I've always used Spybot, but I'll take the advice guys. Thanks, I'll report soon.
It will be interesting to see what you find out, salamidong. Good luck.
If removing SpyBot doesn't help.... Most problems such as you describe are caused by bugs in "shell extensions". These are plug-ins to Explorer that provides all the stuff you see in the context menu that right-click gives you. Even with looking at the dump it's impossible to say which one is at fault (or even if this is the problem), but if it is the problem you can find it in just a few searches.. Just hope I can walk you through the process… LOL
the windows explorer crash is being caused by the spybot search & destroy program. causes no problems on some computers but does on other. spybot knows about the problem.
Gee, I was thinking that was it... and really didn't want to lead someone through the shell extensions.
when it crashes I uninstall the program & when it does not crash I leave it alone.
As I always say... If it ain't broke, don't fix it. lol
Sorry it took me so long to answer. The problem has been solved after I uninstalled Spybot. I've always used Spybot, is sad that it's causing those kinds of troubles. Thank to everyone specially 2oldGeek for your patience. You are a great instructor.
You are more than welcome, solomong.. And anytime you need help just ask.
Oh, thanks for the flowers...
hopefully dead flowers unless you give them to the wife then live flowers.
If I gave the wife dead flowers, she'd be on me like a Duck on a Junebug!!!!
I said you keep the dead flowers but give her the live flowers for brownie points. on other hand if you give her the dead flowers we get to watch as she does you in which might be better then a movie at the theater.
Tightwad!! always looking for a way to save money.............
but it would be at your expense. I like spending money when I can justify it to myself as I only have to answer to myself not anyone else.
Not at my expense.... Hell, I answer myself all the time but, very seldom take the advice I'm handing out. LOL
you didn't get what I meant as you have to answer to your wife whereas I don't as not married so I just have to answer to myself.
I answer to no-one.. I run things at my house!............ like the vacuum, the washer, dryer, etc. etc.
I figured as much, a hen pecked husband.
Hen Pecked!? Hey, feathers make a nice pillow.... lol
