Preferred Solution: Explorer.exe will not start no matter what I do

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.)

When I get to the screaming part, I usually create a new user ( a "trick" I discovered when I was fiddling around with XP when it came out ). Can you try that and write back what happens ?

The number one complaint on Windows is not having an extra UI but the missing of the Start Menu I can't believe how deeply the Start Menu really Menu Start matter?

A:Is Start Menu really matter?

Yep, some people dislike unexpected change, especially when they don't see the immediate value to this change.
However, once you get over the initial knee-jerk reaction, I think that it is easy to get used to the way Windows 8 works.

I have seen regular people using newly bought laptops with Windows 8 as if it was Windows 7 (because they haven't learned about all the new capabilities yet), and they were quite happy with their laptops (they mostly noticed that it boot faster and that the ultrabook are much lighter than regular laptops).

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

How old is the PC?

If Asus did not provide you with a installation CD, how did you go about reinstalling Windows 8?

How long did you give it before you shut it down?

Hi i'm clearly new here and was hopping to get some thoughts.I was told that a strong enough magnet would disrupt my wireless cam and was wondering if that was true?
 

A:Help on this matter

Hello and welcome to TSG.
Well im no expert on magnets or magnetism, but as far as i am aware anything to do with magnets (either natural, manufactured or electromagnetic), and anything electrical should always be avoided as much as possible. Even such minor things as "coiling up" excess cables can effectively turn themselves into electromagnets and thus disrupt electrical fields. So i would say yes it is possible. Whether the magnetic field disrupts the actual signal or the cam itself, i cannot say.

I have 4X512 dimms of Kingston, PC3200 400MHz, dual channel mode.

Because they are in AMD environment (Athlon 64 3200+, 2GHz, Asus A8V-Deluxe s.939), my timings are just 3-3-3-8. Also its 2T(instead of 1T), 333MHz(instead of 400). They told my that I cannot do anything to change these numbers, because I have 4 sticks in amd platform.

So, I m thinking of buy 2 new kingstons of 1GB each(2X1GB), replacing the existings 2X512. After that I ll have totally 3 GBs of ram (2X512, 2X1024) Of course I ll put them in the right position so that I ll have dual channel mode(1st module:512, 2nd:1024, 3rd:512, 4rth:1024).

The queries are:
Is it a good idea to make such a movement?
Will timings be better? Will I have T1 and 400MHz?
How much improvement shall I see? 20%? 30%? 50%?

my ask is included into attachment image

A:what is matter

I think WINRE_DRV and System_DRV are 2 hidden partitions required on GPT disks that are used with Windows. They were likely placed there during the Windows installation by default.

In that situation, you don't want C to be active.

As far as I know, you can convert a GPT disk to MBR, but I think you have to remove all partitions first.

Not sure about the above as I don't use GPT disks.

Hey! If my computer has DDR2 RAM in it, does it matter what kind of memory is on the gaming video card?? Should it be DDR2 as well, or can it be DDR3? I just wanted to make sure.

The memory type on the graphics card is independent of the memory type in RAM. It can be DDR3 even if you have DDR2 RAM.

Hello everyone I m having a bit of trouble with Windows XP Yes? It No? Matter? Does as you have probably guessed It all started a couple of months ago when I had to reinstall Windows XP from disk completly formatting my drive Yes? No? Does It Matter? due to Windows becoming slow virii getting in etc So I Yes? No?

No? Does It Matter? quot No quot I could click either one and Windows would just load the desktop anyway This had been going on for a month or so when Windows for some reason decided that whenever I clicked one of the buttons it would reboot my computer amp repeat I then because of this reinstalled Windows from disk again All has gone well until now when I rebooted my pc and the box is back Please can someone help I have tryed taking a screenshot to no avail I hope you can understand what I mean If you have any questions please let me know Thank you all in advance From Miki nbsp

