Explorer.exe Problems

  Josheo 00:14 10 Aug 06

There seems to be a strange error that occurs everytime I start or close a game.

Everytime I start a game the screen flashes a couple of times and goes back to desktop where the following error comes up "Explorer.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

This happens when i start up a game or just after I close a game, and it doesn't matter which game I try it keeps doing it no matter what. It doesn't stop me from playing the games but it is an annoyance that I would like to see fixed and this is the best place to seek help =)).

Hope to hear some suggestions soon, thanks!

What operating system?

Try the system file checker



sfc /scannow

There is I think a Explorer.exe Virus or Malaware going round
