i have a windows XP home edition... i remember deleting something in the Local Disk (C:) in 'my computer' because i thought it wasn't important (not sure if it has something to do with the problem i have now) ... well, whenever i open 'my music' folder a window would popup saying: Windows Explorer has encountered a problem... here's a pic--> http://img.photobuck...JiWon/error.jpg

after i click either send or don't send error, it will close all the internet browser and folders that i am using at the moment... i tried moving all my music files in a new folder, but then the error popup still appears. Can u please help me?? Thank you very much :whistling:

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot

You can borrow one, same version as was originally installed

OR

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Start the System Restore Utility at a command prompt

1. Restart your computer, and keep tapping F8 during the initial start-up until you get options, select Safe Mode with a Command Prompt then press enter.

2. Log on to your computer with an administrator account or with an account that has administrator credentials.

3. Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:

%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

4. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to an earlier state.

Look for the most recent system checkpoint created before the errors to restore from

For additional information about the Safe mode with a command prompt, click the following article number to see a description of the Safe Mode Boot Options in Windows XPthe article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 315222

You need an XP Home CD

If you needed to download SP2 then you need an SP1 XP Home CD
