I have had problems since I updated to the point where the file explorer was removed and windows explorer 6 became the only way to find and open. However, as I have put in so many Windows updates and patches, I cannot really tell when this problem exactly started.
About 50% of the time, and I can find no pattern in this, when I click on a file icon to open it, Explorer closes. It tells me there is an error and that it must close, but it does not tell me what the error is.
Your problems is obviously a lot more serious than mine. Did you ever resolve it. If so, did you come across anything that might help me?
