Can't browse files from Settings or 3D Builder, application crashes

Question: Can't browse files from Settings or 3D Builder, application crashes

I'd just upgraded to windows 10 yesterday, and I've been having issues with browsing files. Today, I was trying to change my background from settings, and as soon as the file browser opened up, it closed straight away. Settings also stopped working. It was frozen, and I had to close it using ctrl+alt+delete. Pretty much the same thing happened with 3D builder, however the application crashed after the file browser closed. Please help me out, I've done sfc/scannow and tried restarting windows explorer but nothing has even remotely helped. I can still browse files from things such as google chrome and paint.

Preferred Solution: Can't browse files from Settings or 3D Builder, application crashes

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Can't browse files from Settings or 3D Builder, application crashes

I've just managed to find out that the thing that stops working is called File Picker UI Host.

Hello, I wanted to see what are the Lenovo settings that we can alter by going to the Lenovo icon on the Metro view of my Lenovo Thinkpad S1 Yoga, but every time I try to go there (I've rebooted 3 times already) I get the message to either share usage statistics or not, and none of the buttons are clickable (I've tried the mouse, touchscreen, tabulation)... the Lenovo screen just closes after a few seconds and the application exits, so I cannot use those settings. I downloaded a package I saw here for 'SettingsDependency', but that didn't make any difference either. Any idea, what the problem could be? or maybe how could I disable that initial question about the usage statistics to see if I could get to the app and start using it? Thank you.  

Answer:Lenovo Settings unusable on Metro view, application crashes

And I was thinking, could I manually create an entry in my registry to say that I've already selected to either allow or disallow my usage statistics to be sent to Lenovo? Any idea of the parameter and value that I should create in the registry? This is what I currently see...

Hi there,

Found a great post to a program that will allow me to print multiple files and browse for them, the only thing its missing is the ability to choose a printer as a last step. (instead of it just using the default windows printer)

I am actually printing to a fax driver and this final option would work perfectly!

I'm attempting to migrate an XP SP2 installation onto another XP SP2 computer using the Files & Settings Transfer Wizard -- the process consistently crashes in the process of writing the files to the target computer, requiring a forced reboot.

Both computers are running all update patches.

The data collection on the source computer completes without problems.

Perhaps related to this problem is that the Outlook Express mail store on the source computer seems to be corrupted. Outlook Express' Print command is grayed out, and when I attempted to import the mail into Eudora, the Eudora import wizard crashed itself and Eudora.

Is there a log of the Files/Settings transfer process which would show which file crashed it? Is there a way to rebuild the Outlook Express database to repair the printing and export problems?

Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance!

So, I'm sure this is a familiar story, but my new build randomly freezes while gaming. It either freezes for a few seconds and then resets automatically, or just completely freezes and nothing will work but a hard reset. I've updated all the drivers and done all the random Windows updates, I've run a memory diagnostic through Windows and checked the memory in the BIOS to make sure they are running equally well. I've downloaded Gigabyte's temp/voltage/whathaveyou monitoring software, but it doesn't seem to save the data before a crash, so I can't see if it can tell me what's going wrong. I've even run a full virus scan in case it somehow got infected in it's first days of life.

All other games I've tried can and have crashed at any point.

Answer:New Builder Crashes While Gaming

Please provide these 2 things:
1)  Please provide this information (even though you're not experiencing BSOD's) so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum):
2)  Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on Administrative Events
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).
FYI - If we're looking for Event ID 41 errors (unexplained shutdowns), there's more info on that here:

Hi all. I would like to ask for some help on finding a WYSIWYG website editing application that also allows full access to edit the code.
Ever since 2011 I've been using Weebly to create websites and I love how that Weebly allows me to create beautiful looking websites, with the ability to edit the HTML, CSS throughout.
I'm looking for an easy to use WYSIWYG application that doesn't require coding skill, but doesn't stop stop you from being able to edit the full HTML/CSS freely as I want to escape the limitations Weebly has (brief explanation at the end)
I first came across 90 Second Website Builder, and although it allows editing of the HTML code, it doesn't allow you to freely, like as in anywhere in the page. I then came across their mac varient Drag and Drop Site Builder, but again same thing. I then came across Freeway Pro, absolutely brilliant application, exactly what I want except that it still doesn't allow you to edit the HTML/CSS freely. I've tried multiple Mac applications but none seem to have the simplicity as Freeway Pro and I just kept going back to Freeway. I just wish Freeway allowed me to fully edit the HTML. I just can't stand the thought of not having any access to the full html within the application whatsoever.
I'm not a coder, have no clue how to code, otherwise I certainly wouldn't be bothering with applications like this. But it's still easier at times to achieve something by editing a single line of code, such as making a background image be full s... Read more

I was going to ask EA this, but their support contact form doesn't seem to work.

