Event Viewer Wont Load / Explorer Crash

Sep 11, 2009

So I'm still chasing down why explorer keeps crashing, it's quite annoying. But I guess in doing so I messed with some setting (or maybe I didn't and this happened) and now my event viewer wont run, I even tried running it through cmd with the following commands: eventvwr.msc /s and just eventvwr.msc

I just tried to run event viewer to chase down my explorer crash, then that wont even run, I have no idea what the heck is going on... There's no "cause" except explorer usually crashes when I right click, or when I'm in my desktop folder. Those are the two main things. As far as the eventviewer, I'm clueless. If need be, I can do system restore, but more than likely that's an extreme measure for such a small issue. Its more an annoyance than anything else, it doesnt really bother me lol. Could it be AVG's context menu?

All I know is that this is really getting annoying, but anyway, if you guys have any suggestions that would be great. Do I need to post any screenshots of anything??? I can post them if needed. BTW I'm running Vista x64 SP2 on a HP dv4 lappy, the only taskbar items running are AVG, my pointer, and sound...

Explorer Keeps Crashing

Aug 4, 2008

My Vista works fine in safe mode. I uninstalled almost every program I ever installed, I wrote down all of the processes that were running in safe mode and then rebooted and killed each process one by one, replicating the crash inciting event...opening any folder, after killing each process until I was down to the processes that were running in safe mode...and the ones that kept restarting themselves and I can't get the problem fixed.

I am using an HP Pavilion dv9000 running the pre-installed Vista Home Premium. The HP rebuild disk boots up into a repair screen, says it is repairing and if it works it will restart normally, which it does but I still have the same problem. I have run every anti virus/anti virus I could get my hands on (none of which seem to be getting rid of this Virtumonde piece of %*&, which is the least of my worries at this point unless it is causing the crashes).

I am about ready to take my laptop to the shooting range with me or upgrade to Windows XP because I have honestly not seen a single value added by Vista. If anyone has any ideas I would gratefully listen. If not, I think I am shooting this hard drive (really) and restarting with XP or some flavor of **ix and running XP in VMware.

Explorer Crashing On 2nd Partition...

Sep 27, 2009

I have I laptop in which I have vista installed on a HDD that is in three partitions. One is strickly for the OS and programs, the second is for all audio, videos, live cd downloads, etc., and the third is the recovery partition (my vista is an OEM installation) I have a problem that arises every once in awhile which involves windows explorer crashing when I access the partition with all my audio etc on it. it does it every once and awhile and I have traced the problem back to the windows temp folder. apparently something happens and it makes explorer go crazy untell i delete everything in the temp folder (via ccleaner)

my question is what could be causing this to happen and if anyone else has/had this problem and has found a more permenant solution then clearing the temp folder everytime it happens.

Explorer.exe Is Crashing On Windows

Jun 28, 2008

I have and Windows Vista Business N laptop (Sony VAIO BX297XP) and on that machine Explorer.exe is crashing very often, which is very annoying. I usally kill the process and then restart the process after that it works again. It started happening after the install of Service Pack 1

Things I have done, and have no effect:
*Updated my drivers
*Defragmented all my disks, which I also have sheduled weekly
*Runned Chkdsk, seems to be fine
*Checked for Viruses with Trend Micro Housecall, I have no viruses
*Checked for Spyware with Windows Defender, found nothing
*With ShellExView I have disabled all non Microsoft Shell Extensions........

When the Explorer crashed I was able to create a dump file of the process. Next I analyzed it with Debugging Tools for Windows and have an debuglog. And that's where i got stuck. I don't understand anything of that debuglog. Beneath I have included it. Does someone understand and see what the problem is?...........

Windows Explorer Crashing Randomly

Mar 23, 2008

I am using an Asus G1S with Vista Home Premium 32 installed. I've had my computer since June of last Year. It's been working perfectly fine up until about a week ago. Windows Explorer started crashing multiple times and randomly. There has been no reason for it and I can't duplicate it. Sometimes it's after I finish watching a video file in Media Player Classic, sometimes when coming back from sleep mode. I've tried reading for solutions and can't find anything similar to my problem. I've reported and searched for fixes every time but to no avail.

