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.
