I am getting a permanent message ... "Windows Explorer Has Stopped Working".

I can't carry out the solutions given on-line because everytime I try to do something the message comes up and everything gets disabled.

I've tried a safe boot and still get the message.

I've run a virus scan which found no problems.

Any ideas please?

Please post the computer model, operating system and IE version next time. Have you tried resetting your IE browser under Internet Options? How about reinstalling IE?

I posted "Windows Explorer", not "Internet Explorer".

i suggest u download an alternative to windows explorer. I downloaded cubicExplorer and registered as default file manager. I had a tough time finding the solution to this. I wasted nearly 2 days behind this. I browsed thoroughly all the suggestion in all the forums. but none worked. Hence I downloaded the alternative. Now I am relieved.

<<i suggest u download an alternative to windows explorer.>>

 

IMO, this is not a solution, just a choice of an alternate file manager.  This clearly cannot be accomplished on this system for this member, based on the reported inability to effectively run Windows.

 

MS reference, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2694911 .

 

I'm curious...if Windows isn't working properly...how did you run a "virus scan"?