I used to play the Sims 2 on my pc. The pc was slightly underqualified, but besides slow gameplay it seemed to work fine. I had all the expansions save for University installed.

All of a sudden when I was playing it seemed to freeze,and a popup saying 'This application has crashed, application will not terminate' popped up. This happened around the time that I upgraded my pc with additional RAM and when I installed Free Time. I didn't know if it was the problem of either those things.

I still kept playing, but after a while I could only play for about 5 minutes before it popped up again. Then, I decided to play with an older lot that I created before the installation of Freetime. Strangely, I was able to play in that lot for hours and I never got that popup. The popup only came up during the actual game play, so not during CAS, or building etc.

I recently bought a new laptop. It's a special gaming laptop and it has really good specs, so I decided to buy it, mainly because I play the SIms 2 a lot. (See DXDiag). I installed all the expansion (including university), so now I have all the expansions+stuff packs on this laptop. I also copied all the custom content from my computer to my laptop. The installation went fine, and in the beginning everything seemed to run smoothly.

That was mostly due to the fact that I was building a lot more and creating families than acutal... Read more

Hi everyone.

I just received my new desktop computer. I decided that I wanted to install Windows 7 myself, so I opted for a formatted HD.

I managed to install Windows 7 and connect to the internet...sort of.

I can connect google and MSN, and perform google searches. But whenever I go to a different website, any website, the computer stalls when loading the webpage and eventually crashes my internet connection and I have to reset the router.

This also occurs when I go to windows updates. Windows updates will begin to download, but will be suck at 0% and stay there until my internet crashes.

I have some updated drivers, including graphics. I have other computers on the very same connection that connect to the internet fine, and do not crash when browsing. This happens solely on my new desktop. This happened both on IE and Firefox.

I pinged on the computer and it was 100% no loss. When I pinged any other website, I got a 0%, no packets.

But when I ping on my latop or any other computer, I get 100% all the time. Right now, I'm posting on this forum with my laptop. It would be impossible to do so on my new desktop.

Whats going on? Can anyone help? Thanks.

One of our users uploads documents to a clients site. For some reason when she clicks on the "Browse" button to find the file, it crashes IE6. I did some troubleshooting and found out it's when she clicks on "Browse" in any program. Add/Remove programs, crashes, IE6 crashes, etc. There is not error message it just closes.

We think that the default location that the browse button would take her too is gone. Signed in as a local administrator and it worked just fine. Just seems to be something on her profile.

Have you checked the Event Viewer

Right-click My Computer and click on Properties.
Click the Advanced tab and in the 'Startup and Recovery' section click Settings.
In the 'System Failure' section check these boxes:
'Write an event to the system log'.
'Send an Administrative alert'.
Uncheck the 'Automatically restart' box.

Go to Start => Run and type in "eventvwr.msc" {without the quotes}

Look under Applications and System for any Errors (with the red cross icon) at about the time of the failure. Double-click on these for more information and a hyperlink (in blue) to a possible solution from Microsoft's database. These error messages often don't help much, but can sometimes give us a clue. The more essential information is the EventID, the faulting module, file or process, the Error Code from the blue screen. If you're still not sure, click the double-page notepad-type icon which copies the error information to the clipboard. Paste into Notepad and/or into your next post. If there are many Errors, collect them into one Notepad .txt file and attach it to your next post.

(Edit: I originally thought this was just Word because that's what I use most often, but I seem to have the problem in other Office apps too, like Excel & PowerPoint)

I have a terribly irritating problem I'm trying to correct. Word crashes the minute I try to browse to a new file location. I can drag-n-drop files into Word to open them, or double click on them. I can even save the files into their current location. But the minute I try to browse to a new location on save or open, it crashes. The same happens in Outlook with attachments (I assume because its using Word to edit new msgs)

Occasionally, when this happens too many times, Word will start crashing the minute I try and open it. Dumping the registry key helps with this, but then when I try to go and browse it starts all over again.

I've tried detect & repair, renaming, dumping the registry key and un/reinstall.

