Last time I looked, that was a Microsoft product. Do a search on their site for that error message; it has nothing to do with Roxio.

 

I know you posted in the general chat area but unless someone who has the same computer ,software and error message, and works for Microsoft, you'll get an answer quicker by a little self help.

I assume that you've done all the normal things like rebooting, checking for viruses, malware and the like.

 

Have you installed anything recently that is a Windows helper type program? Did you roll back the computer to an earlier time (Windows Restore)? Did you use Windows add or remove programs to remove some of the Windows utility. Did you change your start up menu?

 

Can you restore from back up or do a Windows REPAIR from your Windows disc. I assume you have one and that you have a valid license for your Windows operating system. Did you ignore the messages to register your OS?

 

I'm going to stop there since there are dozens of questions I could have asked about what you tried. Why don't you respond with the above answers and add anything else that you did that I didn't cover.

 

Did you try live chat (or e-mail) support with Microsoft? Typically they respond overnight to e-mail questions. I didn't know if that was the chat you mentioned. Did you do what they said?

 

What OS? I'm assuming you really meant Windows Explorer (to view folders) and NOT Windows Internet Explorer.

 

PS That cartoon never works but does make your computer mad so it really does stop working.

When I google this problem there are many suggestions. One of which is a system restore. Do a google and try some of the suggestions.

HP uses a hidden partition for their restore, which caused serious problems with Roxio ECD/DVDC 6 (not the question here, but how I found out about it is from reading posts on V.6).

 

I don't know if asking HP for a restore disc in CD or DVD form would get anywhere, but it is something that occurs to me. Also, HP repair might have some ideas, altho that might come along with their keeping your computer for an unspecified length of time :(

 

My WinXP came with a boot CD, which I ended up needing after one time I accidently put it on standby instead of turning it off. The source of the computer is one of those smallish computer stores that appear to do their own altho I happened to notice that several of them had gone together and were getting them from some third party .. :huh:

Here's my two cents. I have had problems recently with Windows Explorer and Internet Explorer.

When using Windows Explorer to manage Roxio files (photos, video clips, etc.) I get the message that Windows Explorer must close. I have never seen this before, except now with Roxio folders. Other folders and files are okay. Go figure.

Regarding Internet Explorer; recently I was not able to log into this forum. It would hang part way with the message "not responding". I have been using IE6 until yesterday, then upgraded to IE7 (so I'm a little slow when it comes to change). Problem gone. And curiously, Windows Explorer is not crashing on Roxio files now.

I'm happy.

Repeating for the record . . . IE7 kills EMC 7. WMP 11 does the same.

Of course you have IE 7. You have Vista. After reading all of your posts, for a long time now, I would have to think that your biggest problem is you're tinkering with things that you shouldn't be tinkering with, because you have no clue what you are doing. :blink:

Does anyone have MSN Explorer? The boards don't work with it at all, won't even open. The minute it starts, I get the Kiss of Death window asking if I want to report it or not report. I wish there was an option for just scream.

Try one of Invision's other boards, Patty, and see if they will let you use MSN Explorer. I think Paul had a list of some other Invision boards.

 

If they will let you use it, then it can be done and they should be persuaded to do it on this board.

Brendon

I was unable to edit a post via the Quick Edit function earlier. Had to close and do it via the Full Edit option. Wasted about 5 minutes fiddling with it. :(

I did the link test and they all work with all my browsers, it is only this forum that crashes.

A little more information would help......

 

Just what are you trying to do when you get the 'Windows Explorer has stopped working......' message?

 

Also, you might try the HP website Support to see if they can help.

I have usually a web page opened..i.e Roxio Comm Support, checking e-mail or viewing any web site..

and then have my external drive on and saving pics or docs on it...

then all of a sudden..message appears "Windows explorer has stopped working" comes up

and then the external drive is not recognised...

I have to switch it off and on again...

but Internet Explorer does not go off...web pages are still on..

I have been on HP support and searched on troubleshooting..etc

and it keeps happening again after a while..

:(
