Is it just random folders, or certain ones that cause the crash? How long has it been happening? Have you updated/installed something that could have caused the problem?

Give us some background on it.

Stupid EXPLORER you mean (but yeah, it is part of windoze!)

I once had something nearly (but not quite) like this... have you got any scripts running that might hook into explorer? You know what I mean I am sure - customizing maybe - that kinda stuff?

He was right - we need more to go on for this one.... ;)

Tell us your set up, operating system, peripherals, service packs, printer, scanner etc....

Then we might know a solution or a pointer to help.

Maybe some type of Spyware is causing these problems.

Probably something in the service pack thats causing the conflict with pop-up stopper. After all, I doubt pop up stopper was designed to work under sp2!

Turn it off. SP2's version of IE has popup blocking enabled anyway as far as I know.

I'm gonna try that... It just seems to do that on any computer that I use... and computer I've ever owned has always done that... SP2. 1, or just installed... it works fine for months and then it just stops working... Its annoying and because of it, I've developed this bad habit of running everything through run on the start menu...

Can you post a screenshot with a circle around the suposed "folders on the left." I want to be sure I know what you are speaking of.

Thanks!

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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!