I've had this problem for several months now and cannot shake it. It started on my old computer. I reformatted my apps partition and reinstalled all programs and still had the problem. I recently got a new computer. The fresh install of Office had no issues, but somewhere in the reintroduction of all my files it started up again.

I DO copy over back-ups of my e-mail, favorites, application data, etc. so I assume it has something to do with that... The only other connection is a 40 gig drive that's been present in the system(s) on all occasions.

Hi guys,
I just joined the forums today.
My issue has to do with basically every internet browser I have and Nvidia Geforce Experience.  Whenever I open chrome and opera, both of them crash instantly.  Additionally, whenever I open firefox and edge and go to certain pages such as or, the websites crash.  On IE, it does basically the same thing; the only difference is that I go to the webpage it generally crashes on and it says IE stopped responding, but IE is still loading the webpages and I can still add a new tab!  Also, after getting an alert yesterday from Geforce Experience that a new video card driver was available, I clicked on the alert, only to have a window pop up saying that it crashed.  I tried to open Geforce Experience again.  Crashed again.
After trying to use a system restore point from October 18, 2016 (before I had this issue) I still had this problem.  A Microsoft support rep said that it is most likely a virus.  I did have trend micro officescan installed at the time, however, but i'm guessing some viruses can get past your security.
The only change I can remember is installing MSI Afterburner.  I may have downloaded a thing or two, but only used trusted sites to download from (Cnet, Opera, sourceforge).

I have Windows 8 pro with media center and everytime I insert a DVD, I want to play it with Windows Media Player, NOT Media Center. But it doesn't even provide me with the option to open it with media player. Which is getting very annoying because I can not stand Media Center anymore. Unlike in the Windows 7 where in autorun it used to provide the browse option to choose any other source to open a file with. Here it doesn't do so. I have tried a few options but they were of no help. 1. I tried to change AutoPlay settings by navigating to Control Panel --> Programs --> Default Programs --> Change AutoPlay Settings. But it doesn't show windows media player as an option to play the video file from a DVD. HOWEVER it is available for any Audio file from a DVD source. 2. I tried to disable Media Center Feature from Programs and Features. But no luck. Both options have failed. I don't know what to do. I do not want to use Media Center to play video from my DVD. Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:How to browse autoplay/autorun settings in Windows 8?

Hello 8igth, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro don't come with DVD movie playback capability. You'll need to have Windows Media Center or a 3rd party program or app (from Store) installed to do so now instead. That's why it will not work with Windows Media Player anymore.

I am on a Vista computer that will not boot up all the way. I guess.
I get to the desktop, though it's blank. There ARE programs in the system tray, I can use programs.
I can even get on the 'net. I use the search box to start what programs I remember. Like notepad, chrome, etc.
But when I explore the drive, there's nothing there to explore. I have two files there (one of which I created tonight). BOOTSECT.BAK and (the one I created tonight) bcd_backup

When I do an AVG scan, it finds nothing, but I see it going through all the files on the disk, so I know they are still "there"

I'm using the computer now, to write this (using chrome).

I've tried cmd and from a command window, went to c:\ dir and there was the same two files there. However, I can change directories to other directories I know are there. However, dir shows me nothing. I did however get a dir listing in \windows. Shows me 17 files and 5 directories.

In computer management, Storage > Disk Management, I have the C: listed, status is Heathy (system, boot, page file, active, crash dump, primary partition)

I've put in the Vista Home Premium install disk and rebooted, went to the repair option, but says there's nothing to repair.

I'm really at a loss here, everything seems to be pointing to the fact that the OS is healthy, when obviously it is not.

hi i want to know if it is possible to use my s4 (Samsung GT-9505) as a Bluetooth device and browse or explore it using Bluetooth i have a windows 8.1 HP laptop with Realtor Bluetooth adapter build in

Answer:Browse Files on A bluetooth Device

It all depends on what specifically you are trying to do. You may want to check the Samsung forums in regard to that. Pretty much now days, people with Samsung devices are using them to control their Samsung Smart TV's.

I have a wireless network with 2 computers, one 'CA' with XP Home, and 'CB' with XP professional. Both have SP2, and ZoneAlarm.

From CB, I can find both computers in the workgroup 'HOME', and I can start to browse CA. I can go one level down, where I can see 'Shared Documents' and one more shared directory plus some printers on the other computer.
But when I try to dive into the 'Shared Documents' I get the error message (after a long time (=1-2 minutes)):
\\CA\Shared Documents is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. .. The specified network name is no longer available.
I also try to open a small picture file (say 30k), but is has never succeeded.
I have logged in as user ABC (administrator) on CB, and the same user is also defined on CA.
It's similar results when I try from CA to CB as well. (On CA I am running user DEF, which is not defined on CB.)

