XP Explorer Crashes When Using: Right-click Send-To; Choosing 'Folders' in My Comp.; Typing in Address bar and pressing enter
Posted on 2004-09-19
I have had this problem for some time but it is now affecting a new bit of software which requires the folder explorer bar to operate.
Explorer crashes (ie active window closes, screen goes blank, then all open apps return except the active window were the action occured) when doing any of the following:
- in My Computer if i click on the Folders icon, or choose View_ Explorer Bar_ Folders (breifly see folders before crashing)
- if i Right-Click an icon and choose the Send-To option (crashes before showing the sub categories)
- when right-clicking a folder and choosing "Explore" (this is a strange one and can sometimes work; but is hit and miss - Open which apears to be the same function works better)
- also when typing web addresses in the IE address bar - this also sometimes can be ok, but i tend to stick with the ever reliable google toolbar these days!
Can anyone see how these things are linked together and how they could be fixed!?
Thanks in advance.....
