Windows Explorer stops working RRS feed

  • Frage

  • Everytime I go to my computer and click on a drive icon windows explorer shuts down and restarts.   It works ok if I access it through the libraries icon on task bar.  Removed nvidia video drivers to no effect.  Event viewer gives the following error:

    Faulting application name: Explorer.EXE, version: 6.1.7100.0, time stamp: 0x49ee918d

  • Hi Hygienist,

    Can you create the following registry key hierarchy in the registry:
    [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting\LocalDumps\explorer.exe\ ]
    In the explorer.exe key, create a REG_EXPAND_SZ value named DumpFolder and set the data for the value to %systemdrive%\explorerdumps .  Ensure the %systemdrive%\explorerdumps folder exists, and then cause the crash to happen.  There should be a dump file in %systemdrive%\explorerdumps.

    ZIP the dump file, and then upload the ZIP file somewhere. (You may wish to password-protect the ZIP file, and privately share the password with those you choose to allow to examine the contents.)

  • Hi there I'm having the same problem with the same error and I think it is related to Aero. Do you have some solution for this?

    I have been incurring application errors with Windows Explorer at an alarming frequency during the past few days. The event log from the most recent error this morning follows. Ideas? Thanks.

    Hi,

    It seems this issue can be caused by corrupted ExplorerFrame.dll. Please check the following similar thread could help:

    Windows Explorer stops working

    http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7itproperf/thread/169f3d8d-b31a-4208-9bdb-34ac09245c0f

    In addition, you can try to run SFC to scan the system files.

    1. Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.

    2. In the results area, right-click cmd.exe, and then click Run as administrator. You will be prompted to type the password for an administrator account. Click Continue if you are the administrator or type the administrator password. Then, click Continue.

    3. At the command prompt, type Sfc /scannow, and then press ENTER.

    The scan may take some time and prompt you to insert Windows Vista disc. After that, please restart the computer and re-register the file ExplorerFrame.dll and check the result.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Vincent-

    Thanks for the response!

    I ran the scan & it came back clean. Honestly, I don't think that I've ever experienced any integrity violations using scannow.

    I've uploaded a .dmp file to my SkyDrive account if you have time to take a look (https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=7C41C68C6993E70D!281&authkey=!ADlJ27S_XJEAsyY).

    Thanks much.

    A few updates...

    Instead of re-registering the ExplorerFrame.dll file, I ran the Update Readiness tool. It appeared to have worked until I tried accessing Windows Update. When I clicked on 'Optional Update', Explorer crashed again (event text below...DUser.dll culprit now).

    Running this tool did fix a long-running User Profile issue though.

    One thing that I noticed after running the Readiness tool is that the CheckSUR log noted 2 errors as follows:

    I can upload .dmp files if you need to see them.

    Anyone here have any thoughts? Thanks.
