How to Restore Disabled Folder Pane in Windows Explorer


Problem:
When you open Windows Explorer, the left hand Folders pane is disabled or gray or blank and the folder tree on left is not available.

Cause:
There may be an error in the registry. A required system file is missing or an incorrect version.

Solutions:
Close Windows Explorer.
Start the Registry Editor (click Start, Run, type regedit and click OK).

Expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main.
In the right-hand pane, locate the value named ExplorerBar. If present, delete it.
Restart Windows Explorer. If this does not resolve the issue,
The correct solution depends on the version of Internet Explorer that is installed on the computer.Internet Explorer 5.5 or lower
The preferred solution for computers with Internet Explorer 5.5 or lower is to upgrade to the latest version of Internet Explorer.
If this is not possible:
Open the folder C:\Windows\System. Check that the file browseui.dll is present. If it is not present, restore this file.
Internet Explorer 6
Open the folder C:\Windows\System. Check that the file shdocvw.dll is present. If it is not present, restore this file.
Open a command prompt.
Enter the command cd \Windows\System
Verify that the command prompt shows C:\Windows\System.

Enter the command regsvr32 /i shdocvw.dll.
Enter the command regsvr32 /i browseui.dll.

A message will appear confirming the successful registration of the files.

Now restart the sytem and confirm the problem is solved.

The device Generic Volume cannot be stopped right now. try stopping the device again later. on Window XP


If you tried to stop your external hard drive with it open in Windows Explorer, You will get this message. You cannot disconnect the drive in this condition. Even if you close Windows Explorer after, Windows still thinks it is open. The best thing to do, is restart Windows and when the screen goes black, shut the power off to the external drive or disconnect the USB cable. Disconnecting in any other way causes Windows to have problems with USB devices in the future.

Explorer.exe Application error


Hi bj_bhuvnesh,

 Whenever internet explorer crashed, you would see the overwritten message.The best option would be to upgrade the browser if you are not using IE 8. You can also copy or format and again install the windows. Create a back up and than format the drive in which you have installed windows files.
Check the below mentioned :-

I don't know if this is the right way to fix this but: I realized that G is the drive letter given to my external drive. All I did was plug it in so the computer could "find a drive G:\" and it worked great!

Windows explorer


Hi,

Bring up the Start Menu, click on Run. Type Command and hit Enter.

In this command windows type

chkdsk /f /x d:

This will run a disk integrity check of this partition and see if there aren't crosslinked file entries, which has a 50 50 chance of being your problem.

Restart when done and see if this is resolved.

If it isn't comment back to this thread and we'll take it to the next step.

Click File. 5. Point to New, and then click Folder. 6. Give the new folder a name (My Faxes, for example) and press Enter. 7. Close Windows Explorer.
