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.)

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.

A:explorer crashes on closing window

try this, click on start and then run and type in "sfc /scannow".

This should take some time and afterwards, reboot the computer. Then see if this fixes the issue. If not, I recommend performing a windows repair on your computer.

Whenever I use the preview pane in Windows Explorer to view the contents of, say, a .reg file, .txt doc, or .ini file, it crashes with "Preview Handler Surrogate Host has stopped working". I click the "Close the program" option, which is followed by an Application Error: "Exception EAccessViolation in module ShellEh428.dll" etc. I close that as well. Then the preview pane works without having to close and reopen the Explorer window. In fact, if I do close and reopen it, it happens all over again.

It's not that big an inconvenience since the Explorer window itself doesn't actually crash, but it'd sure be nice to find out why this is happening and if it can be prevented.

A:Explorer Preview Pane crashes then works after closing error message.

Sounds like your dll file may be corrubted, you can try downloading that dll and replacing the one on your pc and see if that resolves your problem.

HP Pavilion, Windows 32-bit Vista. I've been having this problem at work now for the past few weeks. We have free wi-fi there, and at times when I would close out of the internet, it would close, and then I would get the blue screen. It would then ask to restart windows normally, which I would do, and it would work fine. Lately, its been doing this more often, and now its doing it at my other job and home also. All are wi-fi access if that matters. I always get the pop up box that says windows was shut down and that microsoft would alert me to a solution. It doesn't happen with any other program.
Any suggestions?
Thanks!

When I opened multiple links and then close the last link every thing shuts down. I end up having to sign in to Yahoo and start all over, and it happens every time. I also get a message when I start my Yahoo that IE has a problem and must close, but it doesn't close.....nothing happens except for the message. Is there an option somewhere that I can select that allows multiple windows to stay open when I close just one?

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.

If you have and codec packages installed, uninstall them as a test. See if the problem stops.

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

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.

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 &#8220;selective&#8221; startup mode &#8211; you should note what these are before beginning. They will need to be de-selected again.

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 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. . .

A:Windows Explorer crashes, no message, then everything crashes randomly

the dump point to wininit.exe, the windows startup process, the crash was caused by the termination of a critical system thread or process which means that somehowwinint.exe was terminated and crashed your computer, all we have to do now is work out why and how the process was terminated, if it didn't happen untill you installed the graphics card it could be thaat it is doing something that is affecting wininit.exe

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!

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

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.

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.

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

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) !!

A:How to stop Windows Explorer closing for removable Disks!

Unfortunately there is no feature built into windows 7 that can stop this from happening, there could be a 3rd party application somewhere. I personally think there was a-lot of stupidity on Microsoft side when they built windows explorer

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 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

This happened recently after my sister downloaded something from the internet, and when I opened the folder to transfer it to her flash drive, a notification popped up telling me that, "Windows Explorer has crashed," and then it restarts (not the computer, just explorer. It sort of "refreshes" the desktop), then loads, and then crashes again.

I can still use my laptop normally from adjacent accounts, and when I tried deleting the file (the source of all of this, I'm assuming) it says that I need the permission of my main account, even though this account that I am currently using is also and administrator.

Can someone give me a little help? If there is none to be found I can use this side account for a while until something can be done, but it is incredibly inconvenient.

I am using Windows 7 currently.

drives. We see this issue over the VPN which would indicate this issue is somewhat related to network latency and Windows Explorer trying to enumerate and display all pertinent info such as free/used disk space.

Hi all,

I really hope someone can help me out here, as this is my work box, and it will take me about a week to get everything re-installed and configured if I have to format :-(

The problem is that if I try to open windows explorer or internet explorer, they immediately crash. I suspect that this is due to spyware / virus.

