I have an ACER Aspire 5612ZWLMi laptop running Windows Vista Home premium. Recently, I have noticed that Windows Explorer always crashes when I attempt to move several files at once. It then restarts itself and a box appears stating:

I have tried several times to install the update after downloading it from the linked URL - everytime it comes up with an error message: "This update does not apply to your system".

Any suggestions?

Vista tends to have these kind of problems.
When Explorer restarts; is it fully working? Or do you have to restart your computer?

Thanks for taking an interest. Explorer opens fully, but not to where it was when it crashed.

I see. I would suggest running the startup repair in Vista. That would probably be the easiest solution.

Thanks for that. I will try it when I get home tonight and can access my installation disk.

I tried that and it gave my computer a clean bill of health - it could find nothing wrong with it. Explorer still crashes. However, I can move files by using cut and paste, which is less convenient but at least it works.

So I'm still searching for a proper solution.
