DeskTop - Freezing on opening My Doc's

  jhfitz 13:12 21 Jul 2004

Does anybody know why my Desktop freezes/crashes when trying to open My Documents & My Computer.
Double clicking on the Icon partly displays contents and then crashes.
Other icons on the DeskTop work OK ie Broadband.

Ive run several Adaware scans but with no success.
Broadband is also running somewhat slower.

If using XP do the following.

Go to Start>control panel>Admin tools>Event viewer and click on Application error records and this will give you a better idea as to what is happening, if you see red marks, double click on that entry and it will point to an app with the problem, or you could had a corrupted file or folder that windows doesn't like in your " my docs folder"

Or you my need to download Tweak ui from m/soft free, to rearrange your desktop Icons in the start menu from "my Documents" TO "my computer".

See how you get on with the first!
