Preferred Solution: A blank Explorer.exe window appears on boot

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.)

I would before venturing into the registry run an anti malware program such as Malwarebytes Antimalware first. It will scour the registry and your PCs files for any rogue coding causing the issue. This has been discussed with some success here for Windows 8 users:http://www.eightforums.com/performa...Either way it appears to be something that doesn't belong on your PC. Other adept forum regulars may be along to provide more comprehensive assistance. I would hold off altering the registry until then.

A:blank page appears in new window

Which browser are you using? IE6 - 7 etc.?
Have you done a windows update recently to get the latest fixes?
Try Googling for the wording the same as your post, it is a known problem with IE6 and fixes are available.

I posted before regarding this problem with a different title to the thread.

I was running with Vista 32 bit on my PC and bought a Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade and installed. But annoyingly the explorer window appears at each start up. I have tried re-installing several times but with no change.

Now in retrospect, all I have to do is click 'X' and it goes. But it is annoying and if anyone can help stop it appearing it would be appreciated.

Bear in mind I am pretty much a novice in computer terms and any fixes can you keep it basic.

regards and thanks

A:Help. Explorer window appears at start up.

Hey John.

Press start, and type msconfig. This will bring up the startup menu where you can enable or disable startup services. If you look through the tabs, is there any place where it starts an explorer window? If you check "Safe Startup" on the main screen and reboot, does it still happen?

The system is current with Windows Updates.

I have applied the registry edit as specified here.

FEATURE_FORCE_POPUPS_ONTO_MONITOR_KB974537

I got a "hot fix" for this issue from Microsoft - but that was already installed, as I am up to date with Windows Updates.

Assistance is appreciated.

Hi I successfully finished some volunteer work helping a woman in need to get a working computer system I frankensteined an XP system together and got her online via earthlink dial-up There are no broadband providers in her area After Mystery Disconnect Appears IE Window Dial-Up Explorer and she cannot afford cellular broadband This isn t a huge problem rather Mystery IE Explorer Window Appears After Dial-Up Disconnect just a mild annoyance I thought maybe you guys might be able to help me with it When we disconnect from earthlink IE explorer displays the following window The window appears after we shut down the earthlink Mystery IE Explorer Window Appears After Dial-Up Disconnect window After IE is closed It reopens and displays the window Earthlink tech support which is very not-personal and scripted I think from India was no help We did a few things in Internet Options including turning off a redial reconnect option but nothing stopped the window from appearing The techs final word was that the problem was not on Earthlink s end rather it was a computer problem XP was freshly installed so I don t know if I agree with him Thanks for your input nbsp

A:Mystery IE Explorer Window Appears After Dial-Up Disconnect

Dial up, whew, that's a rarity!

How do you normally establish the connection to the internet, is there an Earthlink program you click on to connect?

First thing to try, inside Internet Options, on the General Tab, choose to use a new Tab or use a blank page. Connect, surf, disconnect. Any change?

Can you install an alternate browser and try it out (with IE closed off)?

Had, and still have installed in machine, an SSD with Windows 7 as OS
Had, and still have, a Western Digital 2 TB external HD attached. It was used as back up for the original set up. This also has the Smart Ware software installed but which I have not used.

Tried a dual boot on a new SSD using Windows 8.1 recently but turned out ot be a pain so I simply installed 8.1 on new disk.

The problem-

When I boot and Windows 8.1 starts, window showing the external hard drive and contents appears. Annoying. How can I stop this?

I am planning to reformat this external storage and redo the back up using the new 8.1 OS and current content of the my other HDD containing our data, will this likely stop the "pop-up" on start?
Thank you for any assistance or ideas.

I've tried some solutions to this rare situation and nothing.

I mean the following:
By the way, I've noted that:
1.- In 'View-Choose Details' window, there is "Name" option only (may be this is normal):
2.- But, in 'Tools-Folder Options' window, in the 'View' tab, option "Always show menus" (normally in "Files and Folders" section, second position) has disappeared!:

I didn't pressed the "Restore Defaults" button because I think this is for other purpose, isn't it?

