    My laptop has one issue which is quite troublesome. Whenever I open the windows file explorer it works perfectly fine but then just as I try to delete, rename or move a file or do any other action, the windows file explorer stops responding. I have to close the application and restart it. Note that in such a situation, all background processes are going just like in normal circumstances. Kindly help.

    :)

    Windows explorer crashing

    Hi,

    I am having the same problem as the OP in this thread.
    Windows Explorer crashes whenever I open my external HDD or thumb drive in explorer..

    I have tried the fixes listed in the above thread and I am getting the same error message as 'ktadie' (post 16). I think this is because I am running Windows 7 Professional. Windows explorer crashes when I open my 'Films' folder on my brand new 2tb external HDD. I have about 300 .avi files in this folder and some of the .avi files are several years old.

    In short I believe I need the same fix given by 'Wile E' (post 7) but updated for Windows 7 Professional.

    Thanks in advance.
