"Windows Explorer Has Stopped Working" Or "Adobe Photoshop Has Stopped Working"
Jul 13, 2012
Recently my computer has been force closing applications like Photoshop and Windows Explorer. It usually happens when I right click in Explorer or try to open anything in Photoshop. When it happens, a dialogue box comes up that says "Windows Explorer has stopped working" or "Adobe Photoshop has stopped working" Under the details it displays this information:
Problem Event Name:APPCRASH
I installed Photoshop 7.0 about 6 months ago with Windows 7, 64-bit operating system. It successfully installed and I have been using it with no issues. Over this weekend, it just stopped working and I get the following error:
"Unable to continue because of a hardware or system error. Sorry, but this error is unrecoverable."
I have uninstalled Photoshop and tried to reinstall it but still have the same issue.
I get this message a lot lately and today, it's just constant - to the point that I cannot get into my documents and work with them.grapefox grapefox has chosen the best answer to his/her question.Click here to view the answer that was selected.
Having a problem the past 2 days, when going into one particular file on my c drive I am getting windows explorer has stopped working and am prompted to restart or the infamous check for an online solution.I am able to open every other folder on this drive and have no issues, have tried a sfc /scannow but found no errors.
When I start the computer it all seems normal until the desktop appears and the icons load. Before I can do anything I get a pop up saying Windows Explorer has stopped working. I have the option to restart windows or check on line for a solution. Both options give the same results. The icons disapperar and then reappear but I get the same pop up before I can do anything.I recently had a huge malware problem that I was working through with CatByte in this
It initially started when I downloaded a torrent that was a folder containing a video. Once the download had completed I attempted to open the folder but I got the message "Windows Explorer has stopped working - windows is checking for a solution to the problem", then a different windows pops up with "Windows explorer is restarting". After a few seconds the start bar vanishes then comes back almost immediately. I thought that possible the folder I had downloaded was corrupt so tried deleting it, but when I right clicked on the folder I got the same. I used a program called Glary utilities to permanently delete the folder and that did the trick.A few days passed and I used utorrent to download another, different video, which was also contained in a folder, and I am having the same message come up on this one - "Windows Explorer has stopped working - windows is checking for a solution to the problem" This is the only folder, as far as I'm aware, that this happens with. One time when I tried to open it the following came up instead of the usual "windows explorer has stopped" - The instruction at 0x0a04b890 referenced memory at 0x033f3d0e. The memory could not be read. Click on OK to terminate this program. run scndisk, chkdisk, spybot S&D, malwarebytes, Avast and Microsoft security essentials and some registry cleaners/fixers but nothing has helped. I also downloaded a program called "WER_Explorer" which apparently creates a dump file whenever the error occurs, but I can't open make any sense of it all. I downlaoded the above program from [URL]. I can access the folder when I run in safe mode, and the folder is shared on a home network and I can access it from my laptop.
Ok first of all im sirgail or giga from philippines and im new to the forum. I came here to seek help about my problem its been 3 days already been looking for a solution with my problem but no luck on finding a topic with same problem with me[CODE]whenever i click close the program or check online for a solution and close the program still it will popup again ( the error). Its annoying but somehow i manage to skip it by pressing ctrl+alt+delete task manager and click processes and end process the explorer.exe in order for me to use the internet and browse but the only problem is i cant go to "My computer" drives cause the error will popup again and i cant right click on the desktop and the task bar is not there cant even see the windows or press the windows startup
Everytime I wanted to open my folder and files, this thing appear on my screen. Then, it refreshed everything and the folder that I opened is gone. So, i have to open that folder again and still this windows appear again. It's hard for me to open a folder because of this. I have tried the ways in the internet and it's not working at all.
when i try to open video files,windows explorer has stopped working message appear. no matter what program i open video files in i get "windows explorer has stopped working" before i can even open any videos it doesn't matter where, what type, program, the video file is in this error happens, i tried WMP11, media player classic homecinema & VLC media player?
While I am working in my computer, reading email or just working in a software program, I periodically get this message that Windows Explorer has stopped working (and then an explanation that it is trying to fix it). Then it continues with another message about trying to fix it and it closes the program.I don't know why this is happening but a lot of times I am in Windows Live Mail.I have Windows 7 Home Premium, 64 bit (built by my computer store (Dnet Computers). I didn't put the specs in because I wasn't sure what to put in.