So, I don't know what to do... I wonder someone of you may give me a hand to solve this...
In other words, please help me!

Thanks in advance,

A:Blank screen after boot - Window 8.1

Can you tell us why you were trying to do a system restore?  Your previous problem may be connected to your current one. I agree that it's probably not your diplay, especially if you can see your cursor arrow, but can you see a small flashing line in the upper left corner of the screen?  This is generally an indication of a hardware problem.

Hi,
This problem has been occurring for a while. A few minutes after windows starts, a small internet explorer window suddenly pops up for a few seconds and then automatically disappears. The window displays nothing more than "Internet explorer cannot display the page." It is as if this is some kind of adware that comes up everytime windows starts except that no ads show up as I have an adblocker HOSTS file. I would really like to get rid of this issue. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Hey, I've just got a virus on my computer by going to a website which is a forum, or by downloading a cartoon video "family guy", but this video is avi, once the show starts, my computer started to lag by alot, and now my taskbar disappear and sometimes my wallpaper too, it kept on coming back and off, back and off. And recently i've turned off my firewall, sigh, i've tried to scan the viruses and remove them, but it seemed like it doesn't work. If you know how to fix this, please tell me, because i have alot of informations in there! thanks you so much!!

Hello,

I newly updated IE6 to IE7 today and for some odd reason there is a blank toolbar that appears across IE7 under the tab. whenever I start IE7. It goes away when I click to add a tab or if I do almost anything on a webpage.

I used malware and superantispyware to check for any toolbars but nothing. msconfig doesn't show anything unusual. Any idea how to find out what this is?

I am constantly getting a blank white page when I switch from one program, e-mail, etc. How can I get this fixed without having to purchase RegCure. I purchased this software and tried it, but it did not work. This is a very irritating and frustrating problem. I have to go to Task Manager and delete it before I can proceed. How can I get this fixed permanently? Tell me what I need to change in the Registry to prevent this from happening.
Thanks. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium 32.

Hi, maybe if you go back and read your post again then ask yourself have I made my problem clear, what could I add to help those who would help me... try to tell us more about the problem when did it start do you mean opening any program only opens a blank screen, and RegCure is not a recommended program more likely the cause rather then the solution have you run this and what makes you believe the solution resides in the registry, and not between the keyboard and the chair.

could I use mct and get the latest there and then do an upgrade which should keep all of my data and files.
I originally did the upgrade from Windows 7 Home and that all went well.

Yes. Positively.

MCT link :

Upgrade Install :
Download the Tool and run it.
Then select Create installation media for another PC
That will begin downloading the ISO file to your computer.
When download is completed, RIGHT click at the ISO > click Mount > click Setup.exe.
That will begin installing Windows 10.
You have the choice of keeping settings, files and apps.
No product key is required.

Just about to edit some sound files until I noticed that when I right click on the file or any file, folder, etc. (apart from the stuff inside a browser), the box is white. To see what's written, I need to hover my mouse and move it. I don't know what caused it. I was just reading some news before working and it happened. I'm currently thinking that it's a virus, malware or those nasty stuff. Currently running RogueKiller and see if there's anything suspicious. Will edit after doing the scan.

Edit: Just restarted the PC and the problem's gone. RK didn't find anything suspicious too.

Any suggestions on what programs to use to scan my PC?

A:Blank white box appears when right clicking.

I have seen this happen before in windows. It does not happen often, but graphical glitches sometimes occur. I doubt its malware related. Malware these days attempts to not show itself, and would not have much a reason to do what you are describing.

Had it been a long time since you restarted?

Could be explorer.exe on the fritz.

I tried running Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth followed by sfc /scannow in command prompt without success. Any suggestions to repair this? Thanks

A:Start Menu appears blank

Not familiar with using this program.
If you tried settings within this program and it did not help, possible program has corrupt or missing files, should have nothing to do with Windows 8 as far as SFC, which fixes system files not other software files. Any system restore points ? If not try reinstall this software.

