Windows Explorer Shutdown Problem

  Megs 01:37 12 Aug 2003

I was downloading a large .avi file so left my pc running while I went to work, on my return I was told my daughter had 'got at' the pc and was presented with windows open everywhere as she had been randomly clicking the mouse.I closed everything she had opened and saw the download had been completed, however when I try to get to the file windows explorer encounters a problem and shuts down, I downloaded the file to a specific folder, and no matter how I try to navigate to it the minute the folder opens revealing the file, windows explorer encounters a problem and shuts down, I just can't think what she has done which has caused this, or how to rectify it, any ideas would be gratefully received as it is a large file which I would rather not download again, Thanks.

Try usinf START the FIND/SEARCH and move the file from there.

Or if you are using 98 or ME then Go Add/Remove programs and choose MS Internet Explorer and when you click on remove you will get 3 options choose REPAIR.

If you are using XP then to repair IE is dependent on you having either an XP cd or a copy of IE6 on a cover cd.