A:Explorer Does Not Start

Hi,First of all... I notice from the log that there are running more than one different Anti-Virus programs with Auto-protect enabled+their Firewalls included. The McAfee Security Package + Norton Internet Security.Never install more than one Antivirus and Firewall! Rather than giving you extra protection, it will decrease the reliability of it seriously! In your case you are actually having 2 Antivirus and two FirewallsThe reason for this is that if both products have their automatic (Real-Time) protection switched on, your system may lock up due to both software products attempting to access the same file at the same time. Also because more than one Antivirus and Firewall installed are not compatible with eachother, it can cause system performance problems and a serious system slowdown. So you have to make a decision here and keep the Antivirus you prefer and uninstall the other one.Then reboot after uninstalling.It's important you follow above step first before proceeding..Then, after you uninstalled McAfee or Norton Internet Security, * Download Combofix to your desktop.In case you already used Combofix previously, please delete the version you are having and redownload it again, because Combofix is being updated everyday.Doubleclick combofix.exeFollow the prompts.Don't click on the window while the fix is running, because that will cause your system to hang.When finished and after reboot (in case it asks to reboot), combofix will open again to gather the necessary information for the log. This may take a bit. When done, Combofix will close and a log should open, combofix.txt. Post the contents of this log in your next reply together with a new hijackthislog.Do NOT post the ComboFix-quarantined-files.txt - unless I ask you to.

(I am so juiced right now it hard to actually depict what I am saying) What I mean is when windows askes you to authorize any program to execute, have you removed that setting??(I think this is found in the user settings from the control panel. any help from a sober user would greatful!!!!!!)

Is there a way to totally ignore 'library' and 'favorites' when I open windows explorer?

I mean...
When I open windows explorer, it defaults in 'library'

it also shows 'favorites'.

- I also would like my default starting location at D:/

Hi all. I'm new to this forum as of today. I was searching around Google looking for an answer to a fairly serious issue with my PC and the XP OS I have installed.

Last week the machine suddenly shut down and restarted. Once I logged in I noticed that Windows was quite slow to boot. I think it was literally 20 seconds to hit the desktop and then once my wallpaper displayed, nothing else happened...just got the windows startup music about a minute later.

Explorer.exe didn't launch and as a result I have no task bar or shortcuts.

what I've tried so far:

1) starting explorer.exe as a new task via Task Manager
2) double clicking on explorer.exe in the Windows directory
3) ran Hijack This and removed all I could.

just stumped I guess. I really don't know what could be causing this. can anyone give me some other ideas?

Thanks!

A:XP - Explorer.exe won't start! HELP!

can you boot info safe mode and see your desktop icons? also you might wanna perform a chkdsk on your computer. restart the computer, put the windows xp cd on the cdrom, go to the bios and change your first boot device to cdrom.

then let the computer too to the windows xp cd. then on the main menu, choose repair. a black dos screen will appear and it will ask you for an admin password. if you dont have one, just simply hit enter and it will skip that.

then on c: type in "chkdsk /r" without the "". it should take a bit of time and after chkdsk has finish, try booting into windows. its possible that you might need to re-install windows. what were you doing before the incident happen?

I suggest that you open the security forum, read the stickey about removing malicious programs. Follow the instructions given there. Then d/l and run HJT (Hijack this), but do not do anything until someone with a gold or green shield next to their name helps. They are specially trained to deal with these programs.

So, after a lot of banging my head against the wall figuring out a 7b error (see this thread), my computer is almost working.

When I start up the computer, I get to the welcome screen. It looks normal, and I can log in. Then, while it's "loading my settings," it takes much longer than usual and displays the hourglass-with-cursor. Then my desktop background comes up, but no start menu. I can run things from task manager, but explorer doesn't come up, and if I run it manually, it comes up briefly before disappearing again. Iexplore doesn't come up at all.

I don't see any relevant errors in the Event Log. I've already tried a sfc /scannow and a repair install.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I have loaded the drivers furnished by Compaq and I have no exclamation points in Device Manager.

My guess is the wireless adapter is kaput; but, before I spend any money, I would like to know what others here might know about this that I might not.

The power button for this laptop is at center top of the keyboard and the wireless button is just a half-inch to the right of it. It has the wireless symbol on it, lit in orange and it finds no network although I do have a working wireless router on which another laptop here is currently working.
 