This is the Error report I am receiving.

Windows Explorer Keeps Crashing/restarting

Feb 2, 2010

i saw a video of someone i subscribed to on Internet, and he posted a video about a 'god mode' folder, and it was real, except he forgot to put '32 bit only'.., so what it was was you had to made a new empty folder on your desktop, and rename it something like 'godmode.{j74h37858g83e453e4g74c}' but right after i did, the folder disappeared, and windows explorer kept restarting about every 5-10 seconds, and i was just lucky i had another user on this computer which does still work. but i really need that first account back (it was the administrator account). so yeah, any thoughts on this would be helpful. *also, i forgot to note that safe mode doesn't work either; the screen just keeps flashing black every 5-10 seconds, which is obviously still the windows explorer.

Constant Explorer Crashing (file Viewer)

Mar 14, 2008

6 months ago i bought a new lappy and its been going really good with vista on it, no crashes of anykind that i can remember, but last week its just started playing up, Whenever i do anything explorer crashes, sometimes it resets itself and other times i have to load task manager and Run explorer.exe to get my desktop back. anytime i load IE7 it resets itself or anytime i load a new page it does it. It does it when i load explorer (file viewer) and within 10 sec it crashes and closes that with no error box or anything, simply resets or crashes and dosent come back. Same with control panel etc. i've tried my nod 32 virus scanner is up to date and i've run a spyware scan but its still crashing constantly. When i first load windows a missing file error pops up that never used to aswell, but its a different file missing each time i boot up.

Dreme Scene 3 Content Crashing Explorer?

Apr 24, 2008

I am a vista ultimate owner, and have downloaded the dremescene features as well as the older content. Recently with the patch to SP1, I downloaded via the windows update when it became available. Tonight I downloaded the Dremescene 3 content as it became available.

However when I go in to see what the content contains, my Windows Explorer crashes every time.... Regardless if through windows explorer or through the control panel window. Is anyone else experiencing this phenomenon? I.E. is it a Video Codec that didn't get installed correctly and therefore I just need to download and install it so that Vista and Windows Media Player can decode and show the previews?

Solution :: Explorer.exe Repeatedly Crashing In Vista Ultimate X64

Mar 18, 2009

A few days ago I began experiencing an odd behavior on my Vista box, every time I opened the start menu and typed something into the search box explorer.exe crashed. Further investigation discovered that was also happening when typing anything into the Run command, into a window address bar and even when typing anything into a New Shortcut address.

NOTE: If you just want to know the solution go to the end of the post .

Using the great tools provided by Sysinternals and by Microsoft, I launched my comprehensive investigation of the problem.

First of all, I set WinDBG to be the default JIT debugger for crashed applications by running Code: windbg.exe -I.

Next, I caused explorer.exe to crash (which was easy) and analyzed the dump using !analyze -v.

Studying the dump I didn't find any interesting clues except that the call stack of the faulting thread showed that some ole32 and urlmonitor extensions of explorer were there.

So, using Autoruns (by Sysinternals) I first disabled 3rd party extensions like FileZilla shell extension and WinRAR shell extension. Crashed explorer, it restarted and the problem persisted. Next, I disabled all OLE32 and URLMON related extensions, but still explorer was crashing.

Well, if at first you don't succeed - USE MORE EXPLOSIVES!!!

Next, I disabled everything in the Explorer tab of Autoruns hoping that it wouldn't break anything and stop explorer from crashing but to no avail.

Now I got pissed, I launched Process Monitor and Process Explorer, and started crashing the hell out of explorer while comparing the dumps, call stacks, thread IDs, thread methods, file accessed by explorer prior to the crash and registry keys accessed by explorer prior to the crash.

Well, the thread causing the crash was running SHLWAPI.DLL!PathIsRootW and by examining the output of Process Monitor I could see that it was looking for whatever I typed into the address box in PATH folders, favorites and search locations.

Finally, I decided to become BFF with the WinDBG help and find out what else the !analyze extension could offer. Apparently, beside the (very useful) -v switch it also provides the -f and -hang switches that give you more information.