I can access Internet from both computers via the common wireless router, with good speed. I can also ping both computers, no delays there.

I am at a loss here, I don't know what to look for. I have googled for a few hours, without finding anything that helped.
Can anyone give me hint, what to look for?
Log files? (Nothing shows in the event log)
Protocol bindings?

Occasionally, when I try to attach a file in gmail, I browse but cannot find the file. I open the file through MS word or what not, and trace where it is saved to, but when I try to repeat that through gmail browse the file does not show up. It has dissapeared even though I can find it by going through the program or folder directly on the computer. I just can't find it to attach it.

I have not had problems with the files disappearing permenantly or failing to attach if I find they show up in the folder when I go to browse.

This is driving me absolutely bonkers! Last time i saved a copy of the file to the desktop directly and attached from there, but I don't want to be dealing with this. I have only had this problem with VISTA, and only a few times in the several weeks since I have had the new laptop. I run X64, and it is the standard version that came with my HP.

I have searched online and have not run across my problem, but if someone has asked it please disregard and provide a link.

Thank you!

Answer:Files can't be found when I browse to attach them, even though they are still there

Have you found a solution? I'm experiencing the same thing right now.

After visiting a web page I tried to download a 29MB file and quickly noticed that the download was stopping at around 10% of the download. Also some web sites became impossible to see. "My other computers on the same ADSL router are functioning OK browsing and downloading". That was yesterday. Today I could not open any webpages. I think there is something on my computer that is causing this. I tried SpyBot with the latest definitions and Norton Antivirus. Both gave me the all clear. I forgot to mention that a DOS screen now appears on my desktop for 2 minutes after I boot, it comes up as netsh. I also used RegisteryMechanic to fix registery errors but I still have a problem. I checked my TCP/IP details they are correct, but I cannot ping my router.

When I'm in Paint shop pro (psp), after a few image changes or viewing files the program won't let me save or save as. No error message is given, I just can't save anything. If I then go into Paint program or Publisher, I can save or save as there, and then when I go back to psp I can then save or save as there.
When this problem started I also noticed that the second time I am in IE5.5 and am uploading images, I won't be able to "browse" my hard drive. No error message is given. If I clear the files form IE and close and reopen IE, I will usually be able to upload files again. HELP... this is VERY annoying. I've tried to repair IE but the problem is still there. I think theyre related but can't figure out how. I am not very good with computers but somehow manage ( with the help of boards like this) to fix things back to normal. A few times in the past Ive picked up trojans( i think) that slowed down IE. I dont know if this could be something like that or if I screwed something up by deleting unused program files or something. I would really be appreciative of any suggestions to bring my computer back to normal!!!

Thanks ,

I'm running XP Premium Home x64 on a Dell XPS M1530.
Don't know what all specs y'all might need but I have 4.0 GB of Ram, and am running an Intel Core Duo CPU T8100 @2.10 GHZ processor.
Here's what's going on. When I try to browse for a file in any program on Vista, that program crashes. A few examples:

In iTunes, when I try to go to File > Add folder to library, iTunes crashes and I get this message "iTunes has stopped working, windows is searching for a solution" after a few seconds "iTunes has stopped working, A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

In uTorrent, if I right click on a torrent and click "open containing folder" it will open that containing folder but then immediately freeze and display the same error message above, only with "Windows Explorer has stopped working" instead of "itunes has stopped working".

In imgburn, when I try to add an iso file, I get the following error message "Access violation at address 6F164549 in module 'ieframe.dll'. Write of address 75D8F8BC."

If I just click on My Computer, I can navigate through all files and folders with no problem, it's only when I try to navigate through other programs that these problems occur.

I get the standard "windows explorer encountered a problem and needs to shut down; sorry for the inconvenience" message.

Hi There,

My sister has a computer running windows vista and it has a strange problem with IE8.

I can launch IE and browse the web, but whenever I try and go to the control panel, recycle bin, or my documents it crashes and says there is a problem with IE. I am able to launch Mozilla, use file -> open and then find and open the files I want. So the files are still there, but the operating system won't let me click on the start button and then my documents and get the file. It says IE is having a problem.

I tried downloading and reinstalling IE8, but that did not fix the problem. Any suggestions?

