I recently got some video files from my friends and now when I open the folder containing them I get two errors.
'Windows explorer has encountered an error so it will now restart' & 'DrWatson32 has encountered an error and was forced to shut down.' The problem is Drwatson doen't close, it stays runing so after pressing ctrl,alt+del and close drwatson windows explorer then restarts, if not everything is dead.
I recently got infected with a virus but I think it was avast giving a false error because the product was 'tech-pro utilities start-up' & 'sticky notes' and I trust this company.
OPTION 1 - Repair XP by replacing corrupt files Type
in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.
