Problem (trying to be in order)
 
1.Task Panes in all Explore windows either do not appear or they are there at boot and then disappears later.
 
2. The Network and volume icons don't stay on the task bar...See problem above the task panes are showing in explorer window at boot. I right click properties to check mark the volume and networking icon. They appear just fine. I then open an explorer window and the Task Pane is gone. if I don't check off on  the volume and network icons right off the bat the task pane hangs around for awhile.
 
3.At boot I open the control panel click on personalize it's fine.  After running the computer awhile browsing looking at PDF's I click on control panel,  personalize and only get a white explorer window all icon respond the same.I should say it can be My Computer Network any of them in the start menu or any explorer window for that matter.
 
I can open up task manager stop the process explorer.exe. Restart with new task Fixed. But it will not hold. 
 
 
 I have found a lot of fixes close to my problem and tried them. To no avail. I have one that I wanted to show you.
 
net stop readyboost
net stop slsvc
net start slsvc
net start readyboost
@cls
 
 
Put this in a bat file and executed it haven't done anymore with it until I get some real advise directed at these nonspecific/specific issues
 
Rebooted and went through a system recovery attempted repairs and got restart. 
 
I have run CClearner to keep my Internet browsers clean. I do disk clean up on a regular basis. I have defraged my hard drive. ! don't have a lot of disk space. This computer was working fine and then all of the sudden.
 
I need some advice please.Gosh i hope I explained this with enough details I'm here to give more info.
Thanks in advance.
 
Hello I am looking at process explorer from your site. I will see if i can learn anything from this. I also have read that the Service Shell Hardware Detection should be turned off.......there are so many things to read that I'm afraid i will just make this worse...if i don't get a base starting point. Thanks

What % of space is left on the HDD? If it's less than 5 or 10 percent, the machine can have strange problems.

 

When did you last run an AV scan?

Thirty percent free space is passable.

What service pack are you running?

How much RAM are you running?

Make /model of PC?

Windows Vista Business 32-bit SP2

Dell Vostro 200

Intel Pentium E2160 @ 1.80GHz 52 °C
Conroe 65nm Technology

2.00GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 332MHz (5-5-5-15)

I ran a scan with Malwarebytes and found a few things but nothing that was a big concern all Non-Malware 

I've gotten my Windows update to work all the old updates are no longer listed now. (.Again when I can open it.)

I also had to fix my system restore it had no shadow copies I believe when I can open it it's working fine

 

I don't know if this will help.

Perhaps the  SHELL32.dll has corrupted. See this... http://dll-repair-tools.com/dll-files/what-is-shell32dll .
