My computer will not open

By Casemaker ·
Hi,
I have a computer that is usually connected to a domain. when I log in as the normal user to the domain, but not connected to the domain I cannot open my computer. The mouse changes like it is going to open and then nothing. I get a Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. This happens connected to the domain also. I can log into the local computer using the old user name for the pc and everything works fine. Safe mode all is well. Only this user. No virus or spyware. I scanned with several scanners and cleaned all. Hijack this found some toolbars but not much.

We had a similar problem: windows explorer would sometimes not run at all, sometimes die in the middle of browsing folders.

We traced it to a conflicting .dll. WS-FTP, old version seems to conflict with it. When it installs, it must replace one of the .dll's used. On machines that we switched to filezilla this never happens.

If you have ws-ftp try un-installing it.
(you can always put it back on tho need to setup sessions).

Try to use Process Explorer, Filemon and Regmon to see if you have any bad network links.

For example, see:
