OS: Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) w/Service Pack 1
Just last night I opened my external hard drive on my computer. When I did, my computer gave me an error message saying that Windows Explorer has stopped working. I then get a message saying that Windows Explorer is restarting. Everything I have open through Windows Explorer then closes, the taskbar disappears, and all the icons on my desktop disappear. After a moment the taskbar and desktop icons reappear. The windows I had open through Windows Explorer do not re-open on their own.
I have had this external hard drive for a couple years now. This is the first problem I have ever had opening it. It's working fine on my laptop, so I don't think it's the hard drive itself. I've run virus checks with Microsoft Security Essentials and ESET Nod32. They found nothing. I hope you can help me.
