File Crashes Explorer


A file i have been downloading for a game via bittorent (legal mod for a game) that i was re downloaded to play with friends has been giving me some trouble. It started with bittorrent locking up when trying to check the files after i re started it, so i thought it was the program and uninstalled it and went to delete the 2 files i was downloading. When i try to delete the files it would bring up the recycle task bar and start locking up my computer and eventually crash explorer, even after that i can hear my hard drive making noise so i ran virus scans (avg), hijack this, ccleaner, seagates hard driver check (to see if it was dieing).

And nothing came up. I know have the two files sitting there and if i do anything to them, try to move them, right click them, etc explorer will freeze and crash. And even after it comes back on i can hear my hard drive accessing data or trying to do something. So my best guess is the files got corrupt during the download when i stopped the download and for some reason wont allow me to touch them. Any ideas?

Windows Explorer Continually Crashes

Windows explorer continually crashes. Program menu icons are non-functional. Desktop icons are blank white squares. Upgraded from vista business to win 7 professional (32-bit). Updated video driver and bios. Desktop goes blank if i right-click and "refresh". Programs will only run if i know the executable filename and use "run. "

Hardware is lenovo t60p notebook with 3 gb ram. Ati radeon firegl 5250 card, for which there is no windows 7 driver available, so i ran latest driver after using "compatibility checker", which applied xp service pack 2 settings to it. Have tried various other video drivers to no avail. Any workaround? Wrote to lenovo and ati. Notebook is barely 2 years old. There are win 7 drivers for older and lesser radeon firegl cards.

Explorer.exe Crashes And Reopens

Win7 explorer.exe problem my system is win7 home premium, 32 bits. Laptop is lenovo x201, i5, 2g memory. The problem is the explorer.exe stops responding after working for 2-3 hours (i just open several pdf files, word, excel, etc, nothing too heavy), and the clock stops, file folders and programs cannot be opened. And i have to use the task manager to terminate the explorer.exe process and start a new one to get it function again. I wondered if anyone can tell me what the problem is and how to fix it.

Usb Thumb Drive Crashes Explorer

I have a usb thumb drive that i use to store lotus notes mail id's on as a backup protocol. The usb drive has been functioning on my machine for over a year until recently. I connect my thumb drive in and attempt to browse the contents through windows explorer. As soon as i click the drive, the window freezes. The only way to unfreeze the machine is to kill explorer.exe and restart the process or just simply pull the thumb drive out. I've attempted to assign the device a new drive letter through cpu management but the shell ultimately freezes when the drive is inserted.

The drive works fine in multiple other machines. I've tested the drive in multiple usb ports on the affected pc and still the same issue. I've tested with other thumb drives on my machine and they work flawlessly. I ended up backing all the media up on another machine and tried reformatting the usb drive to fat32. The thumb drive still crashes windows explorer.
 
Does anyone have any other ideas where to go?

Media Player 12 Crashes Whenever Try To Play A File

Hi, been there, tried that, still no joy. Used "method 1" and "method 2" i found here. Downloaded a load of new codecs. Updated video drivers. Turned off hardware acceleration, turned it back on again. Wmp still crashes whenever i try to play a file. I cam open wmp, and even see the library items. Just can't play them. I have win 7 home premium 32 bit.

Athlon 4000+, 2 gb ram, geforce 6800gt video card. Wmp works fine on the other pc (lesser spec and same card). I suspect something is corrupted in my version of win 7. Any suggestions gratefully received, i have downloaded vlc, but i just want to get this long-standing problem sorted. Iirc, wmp 12 has never run correctly on this machine.

X86 File - Internet Explorer 8 Will Not Work

I have recently bought windows 7 and installed it and i have ran into a few problems. First my system is a 64-bit system and i have x86-files.

1) here is my main problem internet explorer 8 will not work when it is started from the x86 file. However, if i start internet explorer from my x64 file it will work correctly.

2) i have no idea how to uninstall the x86 file of internet explorer 8 so that i can reinstall it. When ever i attempt to uninstall it tells me that trusted installer is stopping me.

More information. I have other programs saved on x84 files and they work fine example: microsoft office, adobe, etc. So i'm wondering if there is not a problem with the internet explorer 8 file.