If you are seeing a message that says "No files match your search" it's because the program you are using doesn't know how to open any of the files in that folder...

Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi... you're my last hope.

My troubles started when all programs on my laptop froze. I rebooted. After that I can't access my files anymore. Browsers and some other apps won't start, while others work normally. If I try to start, for example, IE - I can see it among the running processes but something is blocking it from starting propperly. If I try to browse files through a program that starts, the program freezes and I can't kill it.

Virus right? That's what I thought too.

I'm writing this call for help from the fail-safe mode, where I thankfully have none of the above mentioned problems.
Tried system restore to several different dates, well before the problems began. When that didn't work I ran HijackThis and went through the log trying to find something... but I can't spot anything that shouldn't be there.

I must be blind. If someone else could have a look at this maybe they'll be able to see something my tired eyes have missed. I'm at my wit's end here.

There are two types of directories

Hello, I have Macrium Free, imaged my entire computer, made the boot CD for the Windows PE....I boot up, do exactly what the sticky thread says . . . . the image is on a brand new Western Digital 1TB external HDD, when I try to image the internal HDD (seagate drive) Macrium simply puts the contents of the WD drive on the Seagate internal HDD, sort of like a simple copy/paste. Of course when I restart it doesn't load Windows because what is on the internal HDD is simply a few folders. I figured oh well do a fresh Windows 7 Ultimate install and grab the files after I mount the Macrium image, but when I do it just takes in a circle, I mount, open the image, which has a folder, with an image....this happens until there is nowhere else to click, but there are never any files to browse, the image files are large, I made 2, one on 2-20-15 (87GB) and one on 2-23-15(174GB)

Any ideas?
Thanks you

Answer:Macrium Image file 87 GB, can't browse files

Did you image both partitions, System Reserved and the "C" drive on the hard drive when you made the backup? If you only imaged the "C" drive that is incorrect and probably why its not working.

See my Win 7 drive, below for an example and also the Macrium screenshot of my Win 7 drive and both partitions selected for imaging.

When creating a new desktop shortcut my window Browse for Files or Folders only displys my desktop and user account sub folder. How can I restore all my objects to this window such as MyPC and disk drives. This works OK with Win 7 but not win 10.

Answer:Missing objects in Browse for files or folders

Click on Cortana, and type, This PC

This PC is what they call it now instead of "My Computer" click on that, and see if all objects appear.

Probably whats happening right now, is you are seeing the new "Quick Access", which has frequently opened files and folders.

Plz help, I usually fix my own stuff but here i can't and I found no info on the web.

Thx, max

Answer:application crashes

Does it crash while using other apps? Since it is crashing while you are in photoshop or playing a game, it makes me think it is the video card. Try installing the latest drivers for your video card. If that doesn't work, it just may be a faulty card.

Thanks I believe you can go next or previous photo using the photos app. If you hover your mouse around the right middle section, you should see an arrow for going to the next photo.
Or you can use the keyboard right and left keys
And since you said it's touch, you should be able to swipe left and right

I've been having this issue for the longest now. im dealing with Optimum 200 plan and the wifi is blazing fast but here's my issue, whenever i download a big file really fast sometimes like a 2gb file downloading at 8Mb/s or a 6gb file at 12Mb/s almost no one in the house can use the internet while that download is happening. on occasion if someone is already using the internet or playing a online game BEFORE the download starts they are unaffected. in chrome the error is

Answer:No one can browse the internet if i download big files fast. (optimum)

Hi there

Problem is probably throughput on router - cheap consumer routers and wifi cards probably are only half duplex anyway so the chances are with that type of file download at that bit rate the whole system will grind to a halt.

Can you for example download TWO files concurrently at 8Mb/s -- (assuming nobody else is on the system).

I don't think it's your ISP --especially if you have direct fibre cable into the house.

My own view of cases where you have a few concurrent users messing around with large up / downloads / shared files etc etc is to buy a commercial grade router that can handle the throughput -- ones dished out by the cable companies are usually really "el cheapo" models which work for the average person but not fit for purpose if you are doing loads of large up / downloads.

What you need also in this situation is some sort of sensible load balancing - a feature not usually available on Home type routers.

Remember also wifi has a MAX theoretical rate of 1300 Mb/s (bits /sec to avoid confusion) -- that's over 5GHZ or about 400Mb/s over 2.4 GHz.

