window vista problem

  kimisam 18:23 02 Dec 2007


I have a problem with my new laptop, it runs window vista.

everytime I change programme or application, a message box says "window explorer is not working" and it will fix itself with a new message box says "window explorer is starting".

it is so annoying, can anyone out there help please.

Can you click on details from the message and tell us what it says?

hi anskyber,

there is no details on the box, it just tells me window explorer is not working and then it will find a fix for it and then it says window is restarting.....then the screen will refresh itself.
it happens even when I turn off the window welcome centre box.

Have you installed k-lite codec pack? If so, uninstall it.
