Specs: Windows Vista, 1GB
Hello everyone, ive actually requested help on this site before and its been good. Right now im having a problem with my windows explorer.

it is everytime i try to delete or move a file to a different location when the process box comes up it just doesnt close when done.

After that i go to my task manager and when i try to close it there it keeps saying to me, windows explorer is not responding and needs to boot everytime.

I was wondering if anyone knew about this problem and how it can be fixed. Thanks Alot.

Look at the event viewer for errors.
Start run eventvwr.msc press enter.

Did you install SP1 for Vista?

ok i ran the event viewer and yes i have errors but the question is what should i do now?

im not sure about the SP1 i think i still have SP2 like since i didnt wanna change anything on my computer, probably a stupid move like.

but yeah im not all professional with them i just know my way around them haha.

but im sure its nothing to do with the SP that im using, but id like to know what i should do with these errors im receiving on the event viewer.

but you know better than me haha, thanks for the reply!

There is no SP2 for Vista. Go to Control Panel/System and check to see if you have SP1.

ok i checked it, it doesnt state that i use SP1, just that i use windows vista: home premium.

and the other info is simply just the name of my computer and stuff so it seems i dont have it.

but like i said when i had windows update up it told me to install it. i stupidly didnt.

although before i go onto that, is this what could be causing this problem thats the main question here? thanks

I would install SP1, though that may not be the cause of your problems with windows explorer.
Your computer fan making funny noises is probably unrelated. Do you know if it's a case fan or the cpu fan ? Can you check temperatures, particularly that of the cpu ?

What do you mean searching Google doesn't help? I have to search Google for the errors too. I don't know every error in the world. I normally don't recommend upgrades but since you have some issues SP1 may help.

However, I would download, update and run anti malware from first.

yeah but u cant get rid of the malware if there is any on my comp.

i tried regcure and it was the same thing, the errors site reccomended that program to me to get rid of the 10110 problem, but again u had to pay.

but what'll do is run a full scan and if theres any malware ill get back to you with the results.

"yeah but u cant get rid of the malware if there is any on my comp." Sure you can. Some free programs may not allow you to actually remove spyware or fix registry errors without paying, but that is not the case with many of the programs, like the one from

it doesnt really matter cause there is no malware on my comp.

ugh lots of people have had this problem resolved by disabling search, but that doesnt work for me either.

just dont get what it is like.