I have since upgraded from service pack 2 - 3 and run scans with McAfee, Avast and SpyHunter3. Can't find anything ...
All open / save dialog boxes work fine though ... which is luckily the only way i can work now ... through firefox

Windows Explorer

Hi there.
I have the following most frustrating problem with my windows ME system:
Shortly after start-up my windows explorer crashes, my task bar freezes, and I have to use the task
manager to restart it. It then crashes again a few minutes later.
My internet explorer opens very slowly and then crashes quite quickly - I've had to switch to Netscape.
Similarly browsing my hard-disk causes a crash. Netscape isn't that reliable either - but that might not be
related.
I had gator-ware and recently uninstalled it - but I wonder if it might have damaged my system causing these
problems..
I've run a check for bots/modifications using spybot - and effected all of the changes it recommended
but I still have the same problems.
Any suggestions would be most helpful
Thanks

Internet Explorer 8 has started crashing for no apparent reason, always after I try to close a tab. I get the "Internet Explorer has stopped working" message, and I can either wait and choose "close program" or just cancel it. Either way, the tab closes and IE continues to work. This always seems to happen at random times, and I can't find any similarities between the pages that cause these crashes. Any idea what could be causing this? I would switch to Firefox, but there are certain aspects to IE that I'm very reluctant to give up, so I'd only want to do that as a last resort.

A:Firefox 19.0.2 Crashes Immediately After Closing

Hi bej,

While researching, I came across various instances where 'similar crashes' are reported with 'Mozilla Firefox version 19.0.2'; appears to be a known issue.

You may try the troubleshooting steps listed in this tutorial to see if that helps: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb...t-and-get-help

If the issue persists, you may try moving back to install an older version of 'Firefox' to and check results.
Hope this helps.

When I try to close Word 2002 after printing a document, I get the message "Microsoft Word has encountered a problem and needs to close." If I choose to recover my work, Word reopens with a blank document like I had simply clicked on the shortcut (the title bar shows the file name as Document1). This does not happen if I open a file to read it or make changes without printing, but it happens every time after printing. I am thinking that there is an incompatibility between Word and my printer's software. The printer is an HP Deskjet F4580, and I have the bare minimum software install (just the drivers and software needed to use all of the printer's functions). The printer is connected through USB, and the computer is running Windows XP Home Edition SP3 and is fully updated. I would appreciate any assistance with this problem.

A:Word 2002 crashes while closing

Hi lti ,

Please try to perform two basic steps below if you don't mind. We will uninstal and reinstall your printer and then use your Microsoft Office CD.

a.1)Uninstall Microsoft Office
XP >>
Please go to start and open Control Panel. Double click ADD/Remove Programs and uninstall the Microsoft Office program.

Vista/Win7 >>

Please go to start and open Control Panel. Double click Programs then under Programs Feature click Uninstall Program and look for the Microsoft program then uninstall it.

Or

a.2)Insert Microsoft Office and run the program then check if that has an option for REPAIR

Please restart the computer to make sure the changes that was done will take effect fully.

b.) Printer

Insert the CD driver of your Printer

XP >>
Please click START button then click RUN. Type "devmgmt.msc" and press Enter key on your keyboard.
Click the + to the left of Ports and right click Printer then click Properties click Driver tab then Uninstall driver
Right click Ports/Printer then click Properties click Driver tab then click Install/Update Driver
Follow the wizard and locate the CD drive to install the driver

Vista/Wn7 >>
Please click START then click CONTROL PANEL. Click Hardware and Sound then double click DEVICE MANAGER.
Click the + to the left of Ports and right click Printer then click Properties click Driver tab then Uninstall driver
Right click Ports/Printer then click Properties click Driver tab then click Install/Update Driver
Follow the wizard and locate the CD drive to install the driver

Then make a series of test. Check other document programs if they are doing the same...

Everytime I close AIM my computer briefly hangs, then goes to the infamous BSOD, saying that an error in win32k.sys has ocurred, and something about a PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA.

This only started happening after I installed a new Radeon 9800 Pro and has some trouble with the drivers. At the same time, I also had to update the drivers for my Creative Audigy MP3, which has ALWAYS been causing me driver conflicts and errors.

