I have one 250G hard drive in my computer partitioned into 3 parts C, D, and E. I also have a 250G external drive K. When trying to explore C drive Windows Explorer hangs up and I have to call the task manager to close it. On other occasions it also happens when exploring other drives including the external one. If it was only the C drive I would conclude that the drive itself was faulty but as it happens sometimes to the external drive I am wondering if Windows Explorer has become corrupted. Do you think it worthwhile using a register repair program, and if so can you recommend one (Free if possible). Chitterlow
Hi Guys I have scanned my C drive and no errors were reported. When I also scanned my machine with the free versions of Regcure and Regfix they tell me I have many problems in my registry they can fix if only I will buy the full versions of the progs (but they would say that wouldn't they) Has anybody tried these programs and found them useful?.
Hi brundle I have just run scannow. A progress bar appeared and when it indicated the scan was complete it disappeared without any comment so I assume it did not find any corrupt files. I also just tried Windows explorer again but the problem persists.
