Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close.
AppName: explorer.exe AppVer: 6.0.2900.5512 ModName: explorer.exe
ModVer: 6.0.2900.5512 Offset: 00011900
after which it closes, all the icons disappear from the desktop momentarily, and the taskbar reloads. This usually happens the first three or four times I try to enter My Documents, so that I can get around it by retrying until it stops. However, it's not that rare for the first error message to be followed by this:
You chose to end the nonresponsive program Windows Explorer
szAppName: explorer.exe szAppVer: 6.0.2900.5512 szModName: hungapp szModVer: 0.0.0.0 offset: 00000000
followed by a Dr Watson Post Mortem Debugger has encountered a problem and needs to close.
I've actually had this problem for quite a long time now and just recently I started getting this:
Windows DEP (data execution prevention) has closed the program Windows Explorer.exe
I have no idea what's going on here. I have run various scans (Avira, Malware Bytes, Windows Defender, Ad Aware) but they found nothing. Has anyone else experienced this or have any idea what it might be?
I would be very grateful for any help or insight.
