Application Explorer.exe (oxc0000022) error

Original title: Explorer.exe application (oxc0000022) after an abnormal shutdown on Vista error

After my child presses the button market stop on my Control Strip, I rebooted my computer and got this message. I use Windows Vista! Application error Explorer.exe (oxc0000022), I tried the system restore to an earlier date, but I still could not load windows except Mode without failure. How can I solve this problem?



1st thing to try is a restoration of the system in safe mode

Windows Vista

Using the F8 method:

  1. Restart your computer.
  2. When the computer starts, you will see your computer hardware are listed. When you see this information begins to tap theF8 key repeatedly until you are presented with theBoot Options Advanced Windows Vista.
  3. Select the Safe Mode option with the arrow keys.
  4. Then press enter on your keyboard to start mode without failure of Vista.
  5. To start Windows, you'll be a typical logon screen. Connect to your computer and Vista goes into safe mode.
  6. Do whatever tasks you need and when you are done, reboot to return to normal mode.

If that does not read this information

the link below is how to download and get a vista disk startup repair, which you can start from the

Here's how to use startup repair system restore command prompt, etc. to bleepingcomputers link below

to boot from the dvd drive to be able to you will see a way to get into the bios Setup at the bottom of the screen or command menu start

It would be F2 or delete etc to enter the BIOS or F12 etc. for the start menu

    Any manufacturer should provide a means of recovery, it is more often to another partition on the hard drive which is accessible at startup. See your documentation for instructions to access or post with the brand and model of your system for instructions.

    As for the error, it means that you have a corrupted profile and these cannot be fixed. What you need to do is to connect to another administrator account and create one for yourself. Log in there and copy your personal files before deleting the original. The process is described in this article:

  • Error message: explorer.exe (exception error: 0xc0000005)

    Hi all

    Hoping someone can give me a little more insight on this error.

    I have a PC that is running Server 2008 R2. Recently, Windows Explorer has crashed on me. Here's the info I pulled from Event Viewer:

    [code] The failing application name: Explorer.EXE, version: 6.1.7601.17514, time stamp: 0x4ce7a144
    The failed module name: nvui.dll, version:, time stamp: 0x56ab2bcc
    Exception code: 0xc0000005
    Offset: 0x00000000000248d6

    The failing application path: C:\Windows\Explorer.EXE
    Path of the failing module: C:\Program NVIDIA Corporation\Display\nvui.dll
    Report I would be: 0b33d046-0fb4-11e6-acfc-00235482096a [/ code]

    Then it happened again:

    [code] The failing application name: Explorer.EXE, version: 6.1.7601.17514, time stamp: 0x4ce7a144
    Name of the failed module: SHELL32.dll, version: 6.1.7601.18952, time stamp: 0x55c3a0ed

    Report I would be: dcf1f04b-0fb4-11e6-acfc-00235482096a [/ code]

    In the first crash, I see the path of the failing module as a DLL from NVidia, but the second is something different. I ran sfc/scannow, and he sent back a message saying that he 'finds corrupted files, but could not solve some of them. I searched a bit and found the following:

    Would one of these something I could do to fix corrupted files? Is there something else I'm missing with these crash reports?

    Any help/insight would be appreciated. Thank you!

  • [Moved] Explorer.exe "Material error" - Vostro 270

    I know that this seems to be an error in the software, but I can't seem to find any info on why this error pops up.

    Windows 8, 64 b, when you start go to pop - up box: Explorer.exe (top) then said to material error.  Thought of uninstalled BitDefender which was the question, was locked (blue screen with the sad face) when I was on firefox; Uninstalled and installed the nightly FF.

    Any help?


    It wasn't an infection tdl3.  I understood the question when I went to reformat the hard drive.  It was a memory problem.  I had thrown Corsair after memory market from the beginning and it didn't work well.  When I went to reformat, I received a memory error message, open a chat with Dell support session and finally tried memory on another box.  The strange thing is that all diagnostics system says everything was fine until what I reformatted.

  • Explorer.exe shows error msg: "this file has no program associated with him...". »

    PROBLEM: Clicking on Windows 'Explorer.exe' (or the shortcut of the program itself) causes the following error msg (under the title: "explorer.exe"): "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action."  "Please install a program or, if such is already installed, create an association in the default programs control panel".

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Work around successful - even if it's not ideal - is the following: when I right click on the shortcut of windows Explorer, a list of folders "frequent" previously selected appears.   When I chose one, windows Explorer opens properly and points to the selected folder.   From there on, can I nagivate to any other directory/folder correctly.

