More info please. What OS are you on? Are you getting any errors? Does it just happen in Explorer windows. Does your compuer freeze? How long has this been happening?

i'm on windows XP Sp1a

getting no errors. but different things do happen.

1. when i go into a folder it just shows empty i can click back and go forward and the content will show as normal.

2. that window will crash only that 1, not showing content all over open windows work as normal.

3. other times the full explorer crashes.

4. other times the content shows but does not let me do anything like click or scroll or press button.

yes it happens in explorer windows my documents, program files, a personal folder i have and shizz like tha.

my computer does not freeze i can simply press ctrl alt del bring up the processes and end explorer then start it again.

been happening about a week roughly not too sure

anything to do with ontrack utilities you got installed maybe protected files or crash guarding

some other info i thought i'd add.


when on internet explorer and i click a link that opens a new window it usually crashes same way as a window.

sometimes if a window is open and i click the X it doesnt remove itself from the task bar even tho its closed.

I have to disagree, although sometimes it doesn't work. I have fixed a lot of people with this feature. It is also fully reversable in case it doesn't have the desired effect. It sure is a lot easier than a format an reinstall of the OS. What's the harm in trying it?

Yeah, it doesn't work nearly as well on ME as it does with XP I've noticed. I do tech support for an ISP and the System Restore feature can make it really easy to undo the changes that the customer has usually inflicted upon themselves, but aren't even aware they did it. If System Restore doesn't work then I have to actually do some work. :D

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
