Maybe something in context menu (right click menu) crash explorer ?
If i read it right, the problem is only with the files.
If you right click on a folder explorer work fine.

Download [URL="http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shexview.html"][B]from here[/B][/URL][B]ShellexView[/B], and[URL="http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shell_menu_view.html"][B] from here[/B][/URL][B]shellMenuview[/B]

First run ShellMenu.exe and disable evrything you find suspicious.

Then run the ShellexView and do the same.
To disable an item just select it with your mouse and then click the red button on the uper left corner of the Window.

You may need to disable them all and enable them one at the time, to find what cause the problem.

and if biggeo65 had taken the time, which he obviously has not, to read the instructions on that link he would have known that all ready and not reposted that request. [/QUOTE]

When I start typing my answer there was no other answer or link to read instructions from.

I am not a computer geek,my knowledge comes from 20 years searching reading and deal with computer problems, nothing more nothing less, and my answer was about the steps I followed to resolve the specific problem in my computer.

And believe me it took many nights of search and read and discuss to resolve this particular problem,till I had to deal with it manually.

Was never in my intention to repost or ignore specific steps posted from someone else,
I just post the steps I followed to resolve this specific problem,as you clearly can see.

I think it will be wiser to help others without attack anyone that try to help too.

As I wrote I always respect others opinnion, as many know more than I do, I am not a computer geek, and only answer to problems I had to dealt with in the past.

[QUOTE=emilyjason;1205080]I'm having a problem with me desktop PC. When I boot it, it boots properly, but after reaching at desktop with few seconds, it shutdowns automatically. I am unable to find out the reason. Would any body help me?[/QUOTE]

[B]Can you enter in safe mode;
Reboot your PC, and tap F5 usually to ENTER safe mode,

I suspect a driver or a program load on start up.
Or even a malware, but we must eliminate the possibility
of the start up programs first before try other options.

As you in safe mode go to START /RUN and when the box open
type "msconfig" without "" to open msconfig window.

In there click on start up TAB on top, and uncheck everything
that load on start-up ,and do't belong to microsoft.
Even your anti-virus and firewallif you use any.

You can start anti-virus and firewall from within windows later.
See how it went and post back [/B]

[QUOTE=rtllz;1186189]I tried that and it doesn't go into the settings, it just pauses and then shows the error message for like 2 seconds and then shows a blue box saying power on password.[/QUOTE]
[B]Do you ever set a password to ENTER BIOS;
If yes, thyen try to remember it,

If not,or if you CAN'T remember it
you need to remove RTC baterry from motherboad,
OR USE JUMPERS TO RESET BIOS.
That mean you need to remove the back cover from your laptop
and remove the RTC battery, is a battery look like a coin,
or use the jumper on your motherboard to reset it.
If you don't know how to do that, then you need to ask technical support from ΗP.[/B]

[QUOTE=rtllz;1185594]i recently encountered a strange error with my computer, everytime i turn it on it it comes up with a black screen that has the option of entering the bios menu and booting from the network, ive tried going to both of those and they dont work and it comes up with the error message 162-system options not set and then when it goes away a blue box comes up saying power-on password? Can someone please help me solve this problem and get my computer working again. Thanks in advance :/[/QUOTE]
[B]What kind of computer do you have; I mean the brand.
Try to shut down your computer, cut the power off,
restart it with F10, or F1 button pressed,
(that depends on the brand, could be also the DEL button),
to force to ENTER BIOS, and after you enter BIOS highlight
the line says "LOAD BIOS-DEFAULT" and hit ENTER.
Reboot[/B]

open outlook 2003, click on filew menu,
click on Import Export
click on import personal files

and let outlook 2003 import your files.[/B]

[QUOTE=geneliajai;1184777][B]I have been troubled by shitty billy's error windows explorer error for the past 5 months, i use lots of video editing software's, so initially i need lots of codec's. I have installed K-Lite megacodec pack and due to antivirus pro i had to remove my anti virus n number of times but reinstalled the same antivirus. Since then this problem started, when ever i click on "Start-Turn of computer" a message pop-up saying windows explorer has generated error and needs to close, even when i right click on my desktop this message appears, i removed all the codec's but to no use, i repaired my computer using my original windows XP cd and even used this command in windows mode"sfc.exe /scannow" to restore all my original files but the problem hasn't gone, i feel to kill my computer but think i will be the first looser so control myself. Isn't there any solution for windows explorer error, like registry editing or any tool remove this problem.[/B][/QUOTE]

[B]I don't think your problem is codec related.
Usually a 3rd party software can cause such problems
and as you wrote thiw problem occur even when you
try to right click on desktop.

That means a Shell extention (a program that is on a right click list)
can cause this problem [/B]
[B]To troubleshoot this, download ShellExView from here:

run it, and you can see on a list what items you have when your right click with your mouse, (Context menu Items) ...

[B]Υοur laptop has a FN key , on keyboard's bottom left corner
usually, press it while boot to start a diagnostic test, if thiw
is an option.

Some laptops has the above option.

Also if you ENTER BIOS , and disabled the PLUG N' PLAY OS,
and let BIOS adress all the divices , maybe solve the problem.

When you get such messages, can be software
or and hardware related, and we can't have a clear answer.[/B]