A:Wireless LAN indicates it's off no matter what

Unfortunately, a non-working wireless adapter and a wireless light which is permanently amber is a widespread fault with HP & Compaq laptops (Google Search brings up loads of forum posts to prove how widespread it is). My grandaughter's packed up on her Compaq last year and it defied all attempts by me to fix it so I bought her a plug-in USB wireless adapter which solved the problem.

In my daughter's case, the built-in wireless adapter wasn't even listed in Device Manager, which means it isn't even being detected, which usually means the device has failed. Your Device Manager is probably not listing it either (hence no errors are shown).

If the laptop is still under warranty, HP will repair it free of charge (or at least that is what I read on the various forums last year).

Cat 6 will give you better transfer speeds from computer to computer in your network. it will also auto sense devices. It wont make your internet any faster

A:Cant get picture out no matter what... tried everything

Seeing that this is your first post, I will say "welcome to TechSpot"!

Next, I know this has you a bit miffed, I've been down your road of computer frustration at one time or another, but your going to have to give us a little bit more information.

How about a small list of all your components?
What type of case your trying to install of this in?
What is your power supply, and what is it's rating?
What Operating System are you using here?

Maybe a slight "step by step" of what you did prior to uninstalling the I.D.E. DVD drive, through that, to installing the SATA DVD drive. If your suspicions are true, and you think that you missed something minor, doing a small 'step by step" thing sometimes takes care of these sort of thing.

So please get back to us, we are here to help!

Id use 124GB SSD to load my OS, Video Editing Programs and other main programs that you have on. Keep all the data such as music, pictures, videos on a normal HDD.



My big question is will I get faster video rendering if the program is on the OS drive?Click to expand...

You mean if the program is on the SSD with the OS? Id guess so since it will write the data faster, but I am not expert and on top of that I don't have a SSD. But also a GOOD CPU will play a good roll in that.

Dear Carrie:

Sorry to tell you, but it seems like you must find a fresh new XP cd in order to reinstall it, as well as your previously installed software (provided you had backed up things before the disaster).

If you at least were able to start XP and some other kind of errors were jumping out, maybe something could be done. But don't guide by my opinion only. Here at the forums are some pretty cool geniuses which could help you better than me.

Sorry for not being of much more help

My acer Aspire 5738Z has a web cam called a crystal eye. when I downloaded windows 8 saw that it had a simple to use camera app. No matter how I try I cannot get it to work. I have tried every driver I can find even the ones on the Acer support page. I still get the response "camera not found" In fact this is a true statement because I
can't find where the camera is stored on my system. Any advice welcome. I never tried the camera until I changed to windows 8 so I am not sure if it ever worked.

A:not sure this is a windows 8 matter!!

I would appreciate if someone would explain the significance of DVD regions. I rented an old movie from my local library. When I tried to play it on my Windows 7 machine, there was a message that the DVD was purchased in region 1, my computer DVD drive was set for region 2, and I needed to change the region. Since there is a limited number of region changes that can be made, I decided not to make the change and did not watch the movie.
 
Would someone please explain the technical background as to why regions matter? And why did Microsoft decide to limit the number of region changes for Windows 7?

A:DVD regions - why do they matter?

1.  Just read what Wikipedia has to say about region codes yourself.
 
2.  If you use VLC Media Player it will play any region code DVD without a fuss.

Having seen the required specs for half life 2, I've decided to upgrade my current ram and purchase an AMD 2500 processor - my current system is a s follows, AMD 1700, 512 DDR ram (generic), softmodded radeon 9500 128 np, W2000k and a 40 gig HD, not top notch kit but enough to play any current game at optimal configuration.
My question is this, my current 2100, 266mhz generic ddr ram works pretty much adequatly and has given me no cause for complaint but on checking prices, find that higher specc'd ram is'nt as expensive as I'd assumed - would purchasing 333mhz or 400mhz ram offer significant increase in performance or are these specs only relevant to hard core modders?

