Windows Explorer also does the desktop. And you don't mention that part of the program as malfunctioning.
I would start with booting in safe mode to login into the hidden administrator account (no password unless you changed it). Does it happen there also? If not, make a totally new Windows user and try that in both safe and normal modes.
If the above fails, it might be time to find your XP installation CD and do a repair install from that source. Success isn't guaranteed, however.
Hello everyone! It's my first time on cnet forums! Now this is my problem:
Every time I execute an action that needs to use the windows explorer like opening my computer , control panel windows explorer crashes , in event viewer I found this:
Faulting application explorer.exe, version 6.0.2900.5512, faulting module user32.dll, version 5.1.2600.2180, fault address 0x00009be9.
