    Folks:

    My Windows Explorer [not Internet Explorer but the file handling program] has stopped working with the following Error Message. "Windows Explorer has Stopped Working..." I can not: Copy, Paste, Delete, change Properties, Rename, or Launch programs from Windows Explorer. Any right click on a file or folder name gets the error message as does any left click on a file name. I am using Vista Home Premium, SP1.

    Other than wiping the hard drive and starting from scratch, is there any way to correct this problem.

    Note: Several other Directory programs including PowerDesk 7.0 and X2 Explorer Lite have the same problem.

    A Freeware Program, Windows File Explorer Version 0.6 seems to work OK with the exception of crashes when right clicking on a file. However, by going to the file menu, I am able to do what I need to do with regard to copying, etc.

    Does the beginning of this problem correspond with adding any of the programs mentioned above?

    Any other system changes recently?

    The problem occured long after the other programs were installed. Program occured in stages. At times only some portions of program were not workable, such as being able to check file properties, then lost ability to copy files, etc.

    It sounds like one of those other programs (likely the Freeware program, but it could be the last one installed or used) that has caused this problem. If you have the install files for them, or don't care if you lose one or more of them, then I would suggest uninstalling them one by one and checking Windows Explorer's functionality after you reboot after each uninstall.

    Thanks for the advise. The problem appears to have been in a OCR demo program.

    At least for now, the program appears to work properly.

    Thanks to all that replied.
