Preferred Solution: Unable to open any folder, explorer.exe continuously crashes

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.)

Please help! Explorer.exe crashes when folder windows have been open for a while. No useful information seems to be given in Event viewer and I've tried disabling everything attached to explorer using the "autoruns" utility. Nothing seems to work. I've also tried sfc /scannow and most other suggested fixes. I've added tge sevenforums registry fix and have attached the dump files that it produces.

Thanks, Steve

Seems to be a problem with IObit uninstaller shell extension.


Code:
Unable to load image C:\Program Files\IObit\IObit Uninstaller\UninstallExplorer32.dll
You won't get many recommendations for IObit products here. Personally I do use IObit Uninstaller sometimes but it's blocked from dialling home by my firewall and the shell extension has been removed. The problem is that I removed it so long ago that I don't remember exactly how I removed it.

If you've got Ccleaner installed have a look at startup entries and disable or delete any IObit entries.

The problem is with the extension, not Explorer. I would check for an update or a newer version. Perhaps you didn't install required codecs.

Hello and welcome Shadowdancer

Mate a couple you could try are

and

TDSSKiller Download for starters and then do some of this

Just as a by the by I tested Bitdefender and while very good was touchy with other anti malware stuff I always run the free Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpywrae too.

Best idea is not to run two AV's (full versions) at ant one time anyway

Don't worry about not having the disk for reinstalling as you can do a factory default or download the ISO and activate it with the code from the machines COA sticker.

Hi,

My windows explorer.exe has been crashing for the past few months when I open up a folder (e.g. My Documents, My computer). It doesn't happen everytime and I think I need to have all the folders closed and then open one up for explorer.exe to crash.

I don't like the process named Exterminate.exe. Unless it's a program you know and trust, terminate it, then open its file location and delete it, and its root folder. If it's a program you know and trust try downloading Ad-Aware 2007 SE Personal or the '08 version if it's out for free use. It will scan your computer for spyware, which is probably what's slowing down your machine.

Hey guys, I'm having another problem with my computer. Whenever I try to delete a file, or move it from one folder to another folder I keep getting a message saying that 'Windows Explorer has called an error and needs to close'

After this the whole desktop disappears, the start menu and that entire bottom bar disappears and then comes back up a few minutes later.

It's getting really aggravating, and its not only when I do things on the c drive. I can't even use my flash drives. When I try to delete something from my flash drive it crashes as well. Let me know what info that you need and I will post it up here for you to try to help me.

A:Windows Explorer Continuously Crashes

Please try this workaround (you will need your Windows? XP SP2 CD or an integrated SP3 CD if SP3 is installed).

(In the event that you do not have a Windows? XP CD with SP2,(or SP3) you will need to 'borrow' one from a friend or colleague, as the manufacturer's "Recovery Discs" will not work in this instance.)

Insert the Windows? XP CD in your drive. (Hold down the Shift Key to prevent it from starting.)

Go start > Run ...in the box type in sfc /scannow …please take note of the space between the sfc and the /.

This is the System File Checker...it will scan all the Windows? core system files to ensure that they are in their respective correct places, and if not replace them from the CD.

During the scan you may be asked to Insert the CD, if this happens just go retry and let it do its thing.

One important point: While sfc is running, it is not advisable to do any other work, or have any browsers/programs running on the computer, until the scan is complete. (This process will generally take around 45-65 minutes to complete).

A:Explorer.exe crashes continuously during startup

Hi -

The appcrash shows a Vista SP1 Windows Explorer exe crashing, listing the faulting driver as libmplayer.dll, timestamp - 0x48516b3f - which = Thu Jun 12 14:30:23 2008. It belongs to the Combined Community Codec Pack.

The exception 0xc0000005 = memory access violation usually caused by 3rd party firewall product or rogue driver.

I see you have several a/v, a/spyware & a 3rd party firewall. Get rid of Lavasoft Ad-aware - a horrible product to run in Vista. It has caused its fair share of appcrashes & BSODs.

Also installed -

Code:

Spybot Search & Destroy

Sphinx Software - VistaFirewallService.exe

Avira GmbH - Avira AntiVirus PersonalEdition

SpywareGuard

I recommend that you also get rid of that firewall - Sphinx. Re-boot upon removal; reset Windows Firewall to default settings via Advanced tab.

Windows Firewall, Windows Defender (or equiv) & 1 anti-virus program of your choice is all that you want installed. Un-install the others.

I don't know if the codec is bad here or not. I would do the above then see if codec still crashes.

Regards. . .

