Explorer.exe keeps stopping when right clicking

  darrenrichie 16:48 25 Oct 04

Hi all,

When i right click certain icons on the desktop (recycle bin for example) my desktop disappears and explorer.exe needs to be restarted in the task manager window. It seems to happen if I try to rename files. It's doing my head in as I have checked for all adware, spyware, viruses etc and nothing seems to help.

I am running xp home on dell dimension 2400. I have a geforce pci 256mb nvidia fx graphics card installed.

Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds a similar problem to mine.

In the SP2 forum, search for "explorer" and the look for the thread "Application pop-up: Explorer.exe - application error". It was originally posted by lesmond.

BurrWalnut's suggestion of changig the boot.ini file got rid of most of my problems, but I still have one. All described in the above thread.

It is to do with DEP.