Using these I found that the problem was cause by urlmon.dll, specifically by the ~CUri destructor. From the call stack I could see that ntdll!RtlFreeHeap was the last method to be called, and it was called by the ~CUri destructor and caused a Heap Corruption Exception.

Anyway, since I was really annoyed by this problem for two days by now and in an hour I had to be at a wedding I did something that I regret, I used the first solution that came to mind.

!!! SOLUTION !!!

I deleted the Internet Explorer browsing history (address history).

It solved the problem which probably was caused by some address (and could be a bug in urlmon.dll) but now I can't further investigate to find what was the exact address in the history that caused the crash.

I apologize for the long story but I feel the need to pass the knowledge to others.

There might be some holes in the plot, but that is probably the best I can do at 3:30 AM after a long day....

Windows Explorer Crashing When Installing Games, Also Dvd Turns Dead

Feb 21, 2010

im installing AvP 3 and i just cant do it.

apparently for some reason the dvd stops reading...

when i enter "my computer" and try to go into drive d(my dvd) it just crashes,

then i have to wait from a range of 5 mins to 1.5 hours for windows explorer to restart...

and the game installation crashes too...

that happens with other dvds and cds too.

i have changed various dvd drives from various companies and i have updated all of their drivers...the problem is consistent.

im tired of buying new dvd drives and throwing them away for nothing.

obviously its a vista issue cause on my old pc everything works just fine(i have xp on that one).

most of the games i just copy the dvds files on my portable harddrive using my old pc and then do the installations through that harddrive on my current pc...

but this game is a "steam" game and that wont work...

any ideas?

ps:its not a hardware issue,its definately a windows vista issue.

Lid Open Event

Mar 20, 2009

I've just got my new Alienware m17 and I can't find a way to disable the "Lid Open" event. I've disabled the lid from making the system go into stand-by, but the moment I open the lid, it wakes up again. I've tried using : Code: powercfg -devicedisablewake "ACPI Lid"
But all I get is "You do not have permission to enable or disable device wake", and yes... I am logged in as an Administrator.

All lid related articles on this site (and others) seem only to refer to problems with Closing the lid rather than Opening it. I know it's a minor issue, but I don't want to wake up my system until I press the power button. I've even checked the BIOS settings but there isn't even a Power section.

Event ID 2017 And 2021

Mar 6, 2009

I'm running Vista Ultimate x64 with SP1 and I'm having an issue with file sharing. If I try to copy files from an XP machine to the Vista machine, the System log on the Vista PC fills up with 2017 (The server was unable to allocate from the system nonpaged pool because the server reached the configured limit for nonpaged pool allocations) and 2021 and I get an error on the XP machine about there not being enough memory to fullfill the request. I have tried a couple of registry entries, like disabling SMB2 and setting MaxMpxCt to 255; neither of which have resolved the issue. I'm still able to browse the network from the Vista machine, so it looks like it's only incoming connections into the Vista machine that are the problem.

75,000 Identical Entries In Event Log

Feb 18, 2009

Every three or four days I review my Event Log. The log for two days ago on my laptop (Vista Home Premium SP1) system has approximately 75,000 entries that are identical, all logged over a four-second period. The entry reads:

(Event 51)
An error was detected on device DeviceHarddisk2DR2 during a paging

According to MS, if this occurs on a primary drive (like "C" I'm guessing - they don't say, actually) the drive could be failing. They go on to say "Otherwise, no user action is required". The error cites "harddisk2" so unless MS has decided that drive numerations start a "2", I'm guessing this is something having to do with an external drive; possibly one of my USB drives. What is strange is that I haven't plugged in an any drives for five days or so.

Should I just mark this down as some sort of Vista glitch, as I am tempted to do? Or, is this just one more thing to worry about? I do know what paging operations are, and why they sometimes fail, but this particular set of entries puzzles me.