Hi this just started happening today. I'm not sure what happened to trigger it. I have run virus scan and it didn't found any infected files.

Explorer.exe will load when my machine starts up. About every 5-10 seconds, it will close, meaning my desktop blinks off. Another 10 seconds later (or around that) explorer.exe will start again and my desktop will come back.

Eventually, it stops trying to load and the desktop stays off. I can go to task manager and run explorer.exe to repeat the process of having explorer.exe run, stop, run, etc.

I don't receive any error messages when this happens.

This machine has the latest Microsoft updates incl service pack 2.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
 

A:Explorer.exe continuously crashes/restarts

After restarting in safemode and checking event-viewer, I saw the following:

"The shell stopped unexpectantly and explorer.exe was restarted"

I don't know what that means or how to fix it.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

This started recently; within past 60 days; haven't been able to fix w/malwarebytes or antivirus disc scan or Advanced System Care. I've seen same/similar problem posted before. I've also had Mozilla Firefox do same thing w/in this timeframe. Chrome works fine, but something devious seems to be going on here. Any suggestions???

A:[SOLVED] Computer crashes when I open a folder

Well the symptoms sound just to odd to be a "normal" problem, so my first guess would be malware.

Anyways, here's "the usual":

Check Device Manager. Click "show hidden devices" and report all flagged devices.

Check Event Viewer. Look for consistant, chronic or significant errors. Attach the full text of each different error message to your next post.

run chkdsk. Report if it finds any errors.

What is your AV software, and are your definition files fully-updated ?

I cannot click on Windows File Explorer in my task bar or start menu. No error, just a spinning circle and then my icons disappear and come back immediately.

Windows key + E does nothing. Literally, nothing.

If I use other programs to view file in original location, I can sometimes get it open. I can also get it open if I type c: in the search box. However, if I use these methods and dare to right-click, it immediately crashes.

Google search gives me other people posting this issue, with no real fix.

I have a folder which contains graphic items. It had been stored as a back-up on an external hard drive.
Subsequent to reinstalling the operating system from a disk image, I found that I can not open the saved and reinstalled folder if it is on the desktop.

If I place that folder within another folder on the desktop, I can open it. I want to be able to open it when it is directly on the desktop.

I have no idea what is wrong, or why.

No matter where a folder is located or what it contains, even if it is empty, if I right click on it, Explorer crashes. If I attempt to delete any folder anywhere, even empty ones, Explorer crashes.

This had been happening on my main system drive so I reformated a different drive and installed Windows XP on it, and began to install my programs. When I got to ITunes, that was all she wrote, folks. My computer speed dropped down to a crawl. So I uninstalled it. Since then, Explorer has been sick. I can't right click and I can't delete. Sometimes, just left clicking on a folder causes Explorer to crash. Even Dr Watson is crashing after Explorer crashes and I have to use Task Manager to close it.

All other programs run just fine. Please, can someone help me? Thank you very much. I appreciate your help.

Whenever I close a window on my computer I get a pop-up telling me there's been an error and Windows Explorer needs to close.
When I got it I thought this was a problem with my hard drive being too full as I had it almost packed working on a movie with some friends however I recently finished it and deleted off most of the raw footage clearing out a lot of space and have found the problem still persists.
I don't know if this is a related issue but I get the same thing when I close an Internet Explorer window as well although I don't use IE so that never bothered me.
Can anyone please help me? This is extremely annoying.

Hi guys,
 
I have a .3gp file that I want to open but it's either corrupt, or the folder/hard drive space where it's on is corrupt. The entire folder loads slowly, and it will not open. If I try to open it, it will slow down and possibly crash my computer.
 
I would like to fix it if possible. I tried to fix it on an online site but it didn't seem to work.
 
The interesting thing is the file was exhibiting this behavior on one computer, and I transferred it to this one, to two places, and they each have issues. Opening it in safe mode crashed as well. This file is very important to me, please help! Thank you.

Folders don't have file extensions. If the extension is is .mdb, then it is probably a Microsoft Access Database file. You will need MS Access to open it.

Hi Kegger22222

Is it OK now? I would expect that it might be fine after a reboot.

If you are having several problems since installing a recent program (or new gadget), you can try using System Restore to a restore point from before you installed your new software or hardware. You may need to reinstall your new purchases, but first check to see if an update for your program/device is available on the vendor's website.

Best of luck

So, here is my problem.

Whenever viewing folders in explorer that contain TIF image files, I receive a explorer.exe error, or a DEP error, and sometimes a DrWatson32.exe debugger error.

I've diabled DEP for explorer.exe, but that only cause the error to not show up, but the screen flashes and explorer closes.

