Sounds like you may have some registry issues, more than an iTunes or Explorer issue.

Check out this program - Amust Registry is a great tool for fixing registry problems. It is a fee-charged software, but I think I only paid $20 or so for it. It looks like it is free on the site, but it will make you pay to actually fix everything.

I've used it for YEARS and never had a problem with it; however, make sure to put the Check Mark in BACK UP MY STUFF BEFORE FIXING IT, just in case. :)

Stack overflow at line 194


I need to stop this error message from coming up and am afraid to do the heavy changes to the registry that have been mentioned in other places. Can this be fixed automatically by running another program? I also have the error message regarding security asking for permission to open a less secure widow in a secure surrounfing. Changing Security settings doesn't cause any notable difference even after rebooting..It only happens with internet browsing and when a window is first opened (each time). If directions are simple enough, I can make changes to the registry but 3 pages worth is a bit intimidating. Help. Tom.

Sometimes when I click on the Internet Explorer icon, and error message appears in front of a blank web page. The error message says "Internet Explorer has stopped working. Click to close program". When...


Try a scan with your virus scan, then with a malware scanner, i use Malwarebytes.
I would then use CCleaner, use the registry cleaner also.
This will clean out all your temp files, and remove any registry errors that may be causing IE from starting properly.
You could also use Firefox, or chrome as your browser if this does not fix it

Since upgrade to itunes 9.0.3 used with explorer 7 and windows xp, receive error message 1202 on itunes store when click on any links to subscribe to podcasts or on link to to report a concern


Can try to right click on "redeem" on the Itunes home page. When it gives you a choice to open or copy the link, select "copy this link". Paste it into a new Internet Explorer window and accept the security prompt. It should then load up.

Problem with windows xp


Sometimes it happens in windows XP that you are not able to open drives on your hard disk. When you double click on the drives icons or right click on the drive>>explore in My computer ,the drive does not open.

This problem is generally caused by most of the viruses which infect windows XP system. They block or restrict your access to any of the drives.

But don’t worry this is not a big trouble it can be fixed easily.

Fix:

Normally when a virus infects a windows system which causes a drive opening problem, it automatically creates a file named autorun.inf in the root directory of each drive.

This autorun.inf file is a read only ,hidden and a system file and the folder option is also disabled by the virus. This is deliberately done by the virus in order to protect itself. autorun.inf initiates all the activities that the virus performs when you try to open any drive.



Very simple . virus create some bad registry if you want to solve this problem then delet this registry


[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion­\Explorer\MountPoints2


delete all drive from here

Can't get itunes to work


The error message “The folder iTunes cannot be found or created”. It was referring to the My Music directory that is usually located in the My Documents folder on the partition containing the operating system. The iTunes software creates an iTunes folder in the My Music directory on first start and if that directory is not accessible it will throw the error message and fail to load.
Since this error is related to the My Music folder it is important to check the directory path of that folder in the Windows Registry. This is best done by using the shortcut [Windows R], typing [regedit] and hitting the [enter] key.
The fastest way of location the two locations that contain path information for the My Music folder is to use the search by pressing [F3] and entering [My Music] in the search box. A click on [Find Next] will start the search and reveal the two locations.
The test computer system did not have path information listed at all. This can be changed by double-clicking the My Music key in the Registry and changing the path to an valid path manually.
The two Registry locations that list the My Music path are the following two:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
Make sure both point to a valid path on the system. Once the path has been changed iTunes will create the iTunes folder in that location and start up without this error message.

Please back up your registry before doing this. messing in the registry can make your computer stop functioning.

Make sure you follow the correct registry entry.

Disk is Locked Error


If the My Music folder is in the wrong location or incorrectly assigned in the Windows registry, you may see one of the following error messages:
  • "The folder iTunes is on a locked disk or you do not have write permissions for this folder."
  • "The folder iTunes cannot be found or created and is required. The default location for this folder is inside the Music folder."

If you see one of the above errors, follow these steps to troubleshoot this:
  1. Verify the location of your Windows XP My Music folder. The default location for this folder is
    C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music
    If you do not have this folder at the default location and have not moved it to another location, consider creating one inside your My Documents folder.
  2. Download and install Tweak UI from the Microsoft PowerToys website at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx Note: This utility is for Windows XP only. Please review the system requirements before installing.
  3. Once you have installed Tweak UI, open it from the Start menu.
  4. In the column on the left, click on the plus symbol (+) next to My Computer and select Special Folders. ht1866_01.jpg
  5. In the right pane on the Folderlist, click My Music.
  6. Click the Change Location button. You may see a warning message appear with precautions for changing this setting; after reviewing the message, click Yes. ht1866_02.jpg
  7. In the resulting window, browse for the My Music folder as described in step 1, and click OK. ht1866_03.jpg
  8. Reinstall or open iTunes.
