Icons Flash

  sinbad1 15:15 30 Sep 2005

This happens only when doing a search for video files.......other searches are fine.

When i seach for all video's all desktop icons flash it then freezes with the MS error cannot continue and must close.

I have installed the latest graphic drivers.
tried restoreing
repaired icons
there are no viruses or spyware
used regseeker and ccleaner.
My OS is PB P4 2.8 ghz 1MB ram 120g + 40g hard drive.
with Radeon Mayo 9000 pro video card.

Has anyone had this problem or any ideas has to the cause.

You could try the System File Checker. Start, Run, type

sfc /scannow

and click OK. You may be asked to insert your Windows CD.

Thanks for your reply Vog i do not have win cd
I have tried sfc to locate files on c drive ;but did not work ,can only assume these files may be currupt.

I have 3 ghost images which restoring could solve my problem:however would prefer to solve them otherwise.

Is it possible to use sfc to retreive the files needed to repair IE from these ghost images?

" Is it possible to use sfc to retreive the files needed to repair IE from these ghost images?"

I don't see how as you don't know which files are corrupt and SFC won't read from a Ghost image.

I would just restore a Ghost image.

you are probably right , thing is the computer runs fine apart from this one issue, which is more of an annoyance than a problem. Restoring the ghost image may or may not cure this issue.

Loking at error messages, refers to invalid pixel image not sure what this means ;but perhaps this is causing the video search to faulter?
