Windows Server 2003 R2 explorer.exe crashing


I am looking for help on a PC server.

All programs work correctly and for all intensive purposes, the server is very good.

The problem is that explorer.exe crashes every 3 to 8 seconds.

I had a quick glance at the file hmdp and tbh it means nothing to me.

Could someone kind take a look on it and maybe point me in the right direction?

    Hi Daniel,.

    Remember to make changes to the computer before this problem?

    Possible cause would be due to out-of-date video drivers, corrupted system files, viruses or malware, faulty RAM, infection etc..

    I suggest you follow these methods and check:

    Method 1: Run the hotfix:
    Windows Explorer crashes randomly in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2

    Method 2: Follow the suggestions in this article:
    Explorer Windows stopped working

    Virus scan: while the Virus scan, data files that are infected must be cleaned only by removing the file completely, which means there is a risk of data loss.

    Clean boot: after a repair, be sure to put the computer to a normal startup mode.

    Update on site: note this upgrade on the spot takes the same amount of time to do the upgrade as to reinstall the operating system. In addition, some of your custom Windows settings may be lost through this process.

    Follow the steps and let us know if this helps.  If the problem persists, please answer and we will be happy to help you.

  • Windows 8 explorer.exe crash/restart of cycle - all solutions?

    I was stuck in the cycle of crash/restart explorer.exe since September now and I am curious to know if there are definitive solutions. A fix would be nice...

    I installed Windows 8 Pro x 64 September 18 (reliability monitor information). The first instance of this crash/restart cycle was September 24. Then, I tried to find out what happened on this day: there was an automatic installation of an update of definition for Windows Defender (KB2267602 (definition 1.137.336.0).) Looking at the previous day, the following are installed:
    • Google Drive

    • Microsoft Hardware USB keyboard
    • Microsoft Hardware USB mouse
    • Generic Non Plug-and-Play monitor
    • AccuWeather.AccuWeatherforWindows8
    • InvokeITLimited.TableClock
    According to the reliability monitor, the problem occurs about fifteen to twenty-five times a week. The level of reliability varies from 1 to 4. (I don't know what the vertical scale means that there is no label.)

    I just started going through applications Windows 8 and uninstall, in hope, where is the problem. (One interesting thing is that the issue almost never happens when I'm not using my computer - it occurs most often when I save a file in a program (it is often with Photoshop Elements, but this is not the only program that seems to induce the cycle crash/restart).) At least the file I save is not damaged...

    In the course of the incremental backup of a virtual machine, data recovery would not make progress and the backup appliance afficheraient 100% of the CPU.

  • Windows 8 explorer.exe crash - ntdll


    I'm having issues where explorer.exe crashes.  This occurs while I'm doing something that uses explorer.exe, such as moving files or folders to open.  However, if a file is opened and slowed, explorer.exe will tend to hang.  I don't know if that's when my computer is idle, however.  I have 2 files in my explorer.exe process in my Public SkyDrive folder dump.  I would fix my own problem, but I don't really know how to debug a DMP file and get something meaningful out of it.
    If necessary, I can create a larger file of the DMP of explorer.exe crashing, but I'll do so if requested.  Also, tell me if someone needs more information.

    See you soon

    The module that seems to be the cause of the accident is the googledrivesync64.dll:

    ERROR: The symbol file is not found.  Defaulted to export symbols for googledrivesync64.dll .
    Could not find setting 0xf, given previous unchanged

    Probably caused by: googledrivesync64.dll (googledrivesync64! DllCanUnloadNow + dc0)

    The googledrivesync64.dll is a component of Google Reader.

    Another third party module, the avcuf64.dll, which is a component of Bitdefender, seemed to be also involved in the accident.

    Both of these modules seem to be recent versions:

    I use web.show_document in Forms 10 g. When I run my application from Windows Server 2003, the document of web.show_document goes into the taskbar and flashes at me instead of opening, clicking on the lettering flashing it opens fine.

  • Recovering data in Windows Server 2003

    We have in our site Office Windows Server 2003 is installed on DELL Power Edge 1900 with three 250 GB hard drives and RAID 5 configured

    In this server, we have folders that have been shared in the office network. One of the hard drive is faulty, and also the operating system crashed with Nt kernel file corrupted.

    Data recovery utility was executed after the completion of the process Windows Server 2008 has been charged to view the folders.  All the data are not seen in the records.

    Is this because the file system of the server operating system two (2003 and 2008) is different and if the records are not available?

  • Windows Server 2003 on the HARD IDE in Mode ATAPI drive?

    My problem is that I want to know if a HDD IDE will run in Mode ATAPI.

    More details >

    There is a motherboard of INTEL S5000 VSA server in the office. He already had Win 2003 and everything was fine until the HARD drive crashed and the people replaced by an a SCSI maintenance (I don't know if he had a SATA, SCSI or an IDE HDD previously). After installing new HARD drive, they were not able to install Win server 2003 and went for 2008. Windows Server 2008 creates problems for us and the maintenance people are also confused and unresponsive to the situation.

    We have Windows Server 2003 R2. The motherboard has only one IDE port but scored the "working mode" as ATAPI. I was wondering if I could just attach an IDE HDD and install Win Server 2003 R2 (since win 2003 supports SATA out-of-the-box)

    (Displayed in the section of WIN XP as Win 2003 sharing the same base with XP, XP users can comment too)

    If a geek myself, I'm not very educated when it comes to servers. a Google search also did not help. I would be grateful if someone can help out me.

    Thank you

    Yes it will install and work fine on an IDE hard drive, ATAPI devices are all IDE drives.  The downside is that the reader will be much slower than the SCSI on a busy server, which can be a big disadvantage.

    For all its value that they probably could not install Server 2003 on the SCSI disk because they weren't using the method of F6 to provide drivers SCSI on a diskette or that they could not understand or how their wake worth installation CD.  There is no need of such a monumental lapse, notwithstanding the limitation INT-13 NT4 Server installed on SCSI and Server 2003 installs on SCSI providing that you give appropriate when installing drivers.