Well, this only started recently. Apparently, I somehow messed up my computer and now I am loaded with annoying pop-ups. However, that is not what I am posting about. Lately, I have been getting this window saying:

Buffer overrun detected!

Program D:/WINDOWS/explorer.exe

A buffer overrun has been detected which has corrupted the program's internal state. The program cannot safely continue execution and must now be terminated.

This is the first time I have seen such a window in my life, and I don't really know what to do about it. Also, after I click "ok," explorer just restarts. Thanks in advance.

That problem might very well be related to your popup problem, so first thing is to get rid of that malware.

I think the title says it all

What to do if a questionable pop up window appears?

For example, if I'm doing some research on Google and I start clicking on many sites. Some of them will obviously be safe, but I might go on a not-so-great site and get a pop up window telling me to download an antispyware program (like Antivirus 2009 ). I've read somewhere that even if I click on the "X" to close the window, it might be too late. Would "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" be a good idea?

A:What to do if a questionable pop up window appears?

That is the better option. Ctrl Alt Del. the X is probably too late. I would still scan my PC.

Since this is a long term problem, I would tend to suspect the keyboard. Check for stuck keys, and if that doesn't cure the problem, try a different keyboard.

This is the main reason your computer is infected. Visiting cracksites/warezsites - and other questionable/illegal sites is always a risk.

Even a single click on the site can drop multiple forms of very serious malware, many of which disable your onboard protection, and System Restore.

If you install the cracked software, you are running executable files from these dubious, unknown sources. You are in effect giving these sources access to information on your hard disk, and potential control over the operation of your computer.

Additionally, cracked programs are illegal. Before posting for help, uninstall any such applications.

Referring to the Forum Rules which you should have read at the time of Registering at this forum, TSF does not support illegal activity. As such, be advised that any request for assistance in removing malware may go unanswered, or may be discontinued, if the cracked (illegal) software is still present on the machine.

In 2006, a study revealed that 59% of keygens and crack tools downloaded from peer-to-peer networks contained malicious or "unwanted" software.

Outlook Incoming mail appears to be blank

The problem I have is that when received Outlook Express messages are opened they all appear to be blank and if there is an attachment then it isn't visible.
If I try to print the message to Adobe PDF the about_blank name appears in the save-as area, and the printed message is blank.
I can send messages OK and the Inbox list of received messages looks OK too.
The machine was attacked with ?about-blank /claimed to be Smitfraud? last year, and looked to be cleaned, (http://www.daniweb.com/techtalkforums/thread26465.html). I?ve not used Outlook Express before on this PC so maybe it could be nothing to do with about_blank?..Up to now I?ve used Hotmail via internet so not had to access/store email through a POP3-SMTP/ PC based system.
Can anyone help, please.
Best regards,
Paul.

Hi. I have spend days on the internet looking for help and cannot get my problem solved. When I turn on my computer it boots up and lets me login. Then when my desktop starts to load the screen just goes blank and there is no cursor either. I tried to go into safe mode and after I login there it logs off and reboots into normal mode. I can login to safe mode with command prompt but nothing I have tried has worked. Could someone please help me. I am so frustrated and I need my computer for my sons schooling. Thank you in advance for any help. It is very much appreciated!

A:After logging in desktop appears for a second and screen goes blank

What have you tried already? How long has this been happening? If a recent thing, have you tried a system restore (from safe mode)? You could try running a sfc/scannow to find and hopefully repair any corrupted system files too. Heres a link to a tutorial on how to do that if you haven't before : SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I had to replace a failed primary drive and so did a clean install of Window 7 Home Premium.

Now, whenever I login in, an "Open with" window immediately appear on the desktop, naming 'Tom' as the file to be opened. Tom is the sole (admin) user.

When Notepad is selected to open the file, the following appears:

What is causing this? How can it be stopped?

