Re: problems with explorer.exe (windows xp)
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
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!

Sometimes, while doing some specific work on your PC or browsing the internet, the program you're using suddenly stops responding without any apparent reason. If you hadn't been saving your work regularly, you'll most likely lose it when Windows prompts you to close the program.
There's however a solution that could help you avoid such frustration. Here are the steps to follow in case a program stops responding :
1. Once you encounter such a problem, don't close the program you're using.
2. Open the Task Manager by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Delete.
3. In the "Processes" tab, find "explorer.exe", choose it and click "End Process" on the bottom right.
4. Click "Yes" (Everything you see in the background will disappear but don't panic, it will come back).
5. Click "File" on the top left.
4. Choose "New Task (Run...)"
5. Write "explorer.exe" in the box.
And everything comes back! You can now resume your work...
Please follow the given steps to relaunch the Start Menu and Taskbar:
1. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del or Ctrl + Shift + Esc to bring the Task Manager.
2. Go to Processes TAB
3. Find explorer.exe and select it
4. Click End Process (Button at Bottom Right Corner)
5. Click File Menu and Select New Task (File-->New Task(Run))
6. type in explorer and press ok
This is a problem with older games running on newer hardware. Your computer is TOO good for this game so you have to make a few changes for it to run. First, make sure you have the version of DirectX installed that it says on the box. If you have a REALLY new computer you should have DirectX 11, otherwise you will have 10 or 9. The game probably requires something below that and you should be able to install it directly of the disc. Also, you should try running the game in compatibility mode. If none of this works, try starting the game multiple times, sometimes the glitch doesn't always effect it. If that doesn't work at all, you can try going into the task manager and terminating the explorer.exe process. You should be aware though that this will turn off your desktop, nothing will be lost but when you close the game you will have to go back to the task manager to restart explorer.exe. If you are unable to restart explorer.exe, simply restart your computer and it will restart. Also, close any background applications that you can. I hope this helps and have a nice day!
select Task Manager;
Goto the Processes tab (2nd one)
Find the Internet Explorer process [iexplorer.exe]
right click on it and select End Process Tree
then restart Internet Explorer
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 .
rate if useful please !
When it happens, open the Process Manager with cont/alt/del. Find explorer.exe and kill it.
Then open the process manager again and this time go up to the top and select File, New Task (run) . If there's a drop down list, select explorer.exe if it's there, and click ok. If it's not there, type it in and select ok. Explorer should open normally again without having to restart.
wow so much information to work with :) If you have not restarted your computer then try ctrl alt delete key and make sure your explorer.exe is running.. if not click new task and type in explorer.exe.. If this happens on boot something is crashing explorer.exe.. probably a virus..
