Explorer.exe Stops Responding ASAP

Jul 1, 2005

I have been having this problam for a while but I just ignored it until now, because it is pissing me off. If I open a folder(any) some times it wont open, explorer.exe just closes and opens by itself. Some times I have to go to Task nager>Processes>explorer.exe right click on it and End Process Tree and then I have to go and open it using "New Task.." in Task Manager. Then it lets me open a folder but if I don't use the folder for a while and then start using it or close it and then wait and open another folder the same thing happens.

Explorer - Stops Responding On Computer

Sep 11, 2007

I'm getting quite annoyed at the problems that I think Explorer is causing.Things generally run fine until I open Explorer if I need to copy files etc.Most times, but not all the time, it will stop repsonding and i need to end the task in task manager. The rest of the system works without problem.I have attached a Hijack This log file. Even when the log file opened (txt format) it stopped resoponding and I had to use Task Manager to close the log file.

IE Not Responding - Update Internet Explorer Has Been Freezing

Aug 17, 2006

My computer runs Windows XP SP2.. I Know there was a recent update at the beginning of this week my computer automatically downloaded and installed. Since this update my Internet Explorer has been freezing, than a box pops up saying it's not repsonding and it automatically closes out. It does this after using it for less than a minute so it's rather annoyning. I've ran several malware/adware programs as well as my virus program (AVG).. what else can I do to fix this irritating problem?

Not Responding - Internet Explorer And All Other Applications / Programs?

Sep 16, 2006

I am running on windows XP SP2 integrated. I realised that whenever I start my PC,windows does not respond(i.e. when I click on my internet explorer and all other applications / programs,they do not respond).I have to wait for at least 10-15 mins or restart 2 to 3 times,then windows can respond.I really do not know what is going on.I have scanned my PC with noadware but found nothing.Should I reformat my PC or perform a system restore? I am currenting using Intel Pentium III processor with 801 MHz,256MB of RAM.

Not Responding Internet Explorer While Loading Homepage

Aug 8, 2005

When I use Juno on my HP it stops responding while loading its homepage. I can end the program now. Click on Internet Explorer and continue in the Internet. But then come the problem. About a half hour after I close the Internet Explorer. My machine freezes. I pull the plug plug it back in and it boots up like nothing happens. I have a dual boot on this machine. Just put in Linspire about two weeks ago because of this
problem. Juno works fine under Linspire. So I know it is not Juno nor HP so it has to be with Windows XP.

Computer Stops Responding

Dec 5, 2004

This computer has begun to need re-booting many times per day. There are numerous problems commencing with startup, so I'll begin there.I run Ad-aware 6, Spybot S&D and HijackThis frequently in order to try to prevent intrusions, but something seems to have failed!Upon startup, there is (recently) always a ZoneAlarm message saying that "explorer.exe is trying to access the internet" Although I have clicked the box for my (Deny) response to be remembered, the message has appeared at each startup for the last month or so, and I'm tired of that.Likewise, ZoneAlarm asks for permission to allow Firefox to access the internet shows up each time I start that even though I've told ZA to remember it.

Pro Stops Responding For 5 Mins

Mar 5, 2005

Upgraded my XP home PC (Athlon 64 3500) to XP Pro and added office 2003 pro. I now have a very irritating fault that I cannot find any info on. Basically on accessing the web using IE6 for the first time after a re boot the machine locks totally for approx 5 mins. During this time the Start button and Task manager dont respond. The only thing that seems to be still working is right clicking on the desktop brings up the properties screen. The computer does store the keypresses as 5 mins later several windows will pop up as per keys pressed and the machine will stay free of the problem until next re boot.

Mouse Hangs, Stops Responding

Jan 30, 2005

No one, even Compaq, can figure this problem out. Most times this happens when I am opening IEXPLORER or sometimes it just seems to happen after it's open. I will attempt to open IEXPLORER and my mouse will hang (stop responding) for about a second, then jump back into action. Say like opening up the web browser, and moving your mouse around in a circle, it stops even though you are still moving it. It also does this just when NOTHING is open on the desktop. Just stops for about a second, then springs back.

