windows exlporer is shutting down

  jimbob61 09:57 03 Oct 2007

I am running vista home premium on a sony vaio ar41e laptop and recently when i try to access my c drive or my user folders windows explorer shuts down and then restarts. I am able to access the same folders from the toolbar on the task bar, but only if I access spacific folders. It only seems to be the main user folders on C drive that are affected by this problem.I have scoured the net and there seems to be a hell of a lot of people out there with similar problems and there also seems to be a variaty of fixes also. The vast majority seem to be poeple not being able to access IE7, but mine seems to only be when I try and access my main user folders.
can anyone out there offer a solution to my problem.

System Restore is worth a try, otherwise get AgentRansack (click here), search
C:\users\(your account name) for


Select them all and delete them. Any better?

That's Because IE and Windows Explorer are linked, Vista Baa-humbug

Try the free download Crap Cleaner from click here a very efficient program which has the ability to clear issues and conflicts in the registry. It's safe and easy to use. It's worth a try. It also gets rid of the useless data trail which Windows leaves behind after every session and generally keeps your computer clear of dross which might be interfering.

Thanks for the help, but CCleaner has no affect, just ran it and no affect.
