Windows explorer loop
Posted on 2011-02-16
Searched all the posts but no luck in a solution. I have a Latitude D830 running vista ultimate 32bit. The machine is stuck in an infinite loop "windows explorer has stopped working". Last thing that was done before this started was watching a video on Fox8 news site which is a pretty credible site.. so I thought!
List of things I tried so far
1. Turned off UAC- no luck
2. Started in safe mode- Still restarts but not quite as frequent
3. ran Malewarebytes- no threats found
4. ran Norton 360 scan- no threats found
5. Disabled automatic restart on system failure- no luck
I'm kind of afraid of doing a restore and having the system crash during the process.. could be bad!
All apps seem to run ok once I get them open but its a real pain.