Computer Stops Responding On Startup

Sep 19, 2010

I was playing a game as I normal and the pc hanged momentarily (made a buzzing noise and the screen froze) then the pc restarted itself.As it restarted, it rebooted 2 times after seeing the bluescreem. NOW, when I turn the pc on, it comes to the advanced windows startup menu (safemode, previous setting etc), I press enter on any of the options and the pc just hangs there. It just freezes from the moment I press enter, the keyboard stops working aswell. I checked the hardware when it happens, the fans are still working. The only thing is, the red light in the front stops blinking. But overall, it seems like the system just turned itself off internally or something.

Inordinately Long Boot Time - Stops Responding

Apr 17, 2007

My friends year old HP Pavilion laptop is taking an extremely long time to finish booting. It seems to boot fine until you select a user account and log on. The desktop and start-up apps seem to load in a timely fashion as well. However, if you try to launch any app (taskmgr, IE, Windows explorer, etc.) during the first 5-10 mins of operation, the entire computer stops responding for 5 min or so. The app will eventualy start, yet any other input will cause the computer to stop responding again. After 10 mins or so, everything starts to function normally.

When I have managed to get taskmgr open, the only activity seem to come from svchost, csrss and occasionally some of the Symantec and Spysweeper processes. She has run Norton Anti-virus and Spysweeper scans and found nothing. I have also scanned it with Trend Micros house call. Nothing looks amiss in the event viewer either. A couple months back her registry became corrupt and the computer would not boot period. I managed to manually restore the registry hives using the recovery console, and the computer had functioned perfectly until 2 weeks ago. Here is the hijachthis log file:

Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1
Scan saved at 6:27:03 PM, on 4/10/2007

Zone Alarm Pro TRUE VECTOR Stops IE Explorer

Aug 7, 2005

In january of this year, I bought zone labs, zone alarm pro, after using free zone alarm for over 1 year. It ran flawlessly until the 1st of August,2005.After the latest update,(from zone labs) I received an error message (every time I logged on to the internet)that IE 6.0 was encountering errors and would have to close.Then the program would not close due to its inability to respond. I had to use task manager to close it, and that did not always work. The next error message came on right after that and stated that True vector had shut down; as soon as that message displayed another came up asking if I would like to restart True Vector. I clicked 'yes' on this and thereafter my ISP's connection (earthlink) completly froze up. Task manager again used to log off of earthlink. I googled True vector, and found that it was something included in zone alarm pro. They said the problem had been fixed, but I do not think so.After using 'add remove programs' to rid myself of zone alarm pro,and editing my registry to the best of my ability, everything returned to normal: ISP loaded normally and ran correctly. Zone labs will not deal with my problem, (would not even allow me to contact them unless I used their expensive phone support).So, as of now, my system is up and running wonderfully, without zone alarm pro; but I do not feel that winxp, service pak 2's firewall is adequate. What to do?

EXPLORER.EXE Not Responding

Jul 13, 2005

A few weeks ago it started and got worse now that Windows shows the message "EXPLORER.EXE is not responding" during logoff/shutdown after it has been up for a couple of hours. After 2 or 3 minutes showing this message (I resist to abort the program), heavy hard drive activity and a low CPU load of approx. 5-10%, mainly kernel time, it continues and shuts down fine. Task manager shows that nothing much is happening during this 2-3 minutes except for page faults of explorer.exe thus I
assume it must be some paging performance problem. Generally, after these 2-3 minutes explorer.exe has accumulated another 20000 page faults before the system continues which seems a little bit much for a 25MB process. Sometimes, the heavy swapping for 2-3 minutes also happens while the system is running.The computer got a fresh XP Prof. SP2 setup from CD about two months ago. 512 MB main memory from which there is according to task manager 1/3 still available and the total memory usage is still far from that, too.