BTW, if I choose not to open, I have to click Cancel twiice to clear the window.

A:An 'Open with' window appears after login

I waited for someone more knowledgeable to answer your questions - but seeing no posts, I'll step in.

My guess as to what caused it:
Something barfed and wrote a log file or a part of a log file to one of the start up folders and there is no file extension on the file. Thus, every time you log in, the computer tries to open this file.

My guess as to how to stop it:

1) unhide this info: File Extensions - Hide or Show

2) unhide this too: Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide

3) look in this folder for the file or shortcut to the file that you keep seeing open:
C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
If it is there - delete it.

4) look in this folder for the file or shortcut to the file that you keep seeing open:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
If it is there - delete it.

If the file is not in either of those two places, then you might need to look in the registry for a "run entry" that is causing the file to try and open. Since this is unlikely, I'll wait to hear the results of the steps above before posting how to work with the registry.

If you opt to open the file in Notepad and then use the File > Save As feature, you can locate the offending files location - but deleting the file might not solve the whole issue if there is a shortcut pointing to it.
BTW, the only reason that I can think of for your having to press close twice to dismiss the "open with" dialog box is - the file is being opened twice or there are two such files being opened.

Every few minutes a rectangular window pops up with the title of REMINDER (full date and time) Below is the Heading "This page cannot be found...followed by al the things that might cause it if you were in IE. At the bottom are two lines in smaller font: Cannot find server or DNS Error
Internet Explorer

There is no way to close the window - no buttons at top, etc. Only way to close is to use CTRL/ALT/DEL The "program" is called REMINDER.

Where does this come from? All Google references are to its appearing while using IE if connection to web is broken, etc.

I ran it on the CDR/DVD drive because that's what I think it is. The only other thing I have attached to the computer that might respond to an autoplay type command is the hard drive. I havemn't run this on the hard drive.

For a couple of weeks, a mystery window has been appearing on my screen, and immediately closing again before I can identify it. I haven't been able to discern a pattern to it yet.

I've scanned my computer with MS Security Essentials and MalwareBytes, and it's come up clean - doesn't look like malware. But I'd like to identify the program and deal with whatever it's trying to tell me. Any idea how to go about this?

I'm using an up-to-date copy of Win7 Pro.

Thanks!

A:Identifying window that closes as soon as it appears

Welcome to Seven Forums rschaefe. Does this window flash reliably? That is, can you expect it to flash within a certain time period, or when performing certain steps? It's possible you may be able to capture it using the Problem Steps recorder.

Problem Steps Recorder

The only other thing I can think of is a scheduled scanner task perhaps. Like an end to a Windows Defender scan for instance, which might conceivably flash a window quickly, but would create a log file with a time stamp that would correspond to the time period of the flash I believe. Another possibility would be event viewer event at the time the flash occurred.

My desktop has a blue background that cannot be changed. When I click on the volume control icon on the taskbar I get the following popup: "Volume Control has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." The audio works regardless but the level cannot be adjusted.

These problems are minor but I thought they might be resolved by restoring the system to an earlier date. So I launched System Restore but it appears as a blank white screen. I was thinking that maybe I should try a new desktop now but I'm not sure if this will correct the problem or is the easiest solution. Please help!

Very recently, each time I activate VLC, it appears on screen with its right and bottom edges way out of sight. I can fix that of course by draging the top left corner this way and that each time but that's a pain and shouldn't be necessary.
Is there a way I can avoid having to do this in future, perhaps somewhere within the dozens of VLC settings?

