not exactly sure what is wrong, but get a hold of a ubuntu live cd, and delete using ubuntu


Odd coincidence I regained about 19GB's of space on my second hard drives today doing exactly this, it seems like Windows 7 does not like you to delete old windows installs.

Also I was going to recommend the same thing.

You boot into Ubuntu, and open the windows partition and go find the offending file, then delete it, reboot and there you go no more crashing from said file.

You do realize your typing on a computer connected to the internet, the GREATEST FUCKING SOURCE OF KNOWLEDGE know to man kind. You literally have the cumulative knowledge of the world at your finger tips, you can type anything into google and receive an answer. Long story short, go to Ubuntu.com (or google it) click on the download page, download the 32bit or 64bit version depending on your CPU, burn that to a disc, start it in Live mode (i.e. dont install it, just boot off the disc). And ta-da, instant access to your filesystem.

@Crass, i thought i had to buy it 1st off, i was just looking for an internal way to fix it which i did, and yes i used the internet to figure it out i googled problems with windows explorer crashing, and it said something about looking at the error logs so i did and i found some of the warning ones and found the files i needed and deleted them and it was more that i couldnt delete a file there were .dll files running that i figured out were depending on this certain file

You win GBATemp post of the decade. I giggled like a school girl. This is why we need Karma buttons.
