Windows 7 Navigation Pane Detaches itself from the main explorer windows RRS feed


  • Hi,

    First, please try Clean Boot to determine whether the 3rd party software cause this.

    You may follow the instruction in the link below.


    If the issue persists, try Safe Mode and Last known good configurations.

    Also, to restore the system to an earlier pointer which do not have this situation is an easier way.

    Meantime, separate the explorer process to two different processes and then use the Process Monitor to check the threads in the explorer process.

    This can let you know that the explorer invoked what kind of dll files and better trouble-shooting your issue.

    Also, you can use ShellExView to disable 3rd party plug-ins.

    Download Process Monitor at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645.