Now as wifi is HALF duplex you'd be lucky to get 600 Mb/s at the best or less than 200 Mb/s on 2.4 GHZ. In practice you will get very much less than those speeds with typical wifi routers and cards so divide that over 4 or 5 users !!! - End of !!!.

I don't know how this happened, but it's terribly annoying. Everytime I open an application where I have to browse for a file to upload, it opens for 2 seconds and then closes the program completely. For instance, I tried to browse a file in my videos to upload a onto windows movie maker, and it completely closed windows movie maker and the my videos folder. I ran AVG Anti Virus, Malwarebytes, and nothing. I also tried to do a system restore, but I can't because I can't go back on the calendar to find a later date that my computer was restored. I'm so frustrated and I'm ready to throw my laptop out of the window. I think this started when I tried to download a dvd to avi converter called vidomi. Everything was fine until I downloaded and ran this. I deleted vidomi from my computer though.

Please help me!

Answer:Unable to browse files to upload because it closes program

Hello -

I'm uncertain that any malware removal will address the issues you're describing. It may well be that justpassingby's recommendation of reinstall is still the path you'll end upon; however, I do see signs of an infection which warrants investigating.

I need a bit more information, please.

Download RSIT by random/random and save it to your desktop.
Double click RSIT.exe to start the tool and click Continue at the disclaimer.
When the scan completes it will open a log named log.txt maximized, and a log named info.txt minimized.
Copy (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of log.txt here.
Please attach info.txt to your post.
To attach a file to a new post, simplyClick the[Manage Attachments] button under Additional Options > Attach Files on the post composition page, and

Hi. So, recently I was having problems with browsing through folders in My Computer, as well as browsing to attach files in programs such as Skype or different email clients. Whatever program I was in would freeze, and crash. Windows Explorer would do the same. However, I posted a HijackThis log in the proper forum, and did a whole bunch of scans and updates, and my system turned up clean for any viruses or malware. I updated my Vista to the Service Pack 2, and that seemed to fix my attaching files in programs problem, but I still am unable to browse my files by going to Start > My Computer. I was wondering what might have caused this problem, and what I might be able to do to fix it. Here is a link to my previous thread where I was directed to come here: anyone could help, you would be awesome. This has been happening for at least two months, and I don't really recall if I made any major changes that might have caused this, but I doubt it. If I need to clarify anything, just tell me. Thanks!

Answer:Vista stops working when I try to browse files in My Computer

I had this exact same problem with my fathers computer. It took a bit of research but i have a solution you could try that should work.

Go to Control Panel> System> Advanced System Settings>Performance>Settings>Data Execution Prevention>Check off "Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and services only">Apply>Okay>Exit

That fixed my problem post back and tell me if it worked.

Does anyone have some code (or know how I can set it up) to create a "Browse" button to import csv files into an Access 03 DB?

More or less, I just want to be able to click a "Browse" button (on a Form) to search for the file and import it (the data) into a temp table where I will then run some queries, etc. to handle the data once it is in my DB.

If you have some VB code that I can copy, edit and paste that would be great!

So, the left-hand bar is supposed to represent the desktop, and the contents on it, like in XP. I'd like to make it look more normal.

1. I want to remove: libraries, favorites, homegroup, and network. When you remove them, they just come back. Even if they aren't on the desktop. What gives?

2. I want to add My Documents above My Computer. And have My Computer defaulted to being opened (so I can see my drives.)

3. I would like the Recycling Bin to appear.

4. I would like "Desktop" to be atop the list, as that is how it makes the most sense to me.

Is there a way to re-enact this through Libraries? Or to actually make it happen? Or a different program? What's the deal though, the Windows 7 look is so... illogical and unorganized and cluttered.

Answer:Left-hand bar in Explorer or Browse Files boxes to look like XP.

Folder Options > General tab: Navigation Pane > Check "Show all folders"
Then collapse the parts you do not want to see and close the window.

Answer:Intermittent Application Crashes

The c0000374 error code indicates memory corruption -- the application is trying to use or access memory it doesn't or should have access to.
In short, the driver is damaged or corrupt, or is not the correct one for your system. Make sure you have the latest, and correct version installed..

Greetings. New user here looking for some assistance if possible.

IE 7, Firefox, Vanguard (MMO game) are all crashing on me, and have been since I installed them.

I've gotten the correct drivers from Intel for the board, I've run with and without sound. I've tried all the listed Win7 video drivers from nVidia.

IE 7 shows a Flash error in the event log when it crashes.

Firefox does not show anything in the event log.

