Hello,

I looked through the already solved questions but i had no luck. So this is the case.

I am using vista business and repeatedly i get this error of Windows explorer has stopped working...windows explorer is restarting and then every open window that browses in my folder closes. firefox, music players etc keep working.

I checked on the reports within the control panel and it gives out this

Type CMD.EXE in the search box at the bottom of the Start Menu, hit Ctrl-Shift-Enter to run as Administrator.  Then type SFC   /SCANNOW at the DOS prompt to run the System File Checker.

hey thanks for the quick reply

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of th
em.
Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example
C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log

The system file repair changes will take effect after the next reboot.

C:\Windows\system32>

Did restarted the system as well.  I will let you know if it does it again.

Maybe you can post part of CBS.log...  I'll bet that VistaGlazz replaced your uxtheme.dll system file, and perhaps others.

Find Notepad on the Start Menu under Accessories, right click it, then select Run as Administrator.  You should then be able to navigate to the log and open it.

Yep, it looks like uxtheme.dll and some other system files connected with Windows themes were modified ("corrupted") by VistaGlazz.  Hopefully, your problem is solved...
