However, I'm now left with windows explorer constantly restarting itself saying it has encopuntered a problem and needs to close. Debugging causes a command window to briefly appear. Sending an error report sends (or it appears to send a report to Microsoft.) and don't send causes the screen to be cleared and refreshed, whereby within 3/4 seconds the explorer error is back again.
In task manager the CPU usage is constantly at 100%.
The application log in Event Viewer has an event ID of 1000 ana a description that says "Faulting application explorer.exe, version 6.0.2800.1106, faulting module unknown, version, 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x00000000.
Has anyone got any suggestions. Please don't suggest reformating and installing.
Thanks very much.
