Explorer.exe has stopped working

Original title: explorer.exe

My explorer.exe has stopped working several times and I tried to start in the Task Manager, but he tells me that he has ceased to work every time


Often, a certain instability in Windows Explorer is due to the defective shell extensions and addons.

Consider using Sysinternals Autoruns or ShellExView. Disable Add-ons and non Microsoft shell extensions and verify the behavior.  If he went, reactivate the disabled extensions/add-ons, one at a time and see if you can identify who may be liable.
Try a clean boot, or boot into safe mode.  The behavior persists?
If you continue to experience the problem, consider creating the hierarchy of following registry keys in the registry:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Windows error Reporting\LocalDumps\explorer.exe\
In the explorer.exe key, create a REG_EXPAND_SZ value named DumpFolder and set the value to%systemdrive%\localdumpsdata.  Ensure that the %systemdrive%\localdumps file exists, and then cause the crash to happen.  It must be a dump file in %systemdrive%\localdumps. Download the dump on your SkyDrive file and provide a link.

  • Explorer.exe has stopped responding during the slide show.

    I am not sure what happened, but I was downloading of images for a slideshow and I didn't notice that my laptop has been restarted due to an update. I thought it would be to find until I started to run into an error with explorer.exe. When I go in the folder of the situation to show them as a slideshow of the pictures, the screen goes black, as it is supposed to and then crashes. From there on, I get a notification that explorer.exe has stopped working. Do you think the problem is a corrupted image file should I remove? It doesn't bother me if I have to because I know where to find them again.

    Hi WyldFyre254,

    I would suggest trying the following steps and check if it helps.

    Step 1: Start the computer in safe mode and check if the problem persists.

    Safe mode is useful for troubleshooting problems with programs and drivers that might not start correctly or may prevent Windows from starting correctly.



    If the problem persists in safe mode run clean boot to see if there is a software conflict as the clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    Note: After the boot minimum troubleshooting step, follow step 7 in the link provided to return the computer to a Normal startupmode.

    Step 2: Recreate the slideshow and check that it works very well.

  • sqldeveloper64W.exe has stopped working

    Summary of the problem


    Error message: sqldeveloper64W.exe has stopped working when you try to open the .sql files

    Description of the problem


    Breast of SQL Developer 4.0, I went into Preferences > File Types, find the extension .sql and checked the box that says Open with SQL Developer.  I went to the Associations the value Control Panel in Windows 7 Professional 64 bit and confirmed that the current default is set to sqldeveloper64W.  I have used the CMD function for access to regedit, deleted the file associations for .sql and return all preferences.  If the SQL Developer is not already open on my machine and I am trying to open a .sql file, the application starts very well.  If I try to open additional files in the windows or windows Search Explorer, I get an APPCRASH indicating that sqldeveloper64W.exe has stopped working.  I click close the program and developer sql remains open, but my file does not open.

    Error codes


    sqldeveloper64W.exe has stopped working

    Try changing the sqldeveloper64.exe shortcut instead. This will give you the CMD window when it is opened. We'll see if we get interest error messages here when you try to open additional files.

    Once you run SQL Developer time away - force look for a 64-bit JDK, you can simply run the main sqldeveloper.exe in the main folder...

  • sqldeveloper.exe has stopped working

    I get this message that says "sqldeveloper.exe has stopped working" when I double click on a file .sql using windows Explorer 7. My sqldeveloper application is already running and remains in place and connected to the database server. My two options on this line are 'close program' and 'check online for a solution. " I chose "close the program", but the program does not close. 'find a solution online' does nothing. There is no associated icon .sql files displaying in Explorer. Should there be?
    If I use sqldeveloper to navigate to a .sql it will open it. He can't open the .sql files. But I also have to work when you search for files by using windows Explorer.
    Anyone have this problem? If so, how to solve it?

    You drag the older plants? I don't normally open windows files, but I did the other day and he starts SQL Developer 1.5. I used 2.1 and then several pre-releases from 3 up to production given that I used last 1.5. It seems that associations not updated files.

    Maybe you have an old facility, non-working, which is giving you the problem.

  • "Plugin - container.exe has stopped working" error during installation of Firefox 36.0 via SCCM if Firefox is open during installation.

