I'm on an Inspiron 6000 running Windows XP Professional

"Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close
We are sorry for this problem"

Every time I boot up I get this error within 20 seconds.

Windows will then reset and give me the same error over and over until I force the computer off by pressing the power button.

Error signture:
AppName: Explorer.exe
AppVer: 6.0.2900.5512
ModName: msctf.dll
ModVer: 5.1.2600.5512
offset: 0002fec5

I also see explorer.exe application error
0x7474fec6 performance memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "written".

I also get:
Microsoft intel type pro
Microsoft inteltype pro has encountered a problem and needs to close.

and

Intel Framework MFC Application.
Intel Framework MFC Application has encountered a problem and needs to close.

and

Blue screen of death
Stop: 0x000000f4 (0x00000003, 0x869873c8, 0x8698753c, 0x805fb1d6)

When troubles began, and I could still operate in normal made (not safe mode) I ran CCleaner and AVG.

When I became limited to safe mode today, i tried clearing out some disk space by deleting some old files, uninstalled several programs (AVG, for example) and ran disc defragmentaion. I also tried to restore the system to the last functioning date.

I can operate in safe mode, generally. But sometimes I'll even get the above explorer error and have to shut down there too. Help!!!

Go to disk management...take a screenshot and attach it in your next post.

Let's try this.

Download/install BlueScreenView, http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html.

Double-click BlueScreenView.exe file.

When scanning is done, Edit/Select All...then File/Save Selected Items.

Save the report as BSOD.txt.

Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content and paste it into your next reply.

Louis,

2 questions:

1-Not sure what you mean by "Go to disk management...take a screenshot" Can you walk me through this?

2-I downloaded blue screen view and installed it on the problem computer. When I open the program, it is blank. I cannot find a "scan" command in the menu. Am I missing somthing?

I'm afraid to speak too soon, but it seems as though the "disable language bar" solution did the trick. I was able to work on normal mode in a wordperfect document for 40 minutes without an error or crash. I'm shutting down for the night, but we'll see how things look in the morning.

I think the problem is with a certain type of program in the folder you are opening.
