This is a guess - but it might be a corrupted file in the directory or the directory itself might have a problem. Here's what I'd try (no guaranty, but there's no harm in trying other than wasting a few minutes):
1) Empty the folder
2) Move it to another partition
4) Go ahead and move it back if you like
Well, it happens when I start scrolling through it not by just opening it. Could it be that there are too many files for XP to deal with in one folder? I have a P4 2.26, 1GB RAM, 80GB HD. I'll try your these suggestions. Thanks.
yeah that rig should easily be able to handle it... unless you have like GIGS of temp files... you should be able to set the size of temp files so it does not get ridiculously large..
I used to have similar issues whenever I tried to browse... the system would just hang for alittle while and then come back online... and I delete my temp files VERY regularly...
I did an XP repair and it seems to have fixed the probs... I dunno really what I had going on...
um... did you have the problem since day one or is it something that has just recently started up...
my solution for every problem that appears major yet not enough for you to want to reinstall... do repair OR system restore if you think it is corrupt files or conflicts due to something you installed recently
else gimme your rig and you can have pedestrian k6-2 450 at least explorer does not crash
I delete temporary internet files and cookie every day or so. The only reason I came across this problem was that I wanted to save a video file that I watched online, but I couldn't get to it because the site was done in flash so I couldn't do a "save target". I figured it had put it in temporary internet files so I went to find it. Sorted the files by size and started to scroll to the bottom. About halfway down the window closed and explorer crashed.
