In Windows Explorer. A dated file say 12/02/2000. When you click the folder, the files in the folder bear different date. Why is it so.

ORIGINAL TITLE: I use Windows xp.

I use Windows xp. In Windows Explorer. A dated file say 12/02/2000. When you click the folder, the files in the folder bear different date. Why is it so. To update the files, we should see the dates of the files instead of the dates of the folder. right? Why is there such a difference?


My copy of Windows XP works the same as yours.  Apparently the date folder is not updated when the content is, that fact make some sense as the folder itself is not updated when new content is created in the it.

    Problem seen in Google search engine.

    I used Google for years without problems - I work from home as a freelance journalist.  But this last few days, if I search for something on Google from IE and click on a result, I can get the page I want upward.  But then, if I want to go back to the same Google search page to check the other results, I can't go back by clicking on the button 'back' at the top left, as I always did.  If I click it, it just keeps returning me to the page I'm already.  I find no mention anywhere using this problem or any means to remedy.  If I have the cursor hover over the arrow bak, the address of the current page appears rather than the original Google search page, so there is obviously something wrong.

    Thank you


    1. This only happens with Google?

    2. don't you make recent changes?

    I suggest you to follow these steps and check if that helps:

    Method 1:

    Try to run Internet explorer mode without modules and check to see if the same problem happens:

  • Windows Explorer crashes when you open any folder with MPEG2 files.

    WinXP SP3 - When you open any folder with MPEG2 files, windows Explorer crashes. If the folder contains only the MPEG1 files, it opens without a problem. We first thought it was a problem of media player, but we can not even click on a file to open it in media player.

    Hi kathyd,.

    ·        You did changes to the computer before this problem started?

    Since we do not know what is causing this problem, I'd suggest unanimous the event viewer on your computer and check the details in the window logs messages/error codes important related to the question, during the time where this problem occurs and after return.

    Event logs can help you identify and diagnose the source of current system problems or help you predict potential system problems.

    Access the link below to learn how to view and manage the event logs in Event Viewer in Windows XP

    You can try to start both computers in safe mode and check if it can open the folder where the MPEG 2 files are stored and if windows Explorer crashes. To boot to the desktop in safe mode keep tapping key F8 during restart. Once you see the option to start in safe mode select and press to enter.

    I hope this helps. Post back with the required information.

    Thank you and best regards,

  • Error "Windows explore has stopped working" when you open the file in my documents

    Original title: opening a file in the folder my documents

    Whenever I try to open a file in my documents folder, specifically a CV that I downloaded on a construction site. I get a message that windows Explorer has stopped working?

    Hi dalintn,

    1. What is the file format of the document?

    2. are you able to open documents from other locations?

    3. did you of recent changes on the computer?

    Check if the similar problem persists when you access the document from any other location on the computer.

    Method 1

    This error message can occur if there is some system files corrupted on your computer. I suggest that you run a SFC scan, which would be a system file corrupt on the computer search and replace.

    The analysis may take some time, so be patient. Windows allows to fix corrupt or missing files it finds. If the information of the installation CD is required to fix the problem, you may be asked to insert your Windows Vista installation CD.

    For more information please visit the link below.

    How to use the System File Checker tool to fix the system files missing or corrupted on Windows Vista or Windows 7

    Method 2

    If the previous step fails then I would suggest that you do clean boot and check.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows Vista by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    See the link below to learn more about how to clean boot.

  • Windows Explorer is restarted when you browse the folder that contains the file huge (more than 4 GB for example HIDEF mkv files)

    I use Windows 7 Ultimate x 64. I found that when I review the folder that contains large files (more than 5 GB each, for example the HIDEF mkv files), Explorere.exe stopped working and restart.

    However, I can open these files when I open them directly from the program (i.e. KMPlayer). Here are 2 events after restart and Explorer.exe crash. I got them from event viewer

  • error message "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close" on click with the right button in my computer

    I had this problem for awhile now.  After I receive and send the error report my computer is blocked and I have to finish by WTM. I tried to start in safe mode and it was ok there and when I restarted in normal mode it was ok for the rest of the day, but when I put the computer today the problem reappeared. Dr. Watson is also sometimes with an error message.

    I am running XP with MS and updates.

    Would appreciate some advice.


    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 at a time), 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 behave, you will know that an extension of this group of 3-5 is the culprit in order to 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.

    Don't forget - disabling the extension does not uninstall the extension - it is just disabled so you can always turn it on again.  In this way, you can switch back and forth, enabled to be sure, you have the right extension under control.

    Disable them one at a time until your right click on do not generate an error, then restart and test again to make sure the changes 'stick '.  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.

    How can I make my windows media player an audio cd without him saying cd error 1

    Visits has Windows Media Player 11, and these are the Vista Forums.

    We give Vista information in these Forums:

    If you have Vista, read the information below:

    Read the section on using disks of ISO for the older image format or different CD players

    If your computer is equipped with a CD or DVD burner, you can copy files to a recordable disc. This process is called burning a disc. By default, Windows Burns discs in the active file system format, but you can also choose to burn discs in ISO image format.


    Why are there two different ways to format a disc?

    You can choose between the formats of live file system and mastered during the creation of a new recordable disc because each of these formats is used for different purposes. The default choice is the active file system because it is a more convenient way to create a disc. When you use a Live file system disc, files are copied to the disk immediately. When you use the ISO image format, the files are stored in a "transit zone" until you decide to burn the disc.

    When you use the system format active files with rewritable discs, such as CD - RW and DVD - RW, you can also erase unwanted files from a disc to recover space, which is not possible with mastered discs. On the other hand, mastered discs are more compatible with older computers, previous versions of Windows, and other devices such as CD and DVD players. For more information, see which CD or DVD format should I use?

    See you soon.
