I have been trying to extract the files from a download (kompozer.net) and this error keeps coming up on the screen. I have deleted the download and reuploaded and tried extracting 7 times now and I still keep getting this error:

"explorer.exe - Application error. The exception unknown software exception Oxc000000d occurred in the application at location OX7816c02c "

What is this? and anyone know of the solution? Is this my system? Does explorer.exe mean Internet Explorer ( I always use Mozilla Firefox as my browser)?

Could someone toss me a crumb or two so I can proceed with my project? This software is to create webpages. for win-32bit.

Thank YOU!!! rolleyes1.gif Sincerely

I just downloaded that file, and it unzipped without a problem. What unzipping program do you use?

Thanks for replying to my plight.

Yeah, that's XP built-in extraction program.
Try using 7-zip: http://www.7-zip.org/
That's what I use.

Bless YOUR Heart!!!

I downloaded 7-zip like you suggested and voila! It opened like magic!

I can't thank you enough for helping me. :) You have made my week. I've been struggling with this since last Tuesday(Nov.25, 2008) and you are the only one who gave any suggestion. Bless you, bless you, bless you!!!!

Was my explorer.exe error because of Windows XP Extraction Wizard, then?

Again Thank YOU so very much. Have a wonderful night!

Sincerely, Debbie

You're very welcome :)

It looks like.

You may...

Go Start>Run ("Start Search" in Vista), type in:
sfc /scannow
Click OK (hit Enter in Vista).
Have Windows CD/DVD handy.
If System File Checker (sfc) will find any errors, it'll ask you for the CD/DVD.
If sfc won't find any errors in Windows XP, it'll simply quit, without any message.

I did it!!! I scanned like you said and it just closed like you said. Nothing was apparently found. I'll use the 7-zip from now on.

Thank you so very much for your explicit instructions and for making my night!

Thank YOU again Broni... :) Have a wonderful night and Bless YOU, Bless YOU, Bless YOU for taking the time to help me. From the bottom of my heart...

Sincerely, Debbie
