Whe does windows explorer keep crashing?

By srizzotto ·
I am running Windows 98SE. Windows explorer causes me to reboot my computer several times a day. I have tried the windows shortcut for explorer "C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE /n,/e,/select,C:\" and have also deleted the keys in the registry via regedit from a previous Techrepublic article. I may get to use Windows explorer a few times at the beginning of the day before it decides to stop responding. What can I do to fix this??

Hi,

Windows explorer will hang while waiting for a device to respond.

Make sure you have the latest drivers for your CD as well as the latest BIOS. ...and strangely enough - for your video card.

Does it ever unfreeze? If you leave it long enough?

Cheers,
Tim.

confirm that it is explorer by "ctrl-alt-del" see what if anything is "not responding". i have one machine that does the same though it has turned out to be my ISP rather than explorer. worth noting that the first time around with this explorer was showing as the "not responding" as was the ISP.
