hello. several times when I am about to shut down my computer, after pressing the 'turn off computer' button, the system freezes for a moment and then i get the message: "windows explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close" with the 'send report' and 'don't send' buttons. I click on don't send and it seems that it re-runs explorer.exe and then i have to press turn off computer again, this time with no problem.

the weird thing is that it doesn't always give me this message. for example if i just start my computer and immediately shut it down, there is no error. it's only after using it for a long time so i guess that it may have something to do with a program or something!?

anyone having the same problem or has anything to suggest? please help, it's really annoying!!

thanx

Well you could turn off error reporting. That would probably make it go away.

Start > control panel > system > advanced tab > error reporting button >
uncheck Enable error reporting > ok, apply and exit.

Then just to be sure that Microsoft doesn't get stubborn on you, go to Start >
in the run menu, type in services.msc > navigate to the error reporting service and double click it > in the "Startup type" window, click on the drop down arrow and select Disabled >
Apply, ok and exit.

You won't see that error again.

Hello kyris :smile:

Use the machine normally for a while, then prepare to shutdown by closing everything down

Right click Taskbar/Task Manager
Applications Tab. Is anything running?
Processes Tab. Is anything using CPU? (other than System Idle Process which will be around 99%)

Also look here for errors
Control Panel / Performance and Maintenance / Admin Tools / Event Viewer / System.
Look for "Red" errors. Double click on error.
Take a note of the Event ID and also the Source and post them back.

there are two errors which seem to occur every day. one with ID 10016 and the other with id 7026.

note that i used to get the error when i clicked on Turn off my computer, i.e before hoosing standby, shut down or restart.

Israel2737 - Although it may seem like you have the same problem - we can not be sure. You need to make a new thread so we can help you further :smile:

Thanks,