I believe this error has something to do with TIF previews in explorer... but I can't find anything on that subject, so maybe the problem is elsewhere.

Thanks.

Either rollback to a previous restore point before the updates, do an O/S repair if you have the Win 8 install DVD or try what's in the link in an attempt to repair the O/S.

I'm one of those people who uses Limewire for my various filesharing needs. And last week, it simply stopped opening. It would get to the point where it was initializing folders, and just crashed. So I uninstalled it, and went to delete all the folders it had created. Well, when I attempted to delete the folder "Shared", windows explorer crashed. Same thing when I try to just open it, or view the folder properties, or even select it with my mouse.

Is there any way to fix this and/or delete the damned folder?

EDIT: I'm running Windows XP Pro, SP1, no other patches or anything
Also, attempting to navigate to the folder from a command prompt is successful, but even just typing "dir" simply quits command.

Incomplete avi files are probably to blame. You could try deleting it in Safe Mode or use Emco Move On Boot to delete it at next boot.

I'm not sure when this started, but now as soon as I try to access anything in a specific folder, Windows Explorer will crash 100% of the time. If I so much as right click the directory itself, WE will crash.

I've already tried using ShellExtend View to check Context Menu Handlers. I checked all the ones not made by Microsoft by disabling them one by one and checking to see if any of them is causing the problem. None of them seems to be the culprit.

This folder contains a few hundred gigabytes of software, so I can't just delete it.

Windows Explorer is one of the most important program in Windows. When you open it, it does lots of things in the background such as updating the registry, updating the start menu etc...
Most of the problems are caused by Shell Extensions and I know you did some registry tweaks. However, before you go on, you need to run from the elevated command prompt:

I'm not sure when it started, but when I open a certain folder on a network share windows explorer "looks for a solution" and then closes. There is only one folder this happens to and it only contains other folders, html docs, and php docs.

We have dozens of computers that access it fine including 2 identical machines loaded with identical images so I am assuming the user (or software) did something.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:[SOLVED] Explorer crashes when opening one specific folder

The user that logs into this computer with the issue, have them to log into the identical machine that does not have the issue as him/herself.

Does the issue persist, if it does you know it is probably a permissions issue.
If the problem does not persist then you narrowed it down to that computer or their profile on that computer.

Hi Everybody,

Explorer crashes when opening a certain folder containing video clips.Pls help me figure out whats causing it...

A:Explorer crashes when opening a certain folder containing video clips

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (Cx05) probably a driver.
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have a Raid update its Driver.

Memtest.





Quote:
*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5-7 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.



RAM - Test with Memtest86+


Driver Verifer






Quote:
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition.
Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is.
But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver.
Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows.
If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise.
Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
NOTE: You can use Low Resource Simulation if you'd like.
From my limited experimentation it makes the BSOD's come faster.
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

If you are using win 8 add these
- Concurrency Stress Test
- DDI compliance checking

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen.
Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly.
The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out.
If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

Reboot into Windows (after the crash) and turn off Driver Verifier by going back in and selecting "Delete existing settings" on the first page, then locate and zip up the memory dump file and upload it with your next post.
If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

Thanks to JGriff2 & Usasma.

I've seen a problem similar to this reported on other occasions, but no obvious consensus about the cause.

I'm using Windows XP SP3. When I visit any folder with .AVI files in it, Windows Explorer dies with a message bout "data execution prevention." This problem has started occurring since March, 2009, because I have a folder with an AVI file that I was able to visit at the time, and now I cannot do it.

I assume that there is something wrong with one of my codecs. Is there an easy to find out which codec Windows is trying to use? I've attached a list of the codecs I have.

A:Visiting a folder with AVI files crashes Windows Explorer

Note that that window only shows VfW (video for windows) codecs, not directshow ones.
The list looks pretty standard for any Windows XP installation, except for the Morgan Motion JPEG decoder.
Do you have any codec pack installed?

If I recall, earlier versions of DivX (circa version 5) had many DEP problems, but they fixed it eventually.

Does the folder in question have a lot of files?
Does the folder you visit have thumbnail view enabled? If not, how long can you stay in the folder without the DEP error? If long enough, try hovering your mouse over the files one by one until you get the error.
Once you identify the file that triggers error, open it with gspot and find out what codec it uses. For further diagnostics, click on the little 1-2-3 under MS A/V. Get the list of filters and codecs used to render the file (click on the -> arrows for the intermediate pins).

If you are unable to get into the folder at all, right-click it, and pick search. It will list your files. Then you can hover over each until you find the one that causes the problem, and proceed as mentioned above.

