Whenever I try and access Windows Explorer nothing happens. It lights up for a bit like it has been selected but the window never actually opens. Task Manager indicates that Windows Explorer never actually opened. I need an answer to my problem soon because it is essential that I am able to manage my computers files.

I'd try running explorer from task manager. In task manger window, click File > New Task (Run) and type explorer.exe

If that doesn't work, try it in safe mode.
Sincerely,

Brian

It's okay now. Windows Explorer stopped responding the other day so it restarted itself. It started working again so i'm happy. Thankyou.
