Windows Explorer right click properties lock!
Posted on 2000-05-05
If I go to windows Explorer and right click on a file and then go to properties my system freezes. I have Norton Crash Guard and sometimes it comes up but if I try to use revive it will crash the whole system, I have to use terminate application. This happens on any file wheather its a txt or exe.
I sometimes get an OK box that comes up that has in the title bar: Invalid Public Key Security Object file, and below it says: This is an invalid Revocation List file. I have to hit OK to make it go away.
I have tried several things to correct the problem with no effect. I have:
used msconfig to load nothing on startup (no autoexec.bat, config.sys etc.)
used norton disk doctor on thorough mode, speed disk
run Spinrite 5.0
I have not run defrag or scandisk as this is just a repeat of the Norton and Spinrite software.
There doesn't seem to be any other problems with the system.
Has anyone heard of this before...I did some searching on the net and came up with nothing useful. I can't even seem to find anyone that has had this problem before.
The only other solution that I don't want to do yet is wipe the drive and start over.