Yesterday I encountered a weird situation. We all know the 256 character Windows limitation, and I always was able to override this issue by renaming the file or folder. This time I had this folder with more than 256 characters, and Windows was unable to open, rename or delete it, in all cases it displayed the "too long..." message. I was finally able to resolve the issue using Winrar to rar and then extract the folder's content and later with a 3rd party tool (XYplorer) which gave me the option to permanently delete it. I was wondering if there is any command or way to deal with this same situation using only Windows' tools. Thanks

But if you move the Outlook.pst file when you start outlook can't find a personal folder file, and asks for help. Shows him to move files and outlook works fine, but before the first shutdown. Then, after another run outlook again it can not open the personal folders used by default. Maybe try some pst file reader? Tried to reinstall the office - nothing.

Hi all,

I've just transferred all my work from one laptop to a new one in the expectation that this would make life quicker & easier - not a bit of it. Instead, I find that windows explorer crashes out every time I try to access a folder on the C: drive with lots of photoshop images in it (although it seems to work fine when I try to access the same folder on my backup E: drive). It hangs, then gives me an error message saying its got to close. The details it provides when prompted include a list of 109 modules followed by a .dll file, and a series of different threads. . . ?

System information is Windows NT 5.1 Build: 2600

Any thoughts from anyone would be greatly appreciated.

So I have been having this problem for about three months now, I've tried system restore and such, but never worked and still was the same. Everytime I close a folder, i.e. Recycling Bin, My Folders, My Computer, etc. explorer.exe crashes, any idea what the problem is?

Welcome aboard.

Uninstall BitDefender completely. Use Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows.

And, run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker.

Hello,I am a newbie here and I need help.

When trying to delete a file or folder (by pressing the delete button on the keyboard or right-clicking then clicking delete), a box pops up saying that explorer windows has encountered an error and needs to close.When that happens , another box pops up saying the debugger has encountered an error and needs to close.

The result:my computer hangs and nothing happens,it stays stuck in the screen where it happened.Cant click anything nor move the cursor and I ended up pulling the power cord or pressing the reset button.

I think this started to happened when I used a third party software to delete files then windows explorer crashed and the problem started.


Please email me if you have solutions or suggestions

When I go to the Favorites bar, right-click and choose "New folder" in the context menu, it just starts with the spinning blue circle and I have to kill IE from the Task Manager.  I can add a folder from the "Organize Favorites"
menu without a problem.  I am using Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit.  IE version 11.  I already tried uninstalling IE11 and reverting to IE9.  The problem was still there.  I reinstalled IE11 and the problem still exists.  I
also tried running it in "no add-ons" mode.  I also tried a reset of the settings under Advanced Options.  Nothing has helped yet.  Any suggestions?
By the way, I don't have this problem with Windows Explorer.  I can add new folders via the context menu without a problem in Windows Explorer.

Hi,

Hoping someone can help!

When I login to my work machine and open explorer or anything, Explorer.exe crashes and restarts. Once its restarted I can no longer open any programs or explorer. If I right click on the shortcut it appears to be missing the "open" command and double clicking doesn't work either.

I have scanned for viruses, using Trend, Avast, AVG and Panda. I have also scanned for MAlware using Malware bytes & Spybot and they did not find anything.

I have also logged on as a different user, this works fine. After that I recreated the profile and still explorer.exe is doing the same

Any help is appreciated as I dont want to rebuild this workistation.

A:Explorer.exe crashes then lose ability to open anything

Most likely a bad 3rd party shell extension that was only installed in your profile.
To check this, use this free tool: ShellExView - Shell Extension Manager For Windows

Selective disable the 3rd party (non-Microsoft) extensions to determine which one is causing the crashes.
Once you find out which one it is - re-enable it and then uninstall that program from your system.

Also, please provide this info so we can see if we can figure it out from the Event Viewer reports (even though you're not experiencing BSODs): http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

any ideas anyone?

1. Please update your Internet Explorer iaw the latest Cumulative Security Update, issued two days ago.

2. Right-click My Computer, select Manage, go to the Event Viewer, and post back all Events that you consider relevant to the IE hanging.

3. Perform a cleanup of your system disc, including the Temporary Internet files for deletion.

4. In IE, go to the Tools menu -> Internet Options, and in the General tab, under the Temporary Internet files press the Settings... button and post back what you've got there, as well.

You can try doing a system restore to a day or so before you made the change to view. It will not affect any data that you have but you might have to re-install any programs that you have had since that date.
