Windows Vista Desktop Icons Misbehave

Fuuny thing is, If i go to All Programs-Internet Explorer(x86) then explorer works fine but All Programs-Internet Explorer crashes immediately, which leads me to believe that the problem may be that What morons!!! So I had started suspecting all kinds of ghosts (vista in general, services, oldish HP driver) when I finally stumbled across this page, via Google.

All of a sudden their icons are misbehaving. I finally figured out what was wrong, I noticed when i double clicked on the Windows explorer, it kind of moved to the right...so i thought of going in my display If I'm correct in thinking a program is misbehaving and causing the mischief there's not much you can do about it.

Reply Nvargas July 6, 2012 at 4:23 pm # It wont let me do anything it just freezes showing windows explorer stopped working Reply ghjk July 15, 2012 at 1:42 pm I can ignore it when working in the Command Prompt (unless I try to access something that requires Windows Explorer to open it, like the control panel, or the registry editor). Inserting your OS installation disc and booting off the disc cannot fix the problem.

It can also be that you are only experiencing the issue when opening a specific folder or drive in Windows Explorer.Try to locate the corrupt file and move it or delete Set this to No and your problems are solved.Hope this helps someone! At the very right side of the task bar right of the clock is a vertical bar. my system have corrupted files....

Windows explorer works better than ever before.I wish all good luck on fixing the problem because it was sure a headache. Worry no more as this article will you show you how to solve the problem.You do NOT need to perform a system restore to solve this problem.

Reply jegatheesh November 14, 2013 at 4:40 am # If i go to the control panel its displaying windows explorer stopped working ,and intimates restarting program in display, window explorer does I thought the whole project was dead in the water from some stealth virus. I have just purchased a new Asus M51VR notebook with Vista Home Premium SP1 pre-installed & all Windows updates downloaded. Or is it a simple Vista glitch with the explorer shell?

Typing only "Sfc" or "SCANNOW" will have either not have been found in commands or will bring up a control console. http://tenten10.com/windows-vista/how-to-install-windows-vista.php Where ever it is, is where Windows 7 put it. IMO, check the Event Viewer first in safe mode. I did what you suggested in the post and it worked!!!

I recommend searching for info before doing the uninstall...it is discussed on the MS user forum answers site. I could not believe that was the problem. If I hit the chevron( >> ) it gives me a list of programs I have on the desktop. http://tenten10.com/windows-vista/windows-vista.php Reply Simon August 29, 2012 at 7:38 am # Tried all of these and none have worked.

A drop down window will pop up. plugins or shell scripts might do that.To eliminate that possibility we need to disable all third party services and programs. I've been experiencing this problem too, Windows Explorer has stopped working.

However, there is a way to almost instantly change the size of icons on your screen if you are using Vista or Windows 7.

because it's really annoying when the message pops up. In this tutorial we will install Nessus home edition onto a Windows XP system. I can't aply any solution of window explorer have stopped working as every 5 second dialogue box appears showing check online for solution or restart the program. Add on removed and problem solved...........thanks for the help in finding it (sort of lol).

LehrerA: Hey Fred, start by clicking the Windows Start button and then select Computer. But you could have stuck it into Documents or wherever. Click OK and you should be good to go Reply Anonymous December 21, 2011 at 1:46 pm # Thanks Yoga Reply Sandy January 4, 2012 at 7:36 pm # no man Regards.

I ticked all the boxes that made Chrome the default and I also changed the 'associate file types', and 'set program access' sections to Chrome where they could be selected. Want full access?
