Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
Here's how to reproduce the problem:
1) Startup the computer from shutdown state.
2) Boot into Windows Vista, login as myself
3) Right-click on Start, click explore
5) Nothing. Ever. Happens.
It's like explore is hanging int he background. If I do something like a search then the explore window pops open behind it and works fine for the rest of the session.
Please help, thanks!