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 problem with windows explorer crashing. I open it to access my folders and files then it crashes and I have to close it and open it again then it crashes after I click a file or folder. I get these weird icons on the side too. Sometimes it turns to a funky looking folder and sometimes my folder icons turn to trees. I also get an error message something about syntax error. Any thoughts?

Hi guys. Here's an odd one, because it happened on my old machine (which had an unstable O/S), but yesterday, I installed a factory fresh copy of XP on a brand new machine.

This morning, I went to search my drives for redundant movie files (to free up space) and every time I set the machine to search, a few seconds after windows explorer opens, it crashes. This is where I use the search command, then that opens windows explorer. I checked out the Microsoft website and I can find instances of crashes, but not associated with the search command.

Any ideas ? KP

Have you run a virus scan and malware scan? Do you have service pack 3 on it? Did windows explorer ever work or did this just start happening?

I have been getting a lot of windows explorer crashes lately.

I use C cleaner and malware bytes to keep clean. I also uses Avast for Virus scanner.

I installed Hijack this but can't seem to get a log file out of it. There is a message that alerts me to change something in hosts. I can't find a a way to run a command line like previous windows versions.

A:windows explorer crashes

1) Ccleaner doesn't do anything.
2) Define "crashes" please.

Yeah, hi. Anytime I try to use Windows explorer to open, you know, anything, it fails.

Event Viewer's record of the failure says something like this:

Explorer.EXE
6.0.6000.16549
46d230c5
gnwtae32.dll_unloaded
0.0.0.0
4843a500
c0000005
04502d1e
17e4
01c8d0e47eda1332

or this:

Explorer.EXE
6.0.6000.16549
46d230c5
ASKPBAR.DLL
2.3.0.1
46140f67
c0000005
00002c84
1120
01c8d0e43abd3f12

So gnwtae32.dll_unloaded or ASKPBAR.DLL is the problem maybe?

A:Windows Explorer crashes

nevermind. It was gnwtae32.dll doing it. If anybody finds this post Googling or something, I used Security Task Manager to fix the problem.

Hello,Recently my computer has been experiencing some weird activity. Randomly when browsing through folders explorer seems to hang and want to restart. It doesn't make the whole computer restart, but refreshes explorer and closes open folders etc. I've searched for infections and have come up empty handed. Ran AVG and saw this come up and am not sure what the meaning or reason why its coming up See: http://imgur.com/nMFXM Any advice on what the cause may be? I have done some searching and have only found people saying thumbnail view is the culprit or bad Dvix codecs being the issue. I have done the walk through's and am still experiencing the issue.Please help. Thanks

When I use windows explorer to copy files from dvd to hard disc, it shows a green progress bar on the address bar while its searching for images to put into the folder icons.

Sometimes if I start a copy and paste of files while its doing that, it crashes. Can I turn off the picture finder for the dvd drive only?

I've encountered a serious problem concerning command prompt and a few .mp4 files...

Using a formula I found elsewhere, I attempted to combine some of my video files using command prompt. The formula being "copy /B ?C:\movie1.mpg? + ?C:\movie2.mpg? + ?C:\movie3.mpg? ?C:\completemovie.mpg?." I realized that I was fusing .mp4 files, not .mpg files, though I figured it shouldn't have mattered. After successfully completing the combining process, I tried opening the folder with the file inside it. I saw the file and thought "awesome, it worked!" but two seconds later a window appeared saying "Windows Explorer has stopped working"... and now every time I try to go to that folder, Windows Explorer crashes. I've tried deleting the file, and then deleting the entire folder, but the same thing happened... any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Windows Explorer crashes

Hello. most people will need to run the SFC program 4 or 5 times to see if it can repair files . Also. you should be on SP2 . You might really want to get those updates from Microsoft installed to ensure all your programs work as they should.
