Win XP Pro SP3 Explorer.exe problems

My laptop hangs on explorer.exe. Drive light stays on solid. Occasionally, I can get Taskmanager to stop the process (explorer.exe) then open a new instance of it. Most of the time everything just hangs and I have to turn the computer off and restart.

No problem as Firefox is far superior. Download a copy on another computer and copy the exe file to your laptop that has no IE. Run the exe and there you are.

For All XP user Don't Use IE 7.0 & higher version



Applicable for all window XP (all edition, all PCs and Laptops)

Hi there,
If you are getting trouble after the updates of internet explorer..

Then I would suggest you to Roll Back it to the original Internet Explorer (i.e Internet Explorer version 6.0)

Which come up with Installation of Win Xp with Service Pack 2.

Bad Effect due to IE 7.0 or higher version:

Screen hang up, internet freezes abruptly, prominent windows crashes anytime.

So to stop these problems, better to run with lower and safe version of IE:

To remove Internet Explorer 7 from your PC use the following methods

Method 1: Use "Add or Remove Programs" to uninstall Internet Explorer 7

Step 1: Use "Add or Remove Programs" to uninstall Internet Explorer 7

a. Click Start, and then click Run.

b In the Open box, type appwiz.cpl, and then click OK.

c. In the list of programs, click Windows Internet Explorer 7, and then click Remove.

d. Follow the wizard instructions to uninstall Internet Explorer 7. Also remove if any updates under this entry found.

If you cannot uninstall Internet Explorer 7 by using this method, try Method 2.

Method 2: Use Spuninst.exe to uninstall Internet Explorer 7

Run Spuninst.exe to uninstall Internet Explorer 7

a. Click Start, and then click Run.

b. In the Open box, type %windir%\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe, and then click OK.

After you uninstall Internet Explorer 7, double-click the Internet Explorer icon to verify that Internet Explorer 6 is restored.

This will bring up you to run Internet explorer as it come up with the installation kit, which is safe and reliable.

I have n acer laptop when i turn iton ony my wallpape comes on no icons and i can not do nothing with it what do i do


Hi there,

Try to press and hold the Ctrl + Shift + Esc keys on your keyboard, when the taskmanager comes up release the keys.

On the taskmanager Click File -> New Task -> Run
In the box type in explorer.exe you may have to wait a while for the explorer to be loaded.
If the icons comes back successfully open internet explorer and go to http://wwww.bsfwin.notlong.com and the run the file this will reset you explorer.exe shell. When it tells you to restart the computer go ahead and restart.

If the same thing still happens after reboot you may want to check your computer for viruses.

Hope you find this helpful!

Xp pro sp3-after running macfee quick clean. on boot-explorer.exe "the application failed to initialize properly 0xc0150002"


Issue may be a corrupt explorer.exe (The file that actually launches the desktop). There is a lot of discussion on how an AV an bork explorer.exe here and several solutions.
http://www.annoyances.org/exec/forum/winxp/t1061853506
The one I recommend you try 1st is: Fire up the task manager (CTRL+SHIFT+ESC), File, new task, cmd and then c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe from the command prompt (edit the command if you didn't install windows in c:\windows). See if system restore can rescue explorer for you.
If that doesn't work, there are several other flavors of repair possibilities, last of which is reinstalling Windows

I had this XP problem with Norton recent after SP3 got on.
Clean install and no antivirus, straight afterwards a bootable CD with SP3 then I replace already removed Norton with Avast virus scanner.
Superfast, all problems I ever had gone. Likely the scanner.