A:Window Sys32 Properties Appears On Opening

The System32 folder opens at startup because of a corrupt system registry value. The value could have been corrupted for a number of reasons to include malware or installing/uninstalling a program from the Internet which did not install/uninstall itself properly.Click on the link below:http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htmScroll down to #260 and click "System32 Folder Opens Upon Boot" in the right column. You will be prompted to download xp_systems32opens.vbs. Save the file to your desktop and double-click on it to run the script. Since the script modifies certain registry settings you may receive an alert from your anti-virus or any script blocking program. Ignore the warning and allow it to continue.The problem could also be caused by empty run entries in your startup shortcuts which will open the system32 folder. Check the startup run registry entries and remove those entries. See System32 Folder Opens When Logging on to Windows.These steps involves making changes in the registry. Always back up your registry before making any changes. If you are not familiar with working in the registry, then you should NOT attempt to make any changes on your own. Improper changes to the registry could adversely affect your computer and render it inoperable. ERUNT is an excellent FREE tool that allows you to to take a snapshot (backup) of your registry before making changes and restore it when needed.

My younger brother's daughter gave him a desktop about a year ago which runs Windows 2000, but he didn't get around to setting it up until just yesterday. While it was booting up, the logon window appeared with the username name but no password. He contacted his daughter, but she didn't remember what it was. In desperation, he contacted me to see if I could resolve the problem. I've never used Windows 2000, so I'm not sure how. I've read Microsoft's KB article #258289 and forwarded to him, but I'm not sure if it'll help him.

I'm trying to play an old PC game called 'outlive' on windows 7, when I load the game a blank screen appears but the sound works perfectly. If I come off the game and then go back onto it I can see glimpses of the home screen but the screen is unresponsive so I can't move the cursor. Any help would be much appreciated!

i'm running windows XP (not sure if its SP2 or SP3) with Symantec AntiVirus v10. If I use the computer without connecting to the net, everything seems fine. When I connect to the net, I get a pop-up window (Auto-Protect Results) which pops up telling me I have a Bloodhound.Exploit.196 Risk.
I googled this, which led me to the symantec web site, where I was advised to do the following:
- Disable System Restore (Windows Me/XP).
- Update the virus definitions.
- Run a full system scan.

I have completed this task, but it doesn't resolve the problem.

Wondering if any of you guys could help me?
Thanks

Hello and Welcome.

Please turn System Restore back on. Symantec is misguided telling users to disable System Restore before a malware removal effort. A dirty (infected) restore point is better as a fallback position than none at all.

Hello,
On my wife's laptop, I've noticed lately that as windows 7 is loading, a prompt appears on the desktop but is only visible for a few seconds. I'm unable to see what it says, is there anyway to see what it might be ?
Thanks,
David

Update: I think I discovered what the prompt was, I had this software installed on both my wife's computer and mine, http://www.malwarebytes.org/antiexploit/ . I didn't see the additional prompt window on my computer due to the fact I'm running windows 8.1, and I was booting to the 'metro' screen, when I changed my computer to boot directly to the desktop, I saw the same prompt appear. I un-installed the software and no longer see the prompt.

A:Additional Window Prompt Appears as Windows 7 is loading

It sounds like a prompt when Malwarebytes trial period is over.

At that time you can choose to buy the Premium version or use the free version.

Hi,

I'm trying to help a friend with their computer. They have a fairly new high-end Dell computer running Windows XP Pro. When one logs into to their profile the Windows System 32 file contents pops up, and has to be closed to proceed. They said it has been doing this from day one. They have never owned or used a computer, so they had no idea it was not suppose to pop up.

Is there a way to correct this?

Thanks,

elizbeth

Dear Staff Member,

I am getting this small window when I start my computer and it does not allow anything to start. I get various window messages, this time around I wrote down which ones:

"Div X Update Has Stopped Working"
"Adobe Acrobat Speed Launcher Has Stopped Working"
"Google Installer Has Stopped Working"
"Skype Has Stopped Working"

And I tried running a couple of file on Word and Power Point and the samething happened not allowing them to open.

Can you please help me?

Thank you kindly in advance.

A:A "Stopped Working" window appears and does not allow to run/start any program

Do you have an updated AV program installed? Last time you ran a scan of the system?

Have you tried booting to Last Known Good Configuration?

Tried safe mode?

How long has this problem existed on this system? When is last time all was OK with system?
