Question about PC Laptops

1 Answer

Windows Explorer is not responding

The program freezes up all the time and is driving me nuts. I have searched and even reinstalled and ran RegCure which I read was supposed to help this problem. It didn't. I have a Toshiba Satellite A135, S4727. I recently had to reinstall the hard drive from disk due to malware or something I encountered. I don't know is the disk does not have all the info on it or what. It came from Toshiba when I ordered it. Thank you for any help you can give me.
Warmly,
Sharon Taylor

    Just one question, When you said Internet Explorer 6 normally crashes: Internet Explorer: Get It Now, I am not sure what you meant. Does Internet Explorer: Get It Now crash too? I did download Foxfire and it worked...for now....Thank you. I am getting used to it instead of Internet Explorer where I keep my favorites. Just a bit different but works great. Thanks for the help.
    MERRY CHRISTMAS

    I have one question I am unclear about. When you said Internet Explorer 6 normally crashes: Internet Explorer: Get It Now, I am not sure what you meant after crashes: Internet Explorer: Get It Now. Am I to download it through the Get It Now and it doesn't crash?

    I did download Foxfire and it is working well. I just have to get used to Foxfire. It's a bit different from Internet Explorer. But I would like clarity on what you said above for my knowledge base. Thanks for helping me fix my problem. You guys are great!!!!

Regcure can fix minor ptoblem to the registry , but it is not of any use against virused or problems caused from spyware.

If you reinstalled windows, Update Internet Explorer, Internet Explorer 6 normally crashes: Internet Explorer: Get It Now.

If IE keeps crashing, use Firefox, it is much better.

    My computer will only go as far as the password, then (explorer.exe - unable to locate... ) this application has failed to start because BROWSEUI.dll was not found, Re-installing the application may...


    try hitting control>shift>escape at the same time to bring up task manager. then, go to the task manager "file" tab, and select "run" type in "explorer" and hit enter. if windows does not open, then you will have to reinstall explorer.exe in your windows folder.

    find a computer with the same version of windows as your own, and hook up your hard drive as an external or secondary drive in that machine. copy the file "explorer.exe" from the windows folder on that computer to the windows folder of your laptop drive.

    if that doesnt wortk, you will have to find some sort of registry repair utility that can be booted, i.e. ran without windows. or, perhqaps, you have blocked yourself out of the windows folder with permissions or group policy...

    youll prolly have to reinstall windows in the end, cause explorer.exe doesnt usually disapear unless there are other problems

    browser.dll can also be reinstalled, it basically is just needed for internet explorer.

    Computer freezes when trying to access My Computer in any program


    Could be a program running in background. Try to go to msconfig ( click on start, run, and type msconfig). On the startup items, disable all and reboot. See if the performance improves. If it does, enable startup program on msconfig one by one and reboot. to check what startup item is causing the slow performance. If it does not improve, might be an unnecessary driver for the system. Reinstall windows xp.

    Post Boot Freeze


    It freezes because one of the programs set to start at boot crashes. To identify which immediately after booting open Task Manager and look at the processes - one should reach 99% CPU use. Once you have found it stop it from launching at boot or just uninstall it.

    It keeps freezing.


    Sounds like your is overheating. You might want to make sure your CPU fan is spinning. Another good thing you can do is download a little program called speedfan http://www.filehippo.com/download_speedfan/
    this will tell you the internal temp of your processor and hard drives and if your fans are running. If the fans are running and the cpu is staying cool, I would then do a full bios test on the hard drive itself as well as a chkdsk /x through a command prompt on the hard drive (from safe mode). Let me know if these don't resolve the issue.
