fact that you`re getting lots of different stop messages, could be a symptom of faulty ram.

Download the memtest86+ programme from

If you don`t have a floppy drive, there is an iso version that you can burn to cd, and then boot from that.

Let the programme run for at least seven passes.

Without a Retail version of a Windows? XP Home? SP2 CD, there is absolutely nothing you can do.

After a series of unstable voltage problem, I couldn?t get into Windows normally (only got into the desktop once, yet shut down within a second following a warning message), so I loaded a Windows CD to the blue Windows Setup stage, I got a message saying ?File setupdd.sys could not be loaded. The error code is 4.? I restarted, I then got ?System 32\DRIVERS\pci.sys is damaged or missing.? in a dark screen. Is my disk still OK? Do I need to replace the HD? Thanks for the answer!

A:Do I need to replace the HD?

Maybe not. Lets focus on your "low voltage problem". Bad power can cause data corruption. Bad power can also permanently kill off hardware, such as a hard drive. We need to first establish if you solved your power issues, and how.

Did you replace the Power Supply? If so, please post manufacturer, model # and rated power output of your current PSU. If not, post the voltages as reported in BIOS.

I bought a new 400w psu with my new case. (my mother board had been flakey with lower watt models and wanted to be safe.) It runs great however the fan is a little loud and I'm looking to quiet it down. I was going to replace it with an Enermax 80mm since they're speed ajustable and quiet. I don't come close to using all the connectors provided. I run a CDR, DVD, HDD, floppy and two case fans off of it. Would it be safe to replace it with a potentially lower RPM model like the enermax?

A:Replace hdd with SDD

See the following video list for removal and replacement of the hard disk. ( hard drive assembly) What you will need is a SATA mobile 2.5" SSD to replace the legacy spinner hard wisk with. I highly recommend that you replace it by cloning the current disk to the new one.  That is the simplest method. See the sticky I created  in this section  of the forum for details on how that is done. An SSD of 256 GB or higher capacity is recommended as a replacement for the legacy hard disk currently installed. An SSD of 256 GB or higher capacity will allow for use of the Recovery media that you created with the HP Recovery Media Creator utility. See the following links at to see what will work. You can only use SATA, SATAII and SATAIII interface SSD disks. None of the other interface types are compatible with your notebook's systemboard and BIOS !!!

A:What should I replace?

For what it will cost you to upgrade it to play games, I would just suggest saving for a new computer.

First, you'll need to install a video card. If the model you have is in a micro-tower, it's not likely you'll be able to find a video card to fit.

Second, you would want to upgrade the processor. Even though it's apparently dual-core, it's still extremely slow.

Third, you would want to upgrade to 4GB of RAM.

And then to support it all, you'd likely need a new power supply.

So like I said...your best option would be to clean that up, sell it, and buy a new computer when you get the money.

I ask because I purchased a Lenovo laptop (Ideapad 580N) that came pre-installed with Windows 8 which is a nightmare. I recently upgraded to 8.1 because it supposedly had some Win 7 features, instead, it has been worse than Win 8. I've never removed one Win OS and replaced it with another and I have not purchased the Win 7 OS software yet. Is there anything I should know beforehand? HATE is a strong word, but it's the only word appropriate as to my feelings of Win 8 and if possible, I would like to get back to Win 7 asap. Thank you.

At random, XP will restart on its own. The computer was built less than 2 years ago and I'm not quite sure if it's a software or hardware issue. AMD 2600+, 1.9 ghz, 512mb RAM, windows XP, radeon 9600 graphics card.

I find the computer crashes when it's put under a heavy workload. For instance, I opened Spy Bot S&D to rule out any infections and within 30 seconds of running the application the computer restarted. This occured back to back just moments ago. Other times I am using WORD or browsing. This has been occuring for more than 4 months now.

I've ran a CPU application to max it out and again the computer restarts. It occurs everytime I run the program.

I also monitored my RAM while it performed and only 50% was being utilized.

How do I know it's the CPU and not the Motherboard or HD?


A:Do I need to replace my CPU?

Spobot Killed the Computer in the Den with the Fireplace Poker

This isn't "Clue" we're paying, you say?

Spybot uses 100% of the CPU. Your box could be entering thermal cutoff.
Use canned air to clean out the CPU/ heatsink, and just for good measure the rest of the insides as well.
Find out if your board has hardware monitoring and find what the critical zone temperatures are. You may have to install either the board manufacturers monitoring software or a utility like "Speedfan', available here at Techspot.

When I installed Win 8 Pro on an old laptop with Win 7 32-bit (dual boot configuration), I do not remember seeing an option for installing either the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows 8. My System shows I have 64-bit and I am having trouble locating video drivers for my 6 year old Toshiba Satellite laptop. I found people with a similar problem on an NVidia forum and they put together a 32-bit driver version that supposedly works. I did not mean to install the 64-bit version. Is there a way to do a reinstall, but this time select Win 8 32-bit? Is there an option for it If I just do a clean reinstall?

