Devices and printers does not open

  Hetti 10:53 29 Jul 2013

When I try to open "Devices and printers" the green progress bar gets there slowly, but when it is right at the finish the Devices and printers does not open.I left it for an hour but no joy,running Win 7. No error message

Any advice appreciated

Are you having opening troubles with any other folders. Or any other troubles at all with your PC

No other problems all seems fine on PC.

If it's only started happening today, you could a reboot, then have another go.

Have you tried doing a 'System Restore' to back before 'Devices and printers' wouldn't open?

Have a look at this thread. Different solutions but to do with services. Near the end of the thread, starting in safe mode, then booting up normally also fixed it.
