Nice day

Thank you, Brian Newman

No guarantee, but it might be interesting to try to download
and install the XviD Codec:

(FWIW... it's always a good idea to create a system)
Restore point before installing software or updates)

Good luck...

  • When compacting OE in WinXP SP3 I get a message that OE has encountered an error and needs to close

    When compacting OE in WinXP SP3, I get a message that OE has encountered an error and needs to close that he made and lost messages in at least one of the message files. I can retrieve messages from the backup files, but I can do anything to correct the compaction process?

    The simplest solution is a new identity.  File | Identities | Add the new identity. Create a new one and try it. If all goes well, you can import your messages and address book from the old identity and delete it.

    To help prevent that this happens in the future...

    Do not archive mail in the receipt or sent items box. Create your own user-defined folders and move messages you want to put in them. Empty the deleted items folder daily. Although the dbx files have a theoretical capacity of 2 GB, I recommend all a 300 MB max for less risk of corruption.

    Information on the maximum size of the .dbx files that are used by Outlook Express:

    After you're done, followed by compacting your folders manually while working * off * and do it often.

    Click Outlook Express at the top of the the folder tree so no folders are open. Then: File | Work offline (or double-click on work online in the status bar). File | Folder | Compact all folders. Don't touch anything until the compacting is completed.

    Disable analysis in your e-mail anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer of protection that devours the processors and causes a multitude of problems such as time-outs and account setting changes. Your up-to-date A / V program will continue to protect you sufficiently. For more information, see:

    And backup often.

    I could not find any information on this error, except the one person that I know who maintains computers of the University of Missouri, said that he had this problem, and it was somehow related to the fact that he had too many thumbnails in the folder/drive.

    I didn't think that this is the case and think it is much more insidious than that.  Could use any help to solve this issue up to and including the repair of Windows Explorer (with the hope that I don't have to reloadt the operating system).

    Hi Jaaz76

    Method 1:

    You can perform a security analysis and check if there are viruses or malware present. Check out the link below to run the scan and check if this helps-



    Method 2:

    Also I suggest you perform a SFC scan and check. To Perform a Scan SFC -

    a. click Start, click programs, on Accessoriesprincipally made, right click guestand then click run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password, or click allow

    b. type the following command and press ENTER:


    c. a message indicating that "the system scan will start. Be patient, because the analysis may take some time

    d. If all files require a SFC replace will replace them. Hopefully though you should, after the analysis, see the following message "Windows resource protection not found any breach of integrity.

    e. once the scan is finished, close the command prompt window, restart the computer and check.

    Check the link below for further guidance on scan SFC - mentioned

    The best way to solve this maybe just create a new user account, transfer your personal data to this account, and then delete the old account. Make sure that you perform the system restore after you did the new account and everything works fine. To purge the system restore, simply disable it then again. Be aware that the creation of a new user account is not the means to get rid of malware. But it is perhaps the best way to get rid of some of the after effects. However, I recommend you scan with Malwarebytes before running these instructions. After scanning you may not create the new account.

    In addition, Jose is correct. Good number of new forms of malware prevent the start in safe mode. Trying to force booting in SafeMode with msconfig, you end up with a boot loop.

    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.

  • 'Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close' this error message on start up of the computer.

    Hello, I have tried to find others with a similar problem and so far have not found that everything about my specific situation. I found how ever that this problem was mainly caused by some type of problem with a variety of .dll files in the directory system32, and it seems that this problem has different effects depending on the cause of the problem .dll file.

    My problem is caused by the file user32.dll (or so it seems). When I click on the blue link in the error it say "to see what data this error report contains, click here." gives me the following information.

    AppName: explorer.exe AppVer: Modname 6.0.2900.5512: user32.dll

    ModVer: 5.1.2600.5512 Offset: 00009de9.

    In addition, in this screen is a link to view technical information about the error report, but it is not allowing me to copy / paste the info, and there is a lot of it.

    I use windows XP service pack 2, I believe. I also tried to install the automatic updates, but that none were downloaded and installed solved the problem. This problem started to occur after I inserted my CD (which is very, very old) Guild Wars. Don't know if this will help. Also, it seems that the only thing that that is rampant in this error is my taskbar, I can simply move the message to the bottom of my screen and use all the other features on my computer with no problems at all, but its still a problem annoying.

    I hope that this information will be enough for you guys.

    Thank you
