My machine is a Dell Inspiron NetBook, Windows Explorer hangs (not a crash)
When I first start Control Panel, the Control Panel windows says "not responding", I then get the Windows dialog asking to restart the app etc. After the Explorer restart I can access the Control Panel functions without a problem (thankfully). This problem is 100% repeatable after logging in.
The Windos Event Log details are as follows:
The program Explorer.EXE version 6.1.7600.16404 stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Action Center control panel.
Process ID: ae0
Start Time: 01ca99bb77a8fa90
Termination Time: 0
Application Path: C:\Windows\Explorer.EXE
Report Id: 619fe1b6-05dc-11df-b48f-0024e8f2bcb4
I tried a system restore using the original as purchased Winows Bqackup image but this did not fix the problem
Thanks in advance