A:How to replace Win 8 Pro 64-bit with Win 8 Pro 32-bit?

Hello Stan, and welcome to Eight Forums.

The installation of either a 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 8 is dependent on if the installation media is 32-bit or 64-bit.

If you like, you can use the tutorial below to download a 32-bit Windows 8 ISO file from within any 32-bit Windows computer that you can use to create a bootable installation DVD or USB with.

Hope this helps,

Lately, I have been getting computer crashes where my monitor loses a signal from the computer, the gpu fan goes to 100%, and my computer becomes unresponsive (shutdown keyboard command doesn't work). This happens more and more often, to the point where it crashes before the computer can even post. However, when I open up the computer and jiggle around the connections, sometimes pulling out cords and re-plugging them in, this seems to completely fix the problem, until a couple days pass and the process repeats. I am certain I have a loose connection somewhere, but I'm not sure where. Should I replace the power supply or the motherboard? Or could something else be causing the issue? Thank you for any help!

I would start with swapping in a known good pw supply. While the case is open, get a bright light and give the mb a VERY close inspection. Look for any capacitors that look like the pics below.

Sounds as though it thinks it's needs starting from a network and that would make me wonder if it's been taken over remotely so when you do get it started, it might have a major malware infection. Tap the Delete, Function 2 or whichever other key you need to go into BIOS or Setup and seek out Boot Options or similar and make sure the order is set to boot from hard disk first.

Have a friend with a 9-month-old Dell Inspiron laptop who's had nothing but problems with Win XP. We've deleted the main partition and reinstalled XP, but problem (inability to maintain a modem connection) persists. It may be just a bad modem, and Dell is sending a new one, but he just doesn't like XP, and asked if it's possible to put Win 98 on the computer. I use Win 98, so am not familiar with XP, but know that XP uses NTFS instead of a FAT, and can't find anything that says whether or not it's possible to reformat the drive for a FAT-based Win 98 system. Is it, and if so, how (i.e., can I just boot to the command prompt, type "format c:", and hit enter)?

You can boot from the Vista DVD and run the Memory Test to see if it has any memory errors. From there you can decide if you need to replace the RAM. You could also reseat the RAM (take it out, put it back in making sure it is in good).

I would remove the fan then see if you can match the size with this or similar from Ebay :-

You will have to match the electrical connector as well so check how many pins are in the board socket.
You may have to use some force to disconnect the present fan's power cable from the GPU board.
It is a plug/socket connection isn't it ?

If it involves sending it off to a technician does anyone know the avg cost to replace the white clamp or complete pci express slot?

Hi all,

I've got a little bit of a dilemma here, I've got a 3.5year old Dell 8300 with the following specs:

3GHz P4
1GB Ram
X700 Pro
225W PSU (or thats what i suspect)
Ive got a standard PCI slot.

The issue is whether to replace whole thing and get Kentfield extreme with 8800GTX obviously spend will be around 1800 for base unit or to replace graphics card (and probably PSU) and wait for Yorkfield chips later in the year, which are expected to be cheaper to produce with more speed and lower power consumption. It's just id like to play some games even with minimal detail during the year (well except Crysis which would give my system processor failure just at the sight of the box).

What would people recommend and on graphics card front what replacement would offer best value for money given my system.

Many Thanks

Does anyone know if I can install XP home over XP pro without formatting my hard drive? If so will my applications still work or will I still have to reload everything?

Are there any precautions I need to take before doing so if it possible?

A:Replace XP Pro with Home

Greetings vinbarbato...Welcome to TSF.

My advice to you is to firstly back-up all your important data; then possibly, reformat the HDD, and proceed with a 'fresh' install of Xp Home.

Alternatively, you could install Xp Home as a second o/s and have a dual boot on your drive.

But before you go taking heed of what I have just said, could you please give us details of your HDD set up, in that do you have 2 independent drives or not? If so, what are the configurations of them?

Do you have one drive that has multiple partitions?

Do you have only one drive with one single partition?

Please post back with this information first.

This is my first post here on the forum. I've been using Norton AV for the past year or so. Due to the fact that my internet provider freely offers it as a bonus for being a customer, but I feel that it's just way to resources hungry. Taking up much needed disk space, not to mention it's high cup usage and annoying pop-up's.

Would anyone be able to offer me any alternatives, when replacing Norton's bloated software. To help give my machine it's much needed protection?


A:Looking to Replace Norton.

As far as Norton still using a lot resources and high CPU usage, not so true nowadays as older version might of been this way.
Using Norton Security not causing me any issues or using a lot of resources or CPU, see here. As far as cost of it might not want to spend 40-50 bucks to renew it as many other AV out there that are good and cheaper. Norton does get decent rating on detection, i have no issues with popups as can be turned off, this is probably due to yours is also expiring.

