Windows Explorer Has Stopped Working
Help!

I've seen many posts on this around the net in various forums and no one has
an answer.

When I go to view certian directories on my hard drives via Windows
Explorer, I get the message "Windows Explorer Has Stopped Working" and it
will try to restart it but it doesn't...so, I am left with only going to Safe
Mode to view the files...

I've done System Restore, Virus and Spyware scans and just about everything
next to reloading Vista...does ANYONE have a solution to this issue that I
and many people are having?

Re: Windows Explorer Has Stopped Working
Many times the "Windows Explorer Has Stopped Working" error, especially when
browsing folders, is due to a 3rd party entry added to the right-click
context menu of Windows Explorer, and it isn't working out too well,
registry-wise. If you have a program that has added a choice in the menu,
check the program's Options dialog to see if the shell extension can be
turned off. If not, uninstall the program. Or ask for help on how to find
the particular entry in the registry, so that you can delete it. The next
time the error happens, look at the details of the message, and that may
help you figure out the program causing the problem.