Here is my question how can i uninstall the x84 file of internet explorer so that i can reinstall it.

I found out some more information. I found out how to turn ie8 but i still dont know how to uninstall the program here is the website that showed me how to turn it off: www.Digitaltech.co. Cc/504/how-to-uninstallremove-internet-explorer-8-from-windows-7-build-7048/

Replacing Explorer.exe File For Themes

I downloaded a new theme for windows 7, however, i am nervous about replacing the explorer.exe file as instructed. By default, i would think that's a bad idea. But since i'm still learning my way around windows 7, i'm not sure if this is supported as i can't seem to find anything on microsoft's site saying that it's acceptable or not. Has anyone done this when installing new themes in windows 7?

Full File Address In Folder Explorer Bar

How to show full file address in folder explorer bar in windows 7? Is it possible to make the address show similar to xp (c:program filesadobe. )? It's extremely confusing as it is now, especially when in a mapped drive (i would expect the base level to show the mapped drive rather than "computer").

Explorer Will Not Copy 8gb Iso Image File To External Drive

Windows explorer will not copy an 8gb iso image file to an external drive with 185gb of free space says file is too large for the destination file system. I tried copying an 8gb iso image file to an external drive with 185gb of free space and windows explorer keeps giving me the message "file is too large for the destination file system".

Then i tried copying the same file to a separate partition on my hard drive and it worked smoothly. I also tried copying a folder containing the sae content and about the same size and it also copied easily. I don't understand why it will not copy the 8gb iso file. By the way i am using windows 7 ultimate.

Youtube Video Crashes

Youtube video crashes in windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit, using flash player 9 or 10, videos play in chrome just fine. I have 1gb ati 5770 vapor video card, intel system board, i5, 4 gb ram. I have tried both windows 7 64 and 32 bit to no avail. The screen flickers and system reboots.

If i disable hardware acceleration in flash. It is more stable, but video quality suffers. Windows is sending the memory dumps, but no solution is available.

Display Driver Crashes

I use a 6 months old xps dell 8000 with windows 7, 64 bit, with an nvidia geoforce gt220 video card. 1 or 2 times a day the monitor goes black and then restores with a message "display driver has stopped responding and recovered. Display driver nvidia windows kernel mode driver ?" This continues to happen for no reason, even though dell has replaced my video card 3 times. With dell customer service help i uninstalled and reinstalled the current drivers from the dell site previous drivers downloaded from the  nvidia site caused other problems which have been resolved. I would appreciate any guidance in resolving this issue which neither dell or nvidia want to claim as their fault.

Win 7 Crashes After Any Update

Ok, so i put w7 disc in computer, restart it for booting and installing and there in loading shows blue screen. Then i tried to restart computer again, this time success. Everything looks fine now, i can restart computer and do almost everything, all is working fine. Then i discovered that when i make some automatic update (even sound driver and/or security updates) after restart it crashes, loads the loading picture, screen is starting to be blank, mouse appears on screen and then suddenly it restarts. After restart it gives 2 choices between to run repair computer or start windows normal.

If i choose start windows normal effect is the same - restart before desktop should appear. If i choose repair computer it is scanning something, then when it's done computer need to be restarted, and windows still doesn't work - makes restart before desktop should appear. If i try to repair again, it says that it don't know how to repair it, do i want to send info to ms. I send it from safe mod, because am' on router.

Update Crashes Computer

I have a lenovo thinkpad t400 and running vista business sp2 32bit. I have this problem since october, it seems that after i have install some window update, my computer will sometime freeze and hang either at  the window login page or when it's in the window, so i have to hard reset my computer. An other problem is after i've done the update, my laptop cannot use the thinkpad thinkvantage software such as rescure and recovery to create back. My laptop will hang as if i try to create a back up.

I have try to reset my laptop back to factory setting. At that point, my laptop was able to use to use the thinkvantage software. But again, when i install the window update. It happen again.

I have called up lenovo, they said this is more like a window issue rather then lenovo issue, so they've ask me to contact microsoft. But i hv try eamil them a few times. And they never got back to me.

