I am using Windows XP SP3. When I shut down my PC it shows that Windows Explorer will end now. If I click on it, it will take time to shut down. The error happens each time.
were you able to find out why explorer crashes for you?
Were you also able to fix the issue and was ha14's comment helpful?
Go to msconfig, try CTRL-ALT-DEL and "End Task" on everything that is running except Explorer and Systray. If this resolves the problem then there is a program running in the background that is causing the problem. A simple process of elimination should determine what program is causing the errors
I would suggest you to check in safe mode, follow the steps
the computer and keep tapping F8 till you reach the boot menu.
Safe mode and press Enter.
If this does not occur in safe mode then, I would suggest you to
do a clean boot and check.