Here is the problem I just recently was given a laptop. I was told that it was hooked up to a tv with HDMI but, there was sound on the laptop. I am running Windows 7 Premium HP Pavilion g7-1318dx Notebook PC
Serial Number: 6CF2085XDS Product Number: A7A43UAR . I have no sound with just notebook speakers. I have went to the HP driver download site and tried to download the audio drivers. I receive a warning " The Hardware detected is not supported by this IDT software package. Install will now abort." There are 3 Audio downloads on the Hp website none work. The speaker Icon down by the clock with a red X on it when you do a mouse roll over it says no speakers or headphones are plugged in. I have tried headphones still no sound. I have also tried to the windows trouble shooter and it says it detects no problems. Play back devices is only showing Digital Audio (HDMI) High definition Audio device not plugged in. Recording says there are no audio devises are installed in. I have tried everything any help would be appreciated.
 

A:No sound no matter what

I think that you need an extra lead because HDMI gives picture only. The lead I have has a mini stereo jackplug at one end which goes into the computer's headphones socket and two phono plugs (white and yellow) at the other to plug into the TV's audio input at the back. You should then be able to work out how to set up the sound via Control Panel.

i think you are going to have to take the side off and check for any loose connections. make sure if theres a video card that its seated properly .
if you have no success, unplug it and pop the battery out for at least 20 minutes to reset the cmos.
you might need to tweak the bios setup options afterwards.

But my question is will the instalation work or like this or do i need to remove all the partitions and start again.

Hope someone can advise me.

I'm at my wits end - it didn't take long!

Fixing up an old Intel 845EPT2 for a neighbor. I did a Reinstall of XP, installed all Drivers straight off the Intel Website, and no matter what, there's no Audio.

"No Device Installed" even though the Soundmax appears in System / Devices.

I have double checked Audio is enabled in the BIOS.

I even threw in an old Soundblaster Live!, turned off Audio in the BIOS, installed Drivers and it did the same thing.

I'm running an SFC / SCANNOW .

The weird thing is that it had Audio before {along with a million viruses, which is why I re-installed}

uninstall all your drivers in device manager, go to your C drive and program files, make sure all files related to the drivers, software is deleted, also, do a add remove any software that may use those same sound drivers that you previously uninstalled. turn off machine, take your card out, if you're using onboard, disable in bios, start up, let windows load, if its a sound card installed in a pci slot a "new hardware" window should pop up, install drivers through that dialog box. If its an onboard sound device just simple restart after windows has started up and recognized no sound devices or drivers installed, go back to bios, enable sound, start up, reinstall drivers and software....I hope this helps as I just had this problem last night and had to figure out how to fix it, GL

I have GigaByte 8I955 Royal which specs 1.8 volt for the ram.

When I went to Newegg.com's memory configuration tool, it comes back with all different voltage rams for me range from 1.8 1.9 to 2.1 volt.

Can I use higher volt ram in my motherboard?

Your help is appreciated!

A:Ram Volt Does it matter

You need to check QVL of compatible ram for your motherboard.
1.8v is the motherboard default ram voltage, check in bios to see if you have the option to change the ram voltage.
If you don't have the correct voltage for the ram you will run into booting problems

A:WMM glitching no matter what I do! :(

Are you using the WMM that comes with Vista or is this the Windows Live Essentials WMM? If not the latter, I think you are eligible for it with Vista and you might try that version. Otherwise there is Pinnacle VideoSpin which is free and you might find does as much as you need without having to pay for a more capable editor.

Hi I have matter no loud CPU what Fan a custom computer I built and I m having real problems with how loud it had gotten Recently my friend gave me his old processor P GHz with HT and its running CPU Fan loud no matter what on my new mother board ASUS P CPU Fan loud no matter what NSLI and it has been running so loud that it keeps me up I have to open my window to let in degree air to slow the fan down There was one fan already in the case that was sucking air out on the panel side and i recently purchased another one to put in the back near the cpu to blow air in and it made about Zero difference and its putting a good amount of air in My heat sink is just a intel that came with the CPU The fan speeds run as follows at rpm when the CPU is C This is relatively quiet but still can easily tell that the computer is running but this is with the window open haha once i close the window the temp is still at C but it will run at rmp- rmp which is enough to wake me up note these temps are mostly unaffected by cpu usage when i run transcode for my converts an avi file into wmv as fast possible to play through media center If the window is open no sound and the cpu is under rather a heavy load but in the same respect if the window is closed and I m not even using my computer its like a highway in my room The Computer itself isn t in a confined area either it is out in the open in a place where air circulates easily So my though that was maybe i need to mess with the settings in BIOS since i have never really touched them in new computer Any suggestions on what to do whether it is through the BIOS or just how I placed the fans in the case thankyou nbsp

A:CPU Fan loud no matter what

You may be able to change the thresholds for temperature in the bios on whether it kicks the fan into high speed or not.

