Hello. I have a problem regarding Windows XP Proffesional (SP2) - with it's explorer to be more precise ("explorer.exe" program).
I'm typing this message via some other computer because I don't have Internet on the computer with the problem I'm talking about at all (don't have a telephone line, but I'm planing to use cablenet), the point being: I can't send an error message to the Microsoft!
As soon as the operating system loads-up, the error message appears - saying that something's wrong with "explorer.exe" program.
When I close that error window everything seems normal, but when I try to open something on Desktop (or do anything on it - as a matter of fact) it show's that same old message again (and again (when I try to do something), and again, and again - until it finaly "clogs-up", and pauses).
Latter on, a sand-clock appears as a cursor and it stays that way - I can move it, but everything on Desktop is freezed (can't even select an icon).
I tried Norton SystemWorks 2005, and it's WinDoctor doesn't fix the above mentioned problem (it finds some others and fixes it, but it doesn't repair the main problem).
I can, however, browse hard drives using (e.g.) TotalCommander (when freshly restarted), I can run most of the programs using such method...
The same problem apperas when Logged-on as User or as Administrator; it appears in "Safe Mode" too (identical symptoms - always). I have a HyperThreading processor - maybe it's some problem in connection with it? Help! I'm kind-of short on time - I need my computer to do some work, and I need a solution as quick as possible...
Obviously it (the problem) has to do with "Explorer.exe" itself, but what is the solution? (and - don't say "reinstalling the operating system", only selectively applicable solutions are wanted)
