Can't open Control Panel. Explorer.exe Application Error
Posted on 2005-04-11
Strange things are going on on my computer. I use Mozilla Firefox web browser version 1.0.2. I first noticed this error when trying to download ANY kind of attachement via Hotmail.
firefox.exe - No Disk
There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive \Device\Harddisk2\DR15
I thought I'd uninstall and reinstall Mozilla Firefox, but have a second problem to solve before I do that.
I am getting the following error when I try to open the Control Panel on a Windows XP Professional PC.
Explorer.exe Application Error
The instruction at "0x02e89e56" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "written".
Click OK to terminate the program.
Click CANCEL to debug the program.
I have tried the patch in KB Article Q329692. I have followed instructions KB Article 883791. No luck. Still have same symptoms. I scanned the computer for viruses and Spyware using Microsoft Anti Spyware, Spybot Search and Destroy, and Ad Aware. I was able to successfully remove all spyware.
What else can I do? Please help!