    I fear, however, as to why the shortcut/program file themselves are causing the error message.

    I get the same error (this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action.)  Please install a program or, if such is already installed, create an association in the default programs control panel)

    More funny thing is that I can click on computer and Explorer works very well.  The shortcut on the taskbar and Windows Explorer under the accessories section are affected in this way.  All other files with exe extensions seem to work well.  I'm running Windows 7 32-bit version.

    Not sure what it is yet, but you know what it is not.

    I don't know what to think of your permissions problem, but if records are read-only and not meant to be, are you not able to change the folder properties and what happens when you try to do?

    When the Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer) is wrong (especially when right click), begin to suspect third-party add-ons explore extension.

    Those who would be the Explorer extensions that do not belong to Microsoft.  This means that extensions that you have added.  Solution Explorer extensions are generally well and installation of certain applications will install extensions from Explorer solutions for you, give you a choice and sometimes they can be added without your knowledge when you install the new software.

    Solution Explorer extensions are sometimes added as a new right-click option, you see on folders and files (like the scan of this file, open that file, play this song).

    If there is something in particular that you do during exploration that you know will be the cause of the problem, which will help focus on the problem and the help that you suddenly know, when you have found and corrected.  If you can get there when you want it, make an adjustment and then there is no message the next time you don't do anything, you do, you have found and corrected.

    First of all you need a way to see what modules explore you have installed now and a way to turn them off (not uninstall them) so you can understand that we are at the origin of the problem.  You can have a lot of extensions not installed Microsoft don't even know you about.

    Download ShellExView here to see what Explorer extensions you have loaded:


    ShellExView does not install anything on your computer, simply of runs and displays.

    After launching ShellExView, under Options, choose "Mark non-Microsoft Extensions" and extensions not Microsoft will be pink, clear, but on some systems which is a difficult color to see, so click on display, choose the columns and move the column Microsoft closer to the top, so you can see on your screen without having to scroll left and right.

    Click on the column header for Microsoft sort display (by clicking on the column of Microsoft) then all the non Microsoft extensions are on top and easy to see.

    Non-Microsoft extensions would be things you have added (non-Microsoft) and are what you should be suspect.

    You can also Google the name of a suspect add-on and see if there is any success on the mistakes of the DEP and what other people have done about it.
    You can Google something like:

    Explorer XP crashing (you must fill in the name of add your suspect on.)

    See what kind of search results hits you get and are looking for solutions or situations that sound like yours.

    I'm not a defender of trial and error, but I can't think of another way to do...

    Right click and disable the non Microsoft extensions one at a time (or maybe in groups of 3-5), keep a list, so you can enable them again later if you wish. The result of the change is immediate and no reboot is necessary.  Test your failure condition.  If the Explorer starts to act normally, you'll know that some extension you just disabled in this group of 3-5 is the culprit, then you can start to enable them one by one until the Explorer fails again.

    If you recognize all the extensions that have been added or recently downloaded, start with these first.

    Disabling the extension does not uninstall the extension - it is just disabled.

    Disable them one at a time or in small groups (to make things go faster) until your right click does not generate an error, and then restart and try again.  You have disabled the last extension would be suspicious.

    You can also just disable all non-Microsoft extensions, restart and allow them one at a time until you find the one that generates the condition.

    If you have a large number of extensions, you can disable them is small groups, 3-5 at a time instead of 1 at a time until your system starts to behave.  When it does not, you will know that the problem is one of the extensions of this small group and you can enable members of the Group at a time until the problem returns, then the problem is with the last extension that you enabled.

    The hope is that you will find an extension that caused the error, and then you can figure out what on this subject - either uninstall it or see if you can get an update of the author of the extension of their web page.

    I have not your problem, but I can when you toggle extensions, the extension is immediately disabled, so disable an extension does not seem to require a restart, but if you think that you have found the problem, I reboot and repeat the test in any case to be sure the problem disappeared.

    If you post your non-Microsoft extensions list, maybe someone will recognize it as a potential problem.

    If you find the offending extension that's the problem, please let us know what it is that I can add to my list.

    The details are as follows,

    Product used is Dragon Naturally Speaking (DNS) version 10.1 and according to the seller the problem isn't a problem caused DNS by their Tech Support who I worked with for more than a week...  However the problem only occurs when this program is running.  The only way that I was able to temporarily fix the problem is to stop the DNS program in the Task Manager process section and restart explorer.exe

    Given that the supplier says it's a matter of Windows and with the info I provided please help.

    Thank you.

    Try saving the DLL for applications that crashes.