Vanguard is reporting to the event log, but the error makes no sense (says that an XML file is faulty).

Even Explorer has crashed:
Faulting application name: Explorer.EXE, version: 6.1.7600.16404, time stamp: 0x4a765771

When i attempt to send a win xp fax in ms word or corel wp, i select the printer labeled "fax" & follow the prompts until i come to the "preview" button. When i press "preview," the word processing application just hangs & i get an error msg that the it has to close.

Several days ago, when i attempted to fax a ms word document, pressing "preview" gave me a distorted, garbled, image. I figured that an image freeware application i recently upgraded & have been using for years might be the problem. It was called "irfanview" & i've been using it for years & am very satisfied with it. However, after the upgrade it "took over" all my image displays. This was not really a problem but it even conveted my "avi" files to an irfanview type & my windows media player would not play them. I was still not too concerned figuring i can always change the connection, but when i encountered the fax prob the other day i thought it might be caused by irfanview. I removed irfaview using add-remove etc & now the prob has morphed to the "preview freeze" prob mentioned above.

What could be causing this?

Hey it's me again. Thank you for the help before, that solved my BSOD problem for quite a while. Now however I'm having a new problem, and I'm not really sure what is the cause of it or how to go about even looking up a fix for it. For the past few weeks now I've been having programs randomly crash on me. Like I'll be playing a game and in the background Windows Explorer, Microsoft Security Essentials, Steam, Ventrilo, Skype, etc. will just randomly crash on me. It's become quite annoying so I figured it was time to ask. I've only ever had one BSOD during all this and it was a system_service_exception. Any idea what could be causing this to happen and what I could do to fix it?

Hi Guys,

Its been few months since i bought this computer. The specs are as follows

E7200 Dual Core Intel CPU
P5KPL-CM mobo
2 GB DDR2 800 Transcend RAM - 1 stick
22" Viewsonic VA2226w monitor

Since the time i bought it, its been crashing with variety of different BSOD messages both in Vista and XP, firefox crashes too, system turns VERY laggy all of a sudden. I installed Linux and that crashed too. Definitely there is some issue with the hardware. Now before i go ahead and buy something i wanted to know whats going on so that i can buy / replace the right part

The tests that i ran were:

1) ran memtest for like 20 times and RAM came up with no error
2) Replaced RAM Slots
3) ran HDD tests and didn't find any error
4) Just to be sure that a virus is not causing it, reformatted the HD and reinstalled windows
If you check the specs, my Mobo is a pretty low end model with an inbuilt graphics card. However my monitor is 22" LCD. Do you think buying a graphics card will solve it? or is it the motherboard creating the problem?

Please suggest me any test(s) that i need to run

Thanks a lot in advance,

i'm just a newbie and i could really use some help.

my dsl and wifi were working perfectly well until the system suddenly broke down on me 2 days ago.

i use a tenda 5M wireless broadband router model w541r, connected to a dsl service provider (pldt) and work on 2 laptops an old twinhead e12kt running windows XP, and a newer toshiba satellite m305d-s430 running windows vista.

basic problem now is that i can connect but am unable to browse (unable to resolve host) using my wifi router but am able to connect and browse with my laptop connected directly to the dsl modem.

the router is working prefectly fine however otherwise (i can connect using the router ip address and adjust router settings). my router has always been set to auto-detect settings and had been without any problems previously. i have tried releasing, renewing, and rebooting, and connecting and disconnecting my router and dsl.

after browsing some forums, i've tried fiddling with my ipconfig

Hi, I'm having a problem I've had some time ago but I forgot how to fix.

The symptoms are:

-Firefox is slow to start and does not connect to any site
-IE works, I can browse, but whenever I try to download anything I get

"Internet explorer cannot download X from Y.

Internet Explorer was unable to open this Internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later."

-The "Temporary Internet Files" folder is stuck as "read-only" and whenever I remove the tick for read only it resets itself immediately after clicking OK.

-The Folder Option setting is "show hidden files and folders" but I didn't see the Temporary Internet Files folder in the Local Settings folder until I removed the "Hidden" parameter for the Local Settings folder.

So basically I can browse but not download files in IE, Firefox doesn't work, reinstalling it doesn't work either. I had this problem months ago but I don't know how I fixed it.

It likely had something to do with editing the registry or deleting some virus-created files, I'm not sure.

I'd really like to have something I could use to force the Temporary Internet Files folder to stay off read-only, I think that was and is the cause of the problem.