I'd also suggest taking that fan you put in the back of the case and reverse it so it blows air out, thats traditionally how its done, and makes more sense with the air dynamics inside a case. Fans on the side panels or the front typically blow air into the case, so I'd suggest doing that as well.

You can pull the heatsink off the processor (with the comp shut down of course) and clean it off with 99% Isopropyl alcohol and reapply some thermal paste. Artic Silver seems to be the consensus for doing that, but you can also get away with the thermal paste Radio Shack sells if you must.

A final thing you could do is get an aftermarket heatsink and fan that will run quieter and cool better.

im trying to upload a photo and it wont let me because the require a photo less than 500kb abd ub jpeg my photo seems to be bigger than that how do i make it smaller? i have kodak easyshare software, thank you
 

A:size does matter

gettingthere said:

abd ub jpeg my photo Click to expand...

pardon?

to reduce the size of an image you just need an image editor of some description, the professional app of choice is of course photoshop, which has an extremely useful 'save for web' function that performs this task.

The more widely available (ie cheaper) app is paintshop pro, which you can d/l a demo from jasc.com.

I wouldn't be surprised however, if you existing kodak easyshare had some facility to reduce the (physical) size of an image, is there an option on one of the menus or toolbars to reduce the pixel size and/or the dpi resolution? You may find your photo is currently in several megapixels; the default maximum for the camera that took the photo. If it's just to be used for browsing onscreen, eg on a webpage or similar, then it only needs to be 72pdi which would save a massive amount of file space.

i used to have dual boot windows vista and ubuntu and i got rid of ubuntu and the grub boot loader (by using vista recovery cd and using the command bootrec.exe /FixMbr) which i replaced with the vista boot loader from the recovery cd i made but for some reason i dont have BIOS anymore. at all. and when i press f9 to load my recovery partition it gives me the error
PXE E61 media test failure, check cable
PXE M0F exiting pxe ROM

then it loads windows vista and i cannot reformat my computer because of this. i really need to get this done as soon as possible i cannot express how grateful i would be to whoever can help me solve this problem. thankyou.
 

A:URGENT matter.

Vista and the boot-loader have nothing to do with BIOS.

Try a PS/2 keyboard if you are using USB.

You might try resetting CMOS. The machine is trying to boot from the network, possibly because it can't find any OS.

I think this looks like a driver issue. If you know how to run the driver verifier function, try that. If you've never run it before, be careful... you can get stuck in a BSOD/reboot loop. Here is a tutorial for running driver verifier.

If the driver verifier function makes you too nervous, you could manually search for updated drivers for all of your hardware by going to the manufacturers' websites, one by one, and getting the latest drivers.

I know that with a cassette tape, when you go down to the fourth or fifth generation, you can really hear the difference. The sound gets quite muffulled.

But what about CD-Rs?

Can I go down four or five generations and still maintain the same sound quality. I know there are rumours that digital CD-Rs make exact copies, but I thought I'd ask the tech gang to make sure.

Hi. I posted a long rambling thing a little while ago because I'm looking at a new laptop. Let me cut out all that stuff and get to one point I'm really curious about -- does 64 bits matter?

I know some people say this is just around the corner, but is it a revolution or just hype?

Obviously I am also curious whether there is a point in waiting to buy a new computer until Intel goes 64 bit -- but the computer I have now is ancient and can't run anything anymore, so I probably don't have that luxury.

Still, I wonder what 64 bits actually means. It's my feeling that 32 bits is doing a pretty decent job and going from 8 --> 16 and 16 --> 32 were the real revolutions. But maybe someone has a different take.

