Explorer Windows stopped working, and it wont let me run cmd as administrator.

A few months ago, I got the error message "Windows Explorer has stopped working". He asks if I want such online for a solution, or close the program. I looked online and everyone says to run cmd as administrator, and then type Sfc/scannow, but when I right click on cmd after a search on the start menu, it says that it has stopped working again. I also tried to run cmd as an admin using Crlt-shirt-entry, but he always says that it has stopped working. I use Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit.

For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
Control Panel - device - Graphics Manager - note the brand and complete model
your video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now, click on update
Driver (this can do nothing as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then right-click.
Uninstall - REBOOT it will refresh the driver stack.

Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party

Now in the system manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) site (in a restaurant), peripheral
Site of the manufacturer (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for
BIOS, Chipset and software updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)

Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after
each installation.

Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you actually install
presents itself. This is because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (sound card drivers

  • Explorer Windows stopped working when opening a folder

    Hello

    I get this error "Windows Explorer has stopped working" for the past few months, every time I try to open a particular folder that contains 10-15 .avi files. This folder is located on an external hard drive and when I plugged the hard drive of a computer running XP it's the same thing. It throws this error and gives me 2 options,

    1. check online for a solution and restart the program.

    2. restart the program.

    According to the option that I chose it closes all the windows in the Solution Explorer, and nothing happens.

    I tried to copy the file from external hard disk to the local computer and the same thing happens when I try to access it. I don't think that's the problem with my computer as the same thing happens also on the XP machine.

    Please suggest what to do.

    Vista and Windows 7 updated drivers love then here's how update the most important.

    This is my generic how updates of appropriate driver:

    This utility, it is easy see which versions are loaded:

    -Free - DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system.
    For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver,
    Description, version, product name, company that created the driver and more.
    http://www.NirSoft.NET/utils/DriverView.html

    For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
    Control Panel - device - Graphics Manager - note the brand and complete model
    your video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now, click on update
    Driver (this can do nothing as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then right-click.
    Uninstall - REBOOT it will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party
    with their own software and drivers and all other main drivers that you have.

    Now in the system manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) site (in a restaurant), peripheral
    Site of the manufacturer (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for
    BIOS, Chipset and software updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after
    each installation.

    Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you actually install
    presents itself. This is because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (sound card drivers
    in particular that) so to install a driver - reboot - check that it is installed and repeat as
    necessary.

    Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW in the DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER device - check
    manually by model.

  • My internet explorer 7 stops working and stops.

    My internet explorer 7 stops working and sometimes stops it charging but several times she sent the message that the problem could not be solved and microsoft would be notified.

    Hello

    What antivirus/antispyware/security products do you have on the machine? Be one you ALREADY had on this
    machine, including those you have uninstalled (they leave leftovers behind which can cause strange problems).

    If no joy there's something blocking perhaps.

    Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - IE with no Addons - what works best?

    IE - Tools - Internet Options - Advanced - tab click on restore, and then click Reset - apply / OK

    IE - Tools - Internet Options - Security tab - click on reset all default areas - apply / OK

    Close and restart IE or IE with no addons

    not better?

    IE - tools - manage Addons (for sure disable SSV2 if it is there, it is no longer necessary but Java always install
    "(and it causes problems - you never update Java to go back in and turn it off again)." Search for other possible problems.

    Windows Defender - tools - software explore - look for problems with programs that do not look right. Permit
    are usually OK and "unauthorized" are not always bad. If in doubt about a program to ask about it here.

    Could be that a BHO - BHOremover - free - standalone program, needs no installation, download and run - not all
    are bad, but some can cause your question (toolbars are BHO).

  • Explorer Windows stopped working - by clicking on the icons in Control Panel

    I discovered that when I go into Control Panel and try to use the programs icon features as soon as I click I get "windows that explore has stopped working" and it will restart windows Explorer.

    Playing around I found if I just go to control panel and then close the window, I get the same error!

    Argh!   How can I fix it?

    Hello

    Please apply the following patch:

    http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/978433 (Windows Explorer crashes and then restarts when you access an element of Panel of others on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 )

    Click on the link view and request hotfix downloads select the platform (x 86 or x 64) and type in your email twice and enter the captcha ad click request hotfix.

    After 1 minute, you have an email with the link to download an exe file. Use the password is contained in the email to retrieve the update.

    Install the update and restart, now, the problem should be solved.

    If the issue is not fixed, please download this reg from my SkyDrive file:
    http://CID-128fc518635be2dc.SkyDrive.live.com/self.aspx/.public/Ms%20Foren/registry/WER%5E_Explorer.reg

    and double click on the file to import.

    When Explorer crashes, Windows Error Reporting Service creates a dmp under C:\Localdumps. Please download the file to your public Skydrive folder and post the link here. I take to the dump, maybe I can see the cause.

    Whenever I'm trying to go in my computer or control panel, I get a message that windows Explorer has stopped working.  He then says that we find a solution, and the message disappears.  I can't yet get into my files computer or control panel.

    Why you are posting in the forum, IE?  Maybe the reason why you try to use the CP is to enter Internet Options?  If so, you can do it without the help of Windows Explorer (at least on your operating system) starting (using the Task Manager if necessary): control.exe inetcpl.cpl

    Otherwise what your problem probably means is that you have added something new to the root of the control panel which is not compatible with your OS, causing thus the Windows Explorer (not IE) crashing.  In this case, the same way you could get in Add Remove programs without involving Windows Explorer by starting: control.exe appwiz.cpl

    You can get help more informed by post on a forum that specializes in performance and Maintenance of your operating system.

    Good luck

    If you haven't tried the "last known good configuration" among the Advanced startup options then do that first.  If this does not help, you must run the System File Checker to search for possible system problems.  Then, you must run the upgrade from the system tool and then see if you are able to run the SP2 update.   Mike - Engineer Support Microsoft Answers
