Hello all, I've encountered an interesting problem. I reformated and reinstalled a friends computer (a sony vaio and used the recovery function to restore it to factory settings) and when you have a few folders open, some randomly close. The same thing with internet explorer. They randomly close for no reason, you can be using the computer and the window suddenly closes. It also use to happen before it was restarted. Norton doesn't report any problems and neither does Ad aware or spybot. I suspect its a bug in the vista software but do not know. Please help.

Please check your Event Viewer for errors. Go to Start and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
Click on the arrow by "Windows Logs", then click on the System logfile and check for errors there, then click on the Application logfile and check for errors there also. Let us know what you find.

You can also:
1) Go to Start and type "perfmon /report" (without the quotes) and press Enter to generate a performance report that may/may not show errors.
2) Go to Start and type "perfmon" (without the quotes) to open the Performance Monitor applet, then click on Monitoring Tools and then on Reliability Monitor to get an overview of issues with the system.
