buffer overrun detected C:/windows/explorer.exe
Posted on 2005-03-05
I keep recieving this error,
buffer overrun detected
I then click ok and explorer restarts. This error is reproducable and comes up whether I click on My computer, control panel or try to oopen any file.
I have run a virus scan in safe mode and during boot but nothing found.
This is very irritating as it is deeming my system completely useless. I have not installed any new software lately nor made any system changes.
Any info on where to start looking for a solution or how to fix this? I think it is a virus or worm but virus scans with avast home 4.6 is not picking anything up. I would upgrade to pro but i am tight on moneys right now.
I would also post the system logs or look there but I cannot even browse the file system. I have done all common trouble shooting such as rebooting the system but no help.
