end programme - explorer.exe

  Dannyb 07:43 04 Nov 05

Every time I close down my PC I get a box appear with the message "End programme explorer.exe" so I wait for the blue line to run across. When the blue reaches the other side another box appears which reads "this programme is not responding..." I then have two options, End now or Cancel. I end it and the PC then shuts down. Can anybody tell me how to sort this out. I have Windows XP home installed.

I have seen this from time to time and it seems to sort itself out after a few normal starts and stops.

It's been like it for several weeks now and has'nt sorted itself out yet. Really frustrating though.

You need to put a space between sfc and /scannow
