My problem is within an hour of opening Windows Explorer, something goes wrong. Either Explorer will crash, shutting itself down along with a couple other programs, or Windows will crash entirely, complete with the blue screen of death that I haven’t seen since Windows 95. Exciting.
If I don’t open Windows Explorer, all is good. But that’s not really a solution. I’ve tried the following, but neither worked. I’m still looking for something that works for me.
Click the “Start” menu, and type “Folder Options” in the search bar without the quotation marks. Press Enter to see the dialog window.
Click the “View” tab to see a set of check boxes falling under “Advanced Settings.” Tick the “Launch Folder Windows in a Separate Process” checkbox (in Chinese this is “在单独的进程中打开文件夹窗口”).
Click the “OK” button to apply the changes.
Copy and paste the explorer.exe program from C:\Windows\ to C:\Windows\System32
