Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
So, my explorer.exe flashes. It never stops. By that i mean my desktop start menu, icons, and windows disappear, then it reboots and all the windows are closed. Programs don't close, only windows. Does anyone have ANY suggestions?
(Can't get my computer specs at the moment, because My Computer won't stay open long enough. Its a laptop.. 1 gig of ram... good enough to play most online games.)
Ok here is a possible solution.
1) Start computer and hold down the F8 button unless it gives you a stuck key error then you will have to catch your computer right before it boots and hit F8
2) Now go into Safe Mode this should get you into your computer so that you now can do something (even if its wrong!) naa wouldnt let that happen
3) Now when you get there go into start and programs then I belive it to be accessories and click on run "msconfig" this will bring up a screen with 3 radio buttons click on selective startup.
4) uncheck all the boxes but this is important do not mess with the boot.ini switch if you do you'll be calling microsoft and paying for an incedent. (not cheap)
6) You're couputer screen is gonna look really bad but hopefully it booted ok and is working ok besides looking like &$**@
7) Go back to run and run msconfig again rechecking one box
9) Keep doing this till the error comes back then you will see the tab for the file that is causing the problems. Once again you are presented with a whole lot of checkboxes and it is the same procedure.
10) Now that you know what file is giving you all of these problems google it find out what program it goes with and either reinstall it or if it is Microsoft there is a good chance that it is a service pack file that did not go in correctly you can find the file at support.microsoft.com or download.microsoft.com
11) Now gracefully drop the computer and kick for the literal boot.

Try rebooting your computer then tapping F8 and clicking the "Last known good configuration (advanced)" option.. but that will only work if your computer worked great and it happened suddenly
