File Search Crashes Explorer Shell
Posted on 2003-12-10
Hi, I have a Windows 2000 machine with no service packs on an NT 4.0 domain. I haven't recently made any changes to the computer. The file search program has suddenly started crashing the explorer shell every time I try to use it. Yesterday, I found the following errors in Application event viewer that relate to the crash:
Source: Winmgmt, event ID 37: "WMI ADAP was unable to load the perfproc.dll performance library due to an unknown problem within the library: 0x0 "
Source: Winmgmt event ID 37: "WMI ADAP was unable to load the winspool.drv performance library due to an unknown problem within the library: 0x0 "
Today, when it crashed again, there was nothing in event viewer related to it, except to tell me that explorer.exe crashed and restarted. I am VERY reluctant to install service packs if there is any other way around this. Any ideas? Thanks!