I have a toshiba portege with Windows NT. My desktop and taskbar vanished, with the result that I have to start programs with ctrl+alt+dlt new task. Upon further inspection, I realized explorer.exe wasnt among my running processes. Starting it manually through new task resulted in my taskbar flickering to life momentarily, disappearing almost as quickly as it came. So my guess is that explorer.exe is there, it just terminates right after I start it. Any ideas?

You need to start windows with the recovery console. You can create discs to do this, or download them from http://www.bootdisc.com (requires 4 floppies). Then select the repair option. If this doesnt work you will need to re-install windows im afraid.

Hi, have you tried running sfc /scannow from an elevated command prompt?

Okay,

I installed SP2 after a re-format today. And everything was going smooth at start-up. Then I started noticing that my icons weren't coming up, and my start button was missing! Well I opened task manager and manually started explorer.exe and it came up for 2 seconds and then terminated. I tried again and again, and it never worked. So I did a ton of Spyware and virus scans. I got rid everything, but it still isn't working! I just re-formatted not even 48 hours ago, I don't want to do it again. Oh yeah, and I tried to repair XP with my OS CD, no luck. Still problems. I need help FAST!!!

Hi,

I've been having this issue on one of my user's Laptop. The symptoms are exactly the same as the following thread which I read and tried the solution:-

http://forums.techguy.org/all-other-software/568737-solved-internet-explorer-wont-start.html

But still I am not able to get it fixed. I've even downgraded IE8 to IE6 and removed/reinstall IE6 and then reinstall IE8 etc to no avail.

If anyone could assist further, that would be great.

G'Day Mocca, and Welcome to TSF!

Going by what you have said, I suggest that you do post that HiJackThis Log, but not in this forum...it will need to be posted on our Security Forums;particularly, the HJT Forum.

Go to the link The 5 Steps in my signature, where you will find comprehensive instructions as to what to do.

Good Luck with it.



Dave T.

EDIT:

I will transfer you to the HJT Forum, with your opening post, so that you will not have to re-explain yourself.

A:Explorer.exe wont start

Hello, I had the same problem and found a fix earlier today:

delete these from your registry (AS ALWAYS, MAKE A BACKUP FIRST IF YOU ARE NOT SURE WHAT YOU ARE DOING)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\explorer.exe
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\iexplorer.exe

Worked for me and a few other people...let me know



found that here Explorer won't run

so that it opens in the root directory of a hard drive, and not in the My Documents folder.

The tyranny of My Documents is the biggest Windows annoyance of all, IMHO.

Thanks

Hello Again,

Dell Dimension E521, Windows XP Pro w/SP2

I have a friend's machine I'm trying to fix. Originally it wouldn't boot up at all, so I did a Windows XP re-install; now it boots, but won't allow IE to start. It makes a shortcut on the screen, as many times as I double-click the IE icon. When I select the IE icon, and right click, it shows "Create Shortcut", "Delete", "Rename", and "Properties".

I tried going to "My Computer/C:/Program Files/Internet Explorer" found the right icon, but that way won't start IE either.

The machine was said to have gotten 2 trojans, "Backdoor TDS..." and Trojan.fakeAv..." but those have been removed with MBAM. I'm running SuperAntispyware on now, to see what that finds. I also updated and ran Norton Antivirus.

Any ideas??

A:Internet Explorer Won't Start

My understanding is that...TDSS rootkit is one of those things that requires a clean install...to be sure of the integrity of the system.

At least, that's the way I remember it...but I'm no authority of any sort on malware.

In Windows XP I had the following added to the Target line of Explorer's shortcut " /n, /e, C:\" and on clicking on the shortcut I was taken directly to C:\ with the other drives listed underneath.

In Win 7 this trick does not work and Explorer still insists on listing all the Favourites, then all the Libraries, then Homegroup and only then Computer and the main drives. As my thinking is fixed in XP and earlier I do not use any of the items in Favourites, nor do I use Libraries or Homegroup routinely. 99 times out of 100 I want to get to C:, D;, E; F:, or one of the drives attached to the USB ports.

Is there some way to modify the shortcut so that I can get back to the familiar picture I used under XP?
