Explorer Locks Up

Everytime I open Windows Explorer, it locks up my computer.  Now I have to go through 'My Computer' to get to all of my files.  No other program will lock it up.  Has anyone heard of this happening, and if so do you know any fix for it besides reloading windows ?  Thanks in advance.

All you have to do is delete the Windows Explorer file and copy it back from any other Windows95 OS.

The file located at C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE and C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER there are two files.

Good luck.

Do you have a CD-ROM connected to your computer?  Everytime you open Windows Explorer, it will try to read every "device" on your compnay and that could be causing your lockup.

Have you installed any games from Papyrus, like Nascar, or Nascar2? I had the same thing happen to me when I installed N2. I then ran an update utility that came with the game. It istalled to patches, and cleared the problem up right away.
