explorer crashing

  shauny13 21:08 13 Aug 05

Hi, i'm new here, just lately explorer keeps crashing or just hangs when i try and open folders or links in emails or IE. Have run up to date AVG scan aswell as spyware scans (ad aware, spybot and microsoft antispy). No success, still hasn't fixed problem. I run xp pro with IE6and OE6. Any help would be very much appreciated as this is getting annoying.

Try running the system file checker



sfc /scannow

You need the XP CD in the drive. If it autoruns, cancel it.

Do you have a recovery CD?
