You might have a case of spyware on your system! But that's a maybe! Its telling you "Explorer.exe not responding" message probably cause explorer.exe is busy! The reason i think its spyware is cause the problem started when you first connected to internet(spyware breeding ground) Explorer.exe is the main Windows Shell (Start menu, desktop and so forth). When you log in to your computer, it starts and runs until either you log off or shutdown! Try getting an anti-spyware solutions if you don't have one already! try AVG Anti-spyware, its pretty good! Install it, update it and do a scan. If that doesn't help then I might need more information. 1.)Go to majorgeeks.com 2.)download this utility - HijackThis http://www.majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=3155 3.)double click on it(it extracts) 4.)go to c:\program files\hijackthis\ Doubleclick on the Hijackthis.exe 5.)Click ok at the warning 6.)Click on Do A system Scan and Save a log file 7.)When the log file pops up in notepad, Select All, copy, and Post it back to this Post! 8.)Close the hijackthis! Warning! Be careful with the hijackthis program! don't do anything else with it unless of course you know what you are doing! Good Luck! Regards, Babb Good Luck, Babb

    Well, a re-install most of the time always works, just remember to back-up your data!

    However not only spyware itself can cause the explorer.exe to hang! Some other good applications might be the culprit. Cause explorer is having difficulty closing them down!

    You can set this registry tweak to see if that helps:

    HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop
    AutoEndTasks=1

    or download a script here:http://www.aumha.org/downloads/autoend.z...
    exract then double click on the file autoend.reg

    If that doesn't works then i guess you can go ahead with the re-install.

    Regards,
    Armando

Explorer.exe is failing.


Hi.
I had this problem before with my Windows Xp professional . in fact i could solve the problem only by making a new formatting to my computer . and i installed my Xp pro again .
If your Vista is not the original one , then you have to disable the Automatic updates to prevent this to happen again .

Hi hichris_4u

You should be able to replace the Explorer.exe. Type in the command prompt expand C:\I386\explorer.ex_ %systemroot%\explorer.exe This will expand a new copy to the windows directory.

You should also download a new version of SP2 and reinstall it. You also could download a clean copy of SP2 Click the Download button. The file is 266MB. Create a folder on the C:\ root called SP2 and download it there. Create another folder called SP2 files now at a command prompt type C:\SP2\WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe /x it’ll ask you to specify an directory so point it to the SP2 Files folder and let it extract there. Now type in the command prompt expand C:\SP2 Files\I386\explorer.ex_ %systemroot%\explorer.exe to expand a new copy to the windows directory.

If you get an error on destination, try expand C:\SP2 Files\I386\explorer.ex_ c:\windows\explorer.exe

If you expanding fron the I386 from the C:\ root try expand C:\I386\explorer.ex_ c:\windows\explorer.exe

If all fails, try and download SP2 onto another machine and then burn it to a CD for install.

Good Luck,

Mark

Explorer.exe Application error in Windows XP Professional SP2


This could be a memory problem or a problem with the OS (XP). If you can boot the original XP CD like your doing an install then it's not a memory problem more the likely. Can you boot your XP CD?