Also, i have try to use the online chat thing to make contact during office hour, but for some reason, they said my product key for window doesnt work. So i wonder what is happening.

Crashes On Sims And Hp Games

I have played sims 3 and hp games on my vista without any problems until recently. I installed the new sims 3 ambitions and it worked fine. I let my 12 year old sister on to play and as soon as she got on, it crashed (just sims). I figured it was a fluke and started sims again, she was able to play without any problems. Unfortunately, she left sims on my computer for 6 hours while we were out and i didn't find out until later. The next day, i got on sims and after about 15 minutes it crashed on me.

I tried again, same thing. I restarted my computer and tried again. Now, after about 3 minutes on sims the entire computer shuts off. I figured it was just a sims thing and tried to get on my hp games. After about 5 minutes on that my computer shut off. This only happens on games and i am afraid that the video card is messed up.

Win 7 Crashes Randomly

Recently my win 7x64 pro started crashing randomly (and now it crashes extremely often, but still at random) like if you pulled the plug. No bsod, no reboot, no crash-dump, nothing. The system only tells me that it didn't shut down properly.

The pc is a asus aspire m7711 (core2quad q8300, 8gb ram, geforce gt130), nothing clocked, no modifications. I've updated win, updated all drivers (except the ms-teredo-tunneling software, for the win update can't find any driver), turned off several stuff in the hardware manager, that could cause the problem and finally reinstalled win 7 it still crashes, sometimes just a few min after i turned it on but in safe mode the pc is stable. It only crashed once, that was some time ago and in user mode it crashed about 80 times in a week.

And the pc still has warranty, so i won't void it by opening the case. I see this as the last option, because i want to know what causes the problem.

Office 2007 Crashes

Since updating to windows 7 ultimate, i find my office 2007 apps keep stalling, freezing and crashing; windows explorer also keeps having the same issue. It happens when i highlight and copy and try to paste; when i highlight a selected section of text; when i try to drag ppt pictures; when i try to edit excel documents; and when i am on the internet with ie8.

The consistency of the crashes seems to vary. It does not always happen, but of late it has become more consistent. I have read posts on this and find that many people say they are having the same issues.

Pc Crashes And Automatically Restarts

Original title: pc has become massively unstable when i first installed windows 7 my dell desktop was reinvigorated and ran like a fresh young athlete it woke fast and went back to sleep as quickly.

However this is but a distant memory as my once lithe machine is now nothing more than a grumpy unpredictable demon.

My problems are not measured in days or hours my problems can best be grouped in minutes.

1. The machine will simply re-start sometimes i get a warning more often i do not with absolutely no explanation.

2. Firefox 3. 6 crashes normally within minutes of loading, once it starts crashing there is nothing that will prevent it.

3. Chrome crashes normally within minutes of loading, once it starts crashing there is nothing that will prevent it.

4. Internet explorer crashes normally within minutes of loading; once it starts crashing there is nothing that will prevent it.

5. Windows desktop manager is either corrupt or just plain angry as it crashes without warning or seeming reason.

Anyone with any suggestions as to where to start looking for the problem, or better still a solution will be listened to with my full attention! The sooner the better please as one more week of this and i am going back to xp pro!

Win 7 Boot Crashes

I have a problem again. The first time it happened i just re-installed windows, but now i don't wan't to do that. I want to fix the problem. And the problem is that, when i start my computer, after the bios post screen, it ends on a black screen. It doesn't show the windows flag (logon) nor let me press f8 for more options. It just frozes in black.

I tryed putting my installation disk and using the recovery utilities. The first time it said that there was a problem with the a start-up thing. Then asked for reset but nothing. I use the installation disk again and tryed loading a previous state. Repairing the strt-up (no error found). But the point is that my laptop won't boot.

For more information: my os is windows 7 professional x86. Fresh installation (formated the disk before install). I've been using it for a while before this to happen. I have office 2010 professional plus beta and visual studio 2010 rc. Note: the recovery said my *** update was yesterday almost at 12 am, and it was something about a %msft% .net 1. 0. 0. 85 (don't remember the exact number though i thinks it may be that). Anyway, restoring didn't work for me this time.
Any help so i don't need to install windows and all my apps again?
