Explorer.exe error while searching

By lathe ·
The OS is Win 2000 and when the user try to
start search (search for files and folders - Windows exploer) an error appears "Explorer.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You will need to restart the program.
An error log is being created. "

I tryed all the Microsoft solutions like
installing service pack 2 and removing unwanded softwares which is installed by the user and still no luck.

Any solutions !!, thanks in advance.

Explorer.exe error while searching

Hi,
The only thing I can find that comes close is technet article Q319124 (you can search for that string at microsoft.com/technet ) which states -

"This behavior can occur if you install Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 and there
is a program or a service installed on your computer that is incompatible with
Internet Explorer 6."

If this fits, the advice from MS is to uninstall IE6 and return to an earlier version. Hope this helps.....

I had the smar problem, and I had tried reinstalling Internet explorer but it did not fix it. I finally after a couple days of agony installed Service pack 3 andit corrected my problem. I see you have installed sp2 , but now try sp3.
