please help. I am continuously getting 'explorer.exe has caused an error and will be restarted.' messages on my pc. Then when I click ok the desktop disappears and I have to reboot. I am running Windows 2000 and have recently installed Service Pack 4. This only occurs when I am logged in on my account and not any other accounts. I can't uninstall the service pack as it makes changes to the registry that I cant repair without a backup of the registry. I dont know what to do - any ideas?
.. here's some items from Microsoft's Knowledge Base to check. As VoG says, there are many to view but I can find only one reference to Service Pack 4 which is at the second link - scroll halfway down page. TC.
Ive looked on the links u gave me and many message boards on the net but it's still not solved the problem. Is there any way of just re-installing explorer.exe from the Win 2000 disk? or is it possible to re-install windows without formatting the disk and losin all my stuff?
I typed in SFC /SCANNOW and it loads and asks for the win 2k disk. So i put it in and pressed 'Retry' and it started to work but then it kept prompting me for the disk again and again. I kept pressing retry till it got to the end but then a message came up saying I must have used the wrong installation disk because the files were different - or something along those lines. (i know it dusnt make much sense).