When have to right click on desktop and Windows explorer I get the message "Windows Explorer has stopped Working" Restarting Windows explorer. This makes it difficult to do anything that requires a right click.
as the post title suggests, i have had system problems since removing Antimalware Doctor. no trace of the virus seems to be on my computer but i still get the error message that Windows Explorer has stopped working. i have read other threads and followed the instructions as well as trying the suggestion of sfc.exe but when i try to open sfc.exe a CMD window pops up for a split second then quits and nothing else appears to happen. is there anything else i can try?
I constantly get a loop of "Windows Explorer has stopped working" errors. I've been trying to resolve this for hours now, I've looked at other threads similar to my problem but nothing seems to work. I'm currently on Safe Mode as this is the only way I can do anything without getting the error.
Here is AppCrash report: Version=1 EventType=APPCRASH EventTime=129004320084720403 ReportType=2 ...........
I have no restore points in system restore, already tried.
I'm hoping fr soem input on a recent issue that I've started to encounter where Windows 7 'freezes' and my only option is a 'hard reset' via held power button and restart.This has only started happening in the last week or so, and seems to only (and nearly always) happen after I've shut down a game (one of several) running via Steam.The games themselves will work fine, but after I come back out to desktop/Steam then Windows will stop to respond after a couple of instructions. Ctrl-Alt-Delete will fail to bring up the Task Manager screen etc.
My mom has an HP Mini 210-1044NR laptop. It no longer boots up right. I've tried to get the desktop screen to load in normal mode and safe mode, yet I keep getting the same error message.It says Windows Explorer has stopped working. Windows can check online for a solution to the problem the next time you go online.If I click close the program, it gives her a black screen and nothing happens. I cannot get to the start menu, even. Ctrl + Alt + Del brings up task manager, but it doesn't really give me much to work with.I did have the desktop loaded at one point, but then it all froze up and shut down.The problem details are:Problem Event Name: InPageErrorError Status Code: c0000010Faulting Media Type: 00000003OS Version:6.1.7600.2.0.0.768.11Locale ID: 1033Is there any way to fix this? Maybe bring the desktop back up? Or even get to the start menu to run something and fix it? I am going crazy trying to figure out what to do
Internet explorer has stopped working, Internet explorer is restarting.windows explorer has stopped working, windows explorer is restarting. I have emailed Microsoft 3 times and they have given me MANY things to try but I am a computer tech, so I had already tried them all.It is all over the internet so my computer details should not matter.It is ALL over the Internet about this problem and no one seems to know the answer.Of course, you can format but that is not a "fix" for it or how to stop it from happening.
I have a new laptop with windows 7 installed and Internet Explorer 9 being used.I have checked various options thats other have posted but they do not appear to be resolving the problem.Typical example f the problem....I get an email with a link, click and the link opens within browser. If the link then has a document witin it to open (I think they are PDF'S) the browser comes up with the following message:A problem caused prog to stop working - it then asks you to close the page.
Faulting application name: explorer.exeFaulting module name: ntdll.dllAny solutionsI've formatted my windows 7 and still goes for the same problem. I've used google and there are lot of people who have this same kind of problem too and no solutions yetAny idea what may cause this? Could there be some services which should be enabled or disabled or something else causing this?
I'm having problems with Windows, every time I open internet explorer, I get the message: "Internet Explorer has stopped working. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available". I click close or X on the notice and it just keeps popping up.....I have to restart my computer to stop it. I can only get to google chrome. How do I correct this....
ive been having a problem with internet explorer crashing since i bought my laptopim using ie9 and i keep getting the msg saying internet explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close (i appoligize if its not the exact words). than it closes all my programs down. i dont know if it has to do with another problem i have been having while playing facebook games and watching movies using flash player. right out of the blue my game or movie (whichever im doing) freezes than either says i need to update flashplayer or it just shows a big "!" were my game or movie should be.
I have upgraded to Internet explorer 9 a long time ago. When it first came out as a matter of fact but now when I use ANYTHING that I want to print out (Like MapQuest.com)It will not print any more. I can fire up Fire fox and all printing works just fine. It didn't work even when I had didn't Fire Fox Installed. I just installed Fire Fox to try to see if it would work for my printing needs.why Internet explorer has stoped printing? Right after not printing the web page crashes also.
Had a bad storm last night, so I shut down the comp. Restarted this a.m. tried to stream the Arsenal match and mozilla would crash every time I tried to leave the home page. Went to IE, watched the match, and then began to TS moz. After a bit I decided to unistall. Upon trying to reinstall i get a corrupt file error msg during extraction. I then tried to d.l. Chrome and had problems w. that too. Yet amazingly enough, IE works fine. Is this Microsoft just f'in w. me 'cause I'm not amused?I also notice that in my start menu I have no quick select icons for network connections, control panel, etc.