    When installing Firefox 36.0 via SCCM (System Center Configuration Manager), if the previously installed version of Firefox is open during the new installation, an error, "Plugin - container.exe has stopped working. A problem caused the blocking of the program works correctly. Please close the program. This problem occurs only if Firefox is open during the installation, otherwise the installation is successful. Note: I have included a taskkill to 'firefox.exe' in my installation script to stop Firefox runs.

    There are new logic in Firefox 36 monitor to stop crashes while the Mozilla Crash Reporter can capture data. This could have the effect of killing her task, I'm not sure. Maybe you have to kill plugin - container.exe before firefox.exe? I'm not familiar with SCCM and it might have a more graceful way to close an application.

  • HPSF.exe has stopped working

    When I try to open HP Support Assistant, I get an error message that hpsf.exe has stopped working. Application has encountered a problem and needs to close. My warranty expired on 12/09/2012. HP Support Assistant disappears when the warranty expires. If this isn't what someone has an idea how I can fix?


    It's nothing to do with your warranty ending, however this can be a fickle piece of software.

    Try the following.

    Firstly, uninstall your current version of HP Support Assistant using Microsoft 'Fixit' at the following link: this is particularly useful for correcting problems that may prevent resettlement on the machines running a 64 bit OS.


    When this has completed, restart the computer.

    Then download and install the latest version of HP Support Assistant of the page on the link below - the download links are to the bottom of the page.


    After installation, restart the computer again.

  • TosIPCSrv.exe has stopped working on Satellite A300

    When I start my computer... (Vista) I have Toshiba Satellite A300

  • Satellite Pro U400 - TrueSuite Manager setup.exe has stopped working

    I have a Satellite Pro U400 running Vista Business (OEM) and at the start of a desktop computer TrueSuite Manager pop-up message appears telling me there is an update to install.

    When I try to install the update, I get a window that says Setup.exe does not work.

    Signature of the problem of the relationship an APPCRASH-is30C0.exe with the exception C0000005 code.

    I tried to uninstall the TrueSuite Manager through Windows uninstaller programs, but get the same message - setup.exe has stopped working.

    Appreciate advice on how to solve this problem.


    I think that it is a simple case of corrupted registry entries and files that could belong to the TrueSuite Manager software.

    I agree with the previous user, and I recommend to reinstall this software again.
    You may need to clean the OS before installing the Truesuite again.
    In this case, I recommend the CCLenaer. It s a simple and free tool and can be downloaded on most Web sites.

    Google and you should find more information.

    I tried to uninstall the manually, but I got the same message.

    These programs are;
    Setup driver Atheros
    Toshiba hardware configuration
    Toshiba supervisor password
    Realtek High Definition Audio Driver

    So I can't go ahead with the upgrade.

    Anyone know what could be the problem?

    Thanks in advance,

    Anyboday tried to run the upgrade as an administrator? Therefore, click on the setup.exe file on the upgrade disc and run it as an administrator.

    Moreover I also upgraded from Vista to Windows 7, but in the manual supplied with the notebook, I founded the information, that it s to start the upgrade directly after a new installation of recovery.

  • ATKEX_cmd.exe has stopped working

    Hi all

    I'm struggling with this problem ATEX for awhile now and still not found a solution myself.

    I hope someone knows the answer to solve.

    whenever I have start my pc I get the same error "ATKEX_cmd.exe has stopped working" around 5 times in a row!

    You can see a printscreen of it added to this post!

    I had personally never heard of ATEX so much, I searched on the web

    and did not even find why I need exactly.

    In any case, I came to know that it is in a part of my registry so it's like all the other parties 'binary codes.

    and it would probably be affected by malware because I never changed anything in my regedit on this pc so far.

    So I did a SFC scan and I did a few malware scans and scanned and fixed my registry with some of the best free products (like ccleaner and so on)

    There is no malware detected and the registry got some repairs (as always) and some of the binary codes that had to be quarantined or deleted had to do with ATKEX!

    but the same problem still occurring...

    I'm not able to find the ATKEX_cmd.exe but I found the folder named 1.01.02 under "C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\AXSP\1.01.02' witch contains 3 files named:"ATKEX.dll","atkexComSvc"and"PEbiosinterface32.dll"so as you can see the DLL is still on my pc)"

    You can also see the printscreen of it in my post

    I also ran into problems when I tried to update the BIOS of my motherboard asus maximus vii ranger, because apperently I need to rename the cap file before updating, I feel that this could be the cause, but I'm not sure what I should do now

    Thank you very much!
