Problem When Opening Folder

Does it ONLY happen when you open a folder, and not when you do other things? If so, would that be a memory problem, or an explore.exe prob?

What is WPA? I have downloaded the memtest files but what do i do with them?
Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.gz)
Memtest86+ V1.40 source code (.tar.gz).
Do i have to put everything on cd or what, not sure how to do this?
Can anyone help?

I think Jimi means an SFC /scannow - no ideawhere he got WPA from :confused:

For memtest it is really simple - get a floppy, run the exe, it will make a bootable floppy, put in drive, reboot and go (leave to cook for at least twelve hours to test each 512 MB of RAM I would say)

Gimme reps if I helped :p

If you want to use a cd:
http://www.memtest.org/download/1.40/memtest86+-1.40.iso.zip
Unpack and burn the iso to a cd.

If you want to use a floppy:
http://www.memtest.org/download/1.40/memtest86+-1.40.floppy.zip
Unpack somewhere and run install.bat. The floppy might not be readable by Windows afterwards, but this is ok.

Then just reboot your computer with the cd or floppy in the drive and make sure that the computer boots from either the cd-rom or the floppy drive (this is a setting in BIOS btw). Memtest will start automatically. Start a test and leave it running for a few hours (until it says it's passed at least once anyway).

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
