any other Explorer.exe errors?
What happens when you try to open My Documents? Or when you try to open Windows Explorer, (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Windows Explorer)?
Select "E", then scroll down to the bottom of the page and follow the instructions for "Explorer crashes - no desktop icons and/or Start button".
Here's the problem:
When I click on Start and go to Search, the Search window does not open and after that I cannot get a response when I click on anything in the Systray including the Start button. To shut down or reboot I have to hit Ctrl/Alt/Del and go to Shut Down.
A window pops up saying "Explorer.exe is not responding. " After rebooting I can use the Start button again and all other buttons unless I try to do a Search. Is is possible to fix this problem without reinstalling all of Win XP ??
