    Running windows vista ultimate 32bit sp1. My problem is that explorer.exe keeps crashing everytime i open any folder. for example my computer, c:/, e:/jee/jejej/doosapks/ etc. any folder.
    Everything worked fine untill today. I don't remember that i did anything special today. Also i ran virus scanner etc. nothing special was found.

    I'm pretty sure that there won't be "simple" answer to this problem or maybe no answer at all. but i'll ask anyway: What should i do? : < Maybe i just need to format everything once agaain
    Thanks in advance.

    run a system restore? If it was working fine two days ago, set it back two days. If for some reason you can't access system restore, try booting windows in safe mode and running it (the run command name for it is eluding me for the moment)

    What virus scanner did you try?

    And like notnarb said, try to restore the system using System Restore.

    I used kaspersky antivirus.

    Could try that restoring. Not sure if i've system restore on, but maybe it is. :|
    Edit:
    Ok the oldest restore point is few hours ago. Maybe i'll just format this after few days. :|

    Does the problem happen in safe mode?
