Hi everyone,
I am having trouble opening Control Panel. When i attempt to open it i get an error saying that Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. I have also tried to open the control panel with internet explorer and i get basically the same error. I have run virus scans and scanned for just about everything else i can think of to no avail. I can normally fix all the problems that windows can throw at me but this one has me stumped. I have tried windows restore and that didn't work either. I dont want to reinstall windows again so if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
