Re: Explorer crashes when trying to open a folder on a shared folder on a Win 2003 server
Not much in the way of a solution, but at least know that you're not alone.
This has been occuring with my one Vista client, though I'm running Longhorn
on my domain, not Server 2003. As with your situation, I don't have these
issues with my XP clients. One suggestion was to disable ipv6, which I've
done but haven't seen any benefit to date.
I've even had explorer crash at startup on the Vista client. Very
frustrating, but I plan to keep looking.