Event Viewer Not Start

Apr 7, 2008

I've been struggling with this for a couple of days now without any success, I noticed the the event viewer would not start, it reported that "Event Service is unavailable. Verify that the service is running" Well, the service was not running and my attempts to start Windows Event log result in an "Error 5: Access is denied"

So to Google I go. I tried several things that I found there, taking ownership of files, resetting the whole system to default permissions by using a Microsoft
utility. That reset everything except one folder that it reported as an error. That was the EtRTeventLog folder, this seems to locked out completely. I renamed the folder using Unlocker and Windows recreated a new folder but I still have the same problem.

Event Viewer In Administrative Tools

I have a sound trigger for the 'Open program' event in Vista Basic sp2 x32 When my computer is idle and I "here" a program open the only thing I have to go by is the time it occurred. If I want to go to Event Viewer in Administrative Tools and see what this event was that triggered the event sound I'm overwhelmed with a bunch of categories and sub-categories. In order to find what opened at the specific time I need to check each category and sub-category. That is a real pain in the ass. I find no search capabilities in Event Viewer unless I've missed it. Is there some way of making a hunt for a specific time easier in Event Viewer? Or, is there some 3rd party software with the capability to sort all events by data and time??

Event Name: BlueScreen - On Home Premium

Nov 10, 2009

I've searched thoroughly for this but could not find an aswer to this problem I'm having on my laptop. I've had a BSOD twice now within the last month. After the first one, I had to do a complete re-install as system files were damaged. I thought it must've been some virus, but apparently it's not, as I've done a new install and it happened again. This time so far it's seems ok after the reboot though.

The funny thing is that the system running extremely well otherwise - there are no other problems, slowdowns, freezes, hangs, nothing like that. Here's what I was doing just before the BSOD: (on both occasions, the circumstances were EXACTLY the same!) -I was surfing the net with IE8

-other programs running in the background: utorrent, Total Commander, Notepad As I say, both times I was doing the same: reading some forum in IE8 with exactly the same apps running in the background and then suddenly bang!..........

Can Set Key Words In The Firewall To Flag This Event?

You receive the message that your computer is infected and you can see the scan running behind the message box with the OK button? Is there a process to follow and a time frame before all the bad things take root? I have received the message a few times and did the following with what appears to be positive results:

Do not click OK!! Try to close the window with the X box. Shut the computer down in normal fashion. If you cannot do a hard shutdown.Reboot into the safe mode with no networking and run your scans.Reboot normally update your antivirus and scan again. I throught perhaps someone with a lot more knowledge could post a process to follow when you get this message. Is there a way to set key words in the firewall to flag this event??

Install Vista 64 Event Log Errors

Sep 2, 2008

i have been getting issues with lock ups in vista, not sure what is causing the issue but suspect its driver related possibly with video drivers. I am sure this has been talked about previously but have tried lots of other peoples fixes but still get the same problem. Clean install vista 64 with no problems or event log errors, do a create system restore point. Install crucial updates only restart and check event viewer with no errors, create system restore.

Install latest Nvidia mobo drivers restart and check event viewer no errors, create a restore point. Install Nvidia beta drivers restart and check event viewer with lots of errors seemingly appear unrelated to driver so uninstall drivers and do a system restore point to before the install of drivers. Cleaned log of errors and restarted to make sure logs are still clean. Installed signed Nvidia drivers 177.41 and restarted and checked logs to find i still got some new errors but not as many, during the point of loading video drivers the first time i get errors and random lockups.

I was going to uninstall the drivers again but it locked up so after reboot when i got back to the desktop it was as if i didnt install the video drivers at all only the directory on C: was there but no interface or anything wierd? I then installed the drivers again and restarted, it seem to shut down and boot up much faster this time and seem to work fine at this point but still get random lock ups with no info in event viewer or BSOD?

Event Log, Audio Output, And Screensaver

Jul 29, 2009

I recently turned my computer (HP Pavilion Verde Special Edition a6645f) on after 4 days of dormancy. It runs Windows Vista.

Event Viewer Time: System Freeze

Jul 29, 2009

here's the event: After uneventful computing for several hours this AM - I began to play Vista Spider Solitaire for some relaxation & the entire game/cursor - everything froze as I was about to win. Typical! Please note the time discrepancy below from the event log - indicating the correct date/time (7/21) from the log as opposed to the 'description' that indicates the wrong time and date from the previous day (7/20).