After being attacked by a rootkit, I realized that the winlogon.exe had been replaced with an infected copy. To repair this I reinstalled xp as an update to overwrite the file. Is there a quicker or easier way to replace winlogon.exe? Is there a command in the recovery console of the disk that will reinstall it?

A:Replace winlogon.exe

How do I get xp to replace mpr.dll with the undamaged copy from \i386?

I cannot delete \system32\mpr.dll as the system says it is always in use.

It lets me rename the thing but immediately produces a copy of it as mpr.dll so I can't put the good version into \system32 either.

Thank you for your help.

I have a P III 833 mhz Dell with 384 MB ram. My hard drive is starting to go out, and I want to replace it and transfer the data to the new HD. I have access to another P II 350mhz with 128 MB ram PC.

With this set up, how can I transfer the data from the HD that's in the Dell right now to a new HD? I don't have an available expansion slot to put the new HD into the case. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am mainly concerned about moving my data files from Outlook.



A:Replace HD in Desktop

if both pc's have then you can join together via usb.

i always used a network lan etc,

do you have a CD writer, you could write the files here - NOTE outlook does not like readonly files and i have not been able to run from CD - but you could copy to new pc

The outlook files all exist in a single files. so if you create an offline folder and copy all the files you want - you can then copy those and open on a different PC.

if its outlook express heres and article on backup to another pc

Hi, My mouse is 4 years plus old.
It has always been stable and no problems until the last few days..
the little rubber feet are worn....and lately I get no mouse sometimes on booting up.
I have Windows 2000, and have cleaned the mouse, troubleshooted the mouse, and all the drivers it says are up to date, and it says the mouse is not conflicted and this "device works properly" says all the good stuff.....but
Sometimes it is not there at the boot up, and I have to check the connections at the ports and manually reboot, etc.
Is there a way to see if I have a mouse takeover or virus in it, or is my mouse just too old now...any help would be appreciated...
It is a microsoft PS/2 mouse....Thanks

Hi there,

I wanted to know if there is a method I can use to use a specific font instead of the other.

Actually, I visit websites written in Arabic and Urdu language and for some reason, the words are broken on almost all websites and besides that the default font the Windows supports for arabic/urdu doesn't provide too much readability.

I have this font "Jameel Noori Nastaleeq" and I would like to force IE use this font instead of default arabic font. I hope you guys got my question.

Thank you for your time and I hope you'll reply on your earliest. Thank you, once again. Take care!

A:Replace this font in IE with other

You can chosse what fonts web pages used, but I don't think you can add a custom font to that list. It is possible that if the font is installed on your system, it will show in the list.

Change the colors and fonts used for webpages

If you change the Language script drop down to Arabic, there are several choices on my system. If you haven't already, you can experiment with those. Be aware that if you use the 2nd option on the link above to override the font from web pages, it will use that font for every web page. A Guy

A while ago I found a way to swap the windows notepad application with a new text editor, yet maintain the notepad name. I would like to do this again, but forget how.

Can someone please help me?

Thank you,


A:How do I replace Notepad?

Why you need the notepad name? I suppose you could simply rename the file notepad.exe to notepad2.exe and then rename the other text editor to notepad.exe, but I don't know why you would want to do that?

I have a 7 yr old HP Pavilion DV7 that still has Vista operating system.  PC still runs great, but since Vista is no longer supported, I was hoping to do just 1 upgrade to a slightly new operating system (Windows 7 or 8).  Firstly, is Windows 7 still supported by MS?  I thought this would be the cheapest way and I didnt want to spend a lot of money on an old machine.  Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

So my work pc is just driving me insane, now the thing locks up when trying to install a pCI wireless card, and bios updates seem to not help.

Was thinking of simply getting a new Mobo, but dont really know much about them, do they come with the processor, or do u buy that seperate and install it on, or use the one in old pc? and when looking for a mobo, what system info has to match up? or can I basically get any Mobo, and then the HD and cd-drives just get reinstalled. I just did a Clean reinstall of windows xp, and would have no trouble doing it over if I had to as all info is on CD-r's

A:Say I want to replace mobo, what do I need to know, look for in new one?

My first question would be have you had anyone on tsg help you with your wireless problem? This should be an issue we should be able to help you get it working.

Before i can help you any further. What can you tell me about your computer. Some system specs would greatly help. This will ensure that were both on the same page. If you can list your cpu, motherboard, pci/agp cards.

That would be great!

As for buying a new motherboard. Let's see if we can get this working and save you some cash till your next upgrade.

it would help to know 1. what program you are using and 2. where you are recording to.

in my experience, i found Dxtory to be the best and it would record to a second drive so i could utilize full write speed.
in most cases the capture software is reliant on cpu but Fraps might be the only one i know to be gpu intensive too