Hello!Firstly I would like to thank you very much for taking the time to help me.Here is my problem: A few days ago, I ran a Windows Live Messenger conversation with three people while we fooled around speaking nonsense to each other through microphone. (For information, I use a Logitech for Notebook Deluxe microphone (not a recent one), and my computer is a recent Hewlett-Packard running on Windows 7 Family Edition.) My microphone froze completely during one of my recordings and since then, any application that produces sound, for example videos viewed on the Internet through my browser (Opera or Chrome), Skype and other games just freeze completely once I start using the microphone. But the big problem now is that I cannot access the sound section of the control panel anymore, regardless of whether the microphone is being used or not. I click "Control Panel" => "Hardware and Sound" and once I click on the "Sound" section the button does not respond and acts as if I never clicked it.I am thinking one of my drivers has been somehow messed up but don't know which one. I have checked the windows device manager but have only found one faulty device named "Saitek Magic Bus Root Enumerator" which does not seem to have any link with the Logitech microphone or the sound card.  Do any of you pros out there have a clue or even a hint which might put me on a track to fix this problem? Should I reinstall a specific sound driver? If so... Read more

Answer:Microphone crashes any application that uses sound!

reinstalling the sound driver sounds ( ) like a good idea. If you cannot uninstall the driver in normal mode, try booting up in safe mode and removing the driver and then rebooting.

Hello I'm having odd issues launching programs on my Windows XP Pro SP1 machine. The only change I've made to my system in the last month is a bios upgrade for my Intel d865PERL motherboard. I had no problems with that update for several weeks until I installed SP2. I had a majority of problems with it (including a STOP error BSOD) so I got a new harddrive and installed a fresh Win XP SP1 installation.

Now, some applications (only 2 i know of so far) fail to launch properly. For example when I launch iTunes or Quicktime the program fails to launch and my event log displays this:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Application Error
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1000

Faulting application itunes.exe, version, faulting module itunes.exe, version, fault address 0x000bedea.

and then I get this in a following error:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Application Error
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1001

Fault bucket 112454710.

I've got the latest drivers from all the manufacturers, and this is a constant problem. My hunch leads me to suspect the motherboard since its a recurring problem on multiple drives. Any insight to this would be very appreciated-

After a recent update I keep getting a message that "Fast Restore Application has encountered a problem and needs to close". This keeps returns every few minutes regardless of whether I "send error report" or "don't send". It's very annoying. Any idea on how I can stop this? Thanks,Doug

im using windows 7 ultimate . im getting appcrashes for everything and a bluescreen then restart

Answer:Blue screen and every application crashes

Hello and welcome to SevenForums!

"ATTEMPTED_EXECUTE_OF_NOEXECUTE_MEMORY (fc)" is the error here. It could be multiple things.

What you first want to try is reseating the RAM sticks and blowing out the dust in the slots. Next, if that doesn't work, my advice would be to run Memtest86 and check to see if there are any errors. If there are any errors, then it may be a hardware problem.

Let me know of the results.

Best of luck,

First of all, let me say I've come here before for help with a problem and received great support and advice!

Now with my latest problem...
I recently did a clean install of Windows 7 home premium x64 (about a month ago), and everything was working fine. Just a few days ago I started experiencing random BSOD's, application crashes (firefox, opera, steam) as well as windows giving me these other symptoms:"AntiMalware Service has experienced an error and needs to close"
Unable to virus scan (w/ Security Essentials) due to the above service crashing.
Frequent "explorer.exe" crashes
Frequent application crashes and hanging
While playing a game (Counter Strike: Source) white specks/noise appeared overlaying on the screen, which made me think it was a graphics driver error. After I closed the game, steam would crash on startup.

My BSOD's have been SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, among others involving "ntfs.sys". Im not sure if this has anything to do with the problem, but the partition that has the new windows install was formatted over a previous partition that was EXT3 format. I have read that ntfs.sys errors can arise from this issue. however, disk check shows nothing. Also, when i attempt to run a full scan with Microsoft Security Essentials, i recieve an error saying it couldnt scaan because the program's service has stopped. I presume that this service is the antimalware service. The error code is 0x800106ba... Read more

Answer:(!) Frequent BSOD's and Application Crashes - Help

Just got another blue screen of death, this time it was "MEMORY_MANAGEMENT" 0x1A error.
It seems all of my errors have to do with ntoskrnl.exe.
Help would be appreciated!

Minidump is attached.
