Hi Emmanuel,.

·         When you get this error message?

·         You did any computer change?

·         When was it last works well?

We have no fix to correct the error, because Windows Explorer may stop responding for several reasons such as the file system, third-party software conflicts, corruption etc. So, be aware of what caused Windows Explorer to stop working and based on that the next steps could be useful.

    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.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

  • Whenever I try to update, I get the message "windows Explorer has stopped working". It then seeks a solution, restarts, and immediately stops again. No error code just a constant circle. This has happened for days. I am running windows 7.

    Whenever I try to update, I get the message "windows Explorer has stopped working".  It then seeks a solution, restarts, and immediately stops again. No error, just a constant circle of shutdown and startup code.  This has happened for days.  I am running windows 7.

    I think that norton or mcafee may have been preinstalled as trial versions, but I've never actually used them. Unfortunately I can't use the windows Explorer, so I can't check if they are still there.

    We will cover all the possibilities.

    1. download each of the tools for deletion below, save it to your desktop:

    Norton Removal Tool: ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/removal_tools/Norton_Removal_Tool.exe

    McAfee removal tool: http://download.mcafee.com/products/licensed/cust_support_patches/MCPR.exe

    2. close all open applications (that is, anything with an icon on the taskbar).

    3. After completing some you have a copy of your handy product key, uninstall all software (including LiveUpdate and Add-ons of Norton) Norton through Control Panel | Programs | Uninstall a program (or Control Panel |) Programs and features, if you are using the classic view)

    IMPORTANT! => Activate the Windows Firewall immediately after the restart.

    IMPORTANT! => Now you're "working without a net": no to ANYTHING else online (e.g., navigation, reading e-mail, chat) until you have completed the steps #4, #5 and #6 below!

    4. right click on one of the files that you saved in #1 above and select run as administrator to run the utility. DO TAP not your keyboard until the race ends, then restart.

    5. Repeat step #4 for another removal tool.

    Tips:

    -Online use another computer to download the removal tool, if necessary, then transfer it to the computer via CD, DVD, or a USB brand new, never been used (flash drive), or a summer freshly updated in shape.

    -Online start the problem in Mode safe computer, if necessary, proceed as above.

    -Online after completing all of the above, uninstall AVG Free & reboot. Now do a new installation of AVG Free 9.0, this time select the CUSTOM installation option and do NOT install (uncheck) Linkscanner Search-Shield, Active Surf-Shield, security or the email of crawl components toolbar.

    Thank you

    I told you to do many things. What you have tried and what you are still trying (if we can get a happening of todo list and I can check it)? Have you managed to find the results of chkdsk?

    Copy and paste so the formatting is good. It is a single line. If you get an error message, you can copy it by right-clicking in the window, choose the brand, by selecting the text, and press ENTER.

    There are communes of false positives of SFC so do not assume that something is actually corrupted until we see what files it complains. Settings.ini, desktop.ini, tcpmon.ini and ending with mof files are false positives.

     
    For the results of the SFC
    Start - All Programs - Accessories - right on command prompt and choose run as administrator. Type (or copy and paste by clicking in the command prompt window and choose Paste).

  • "Windows Explorer has stopped working" if I open Control Panel

    Guys, could someone help me please?

    When I open the Control Panel, it says "Windows Explorer has stopped working" and then it restarts Windows Explorer. When I right click on any folder it says "recording of the UI language is not valid" 5 times and for a split second, it says "Corrupted registry" then it works. But I am unable to use the control panel.

    I have Windows Vista home premium and Norton Antivirus.

    Can someone help me please?

    Hello

    The error message says something about corrupt registry.
    So, it seems that this issue would be related to incorrect or damaged registry entries.

    If the registry is damaged, your operating system will not work as it should and can feel such or similar problems.

    I m using the CCLeaner to clean the registry and other system files.
    It s a free tool and you should try it.

    If this does not work and if you notice the same question so I would recommend reinstalling the OS using the Toshiba recovery disc.
    In most cases this will help you fix this registry

However, I am able to access Internet Explorer without problem. What is the problem?

    Hello

    1. you hear that you receive the error at startup after you have signed in to the user account?

    2 have you made any changes to the computer before the show?

    (a) click Start, type services.msc and press enter

    (b) search for the following services

    (c) Net.Tcp listner adapter

    (d) the Net.Tcp port sharing

    (e) make sure the status of services started and startup type is automatic.

    (f) click on apply and Ok.

    Method 2: SFC scanner.

    Analysis (sfc) System File Checker will replace the missing or corrupted system files on your computer.

  • Windows Explorer has stopped working vista 64-bit

    This is a random error that continues to be. I wonder if I want to seek a solution, when I do, it seeks a minute then quits or restart the program, when I do closes. It's random, seems to happen with windows internal programs, it happens more with I click, right happens again and again, but I'm going to work if there is more then a why to open a program like: go to control panel and double click on Device Manager, I get Windows Explorer has stopped working, but I can't get to the system hardware tab Device Manager and it opens fine.  I can do a restore and I don't know that I don't have a virus or spyware on my computer. I can't say at this point when it started, cause I just thought it was a freak thing.  Maybe something to do with the UAC.  There must be an easy fix for this. Please help, going nuts about it.

    Hello

    The problem is probably AVG which has caused a lot of problems lately for 8.x and 9.x.

    Frankly, I would delete it. Download but do not install the replacements until AFTER you remove AVG
    and restarted.

    For ALL - download - SAVE - go to where you put it-right-click on Reboot - RUN AS ADMIN - when you have finished

    AVG removal tool
    http://www.Avg.com/us-en/download-tools

    -------------------------------------------------

    Here's what I use and recommend:

    Avast and Prevx proved extremely reliable and compatible with everything I threw at them.
    Microsoft Security Essentials and Prevx have also proven very reliable and compatible.

    Avast Home free - stop any shields is not necessary except away from Standard, Web and network is working.

    Prevx - Home - free

    Windows Firewall

    Windows Defender (is not necessary if you use MSE)

    Protected IE - mode

    IE 8 - SmartScreen filter WE (IE 7 phishing filter)

    I also IE always start with asset if filter InPrivate IE 8.
    (Sometimes you have to temporarily turn off with the little icon to the left of the + bottom right of IE)

    Avast - stop home - free - all shields you do no need except leave Standard, Web and network running.
    (Double-click the blue icon - details look OK. - upper left Shields - those that you do not cancel).
    http://www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home.html

    Or use Microsoft Security Essentials - free
    http://www.Microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/

    Prevx works well alongside MSE or Avast

    Prevx - Home - small, fast, exceptional CLOUD free protection, working with other security programs. It comes
    a scan only, VERY EFFICIENT, if it finds something to come back here or use Google to see how to remove.
    http://www.prevx.com/   <-->
    http://info.prevx.com/downloadcsi.asp  <-->

    PCmag - Prevx - Editor's choice
    http://www.PCMag.com/Article2/0, 2817,2346862,00.asp

    Also get Malwarebytes - free - use as scanner only. If you ever suspect malware, and that would be unusual with
    Avast and Prevx running except a low occasional (not much), updated cookie and then run it as
    a scanner. I have a lot of scanners and they never find anything of note that I started to use this configuration.

    I hope this helps.
