for the past week ive been having a real problem with my pc when i try to open certain folders that contain video files and more recentyly its started to happen when i try to open actual video files/movies. Even ones that worked normally before. its driving me crazy. I get the message gui saying..
<b> "windows explorer has encountered an eroor and needs to close"</b>
when i click on the link that says- '...data this error report contains i get the following gui message..
<b> "AppName: explorer.exe AppVer: 6.0.2900.3156 ModName: unknown
ModVer: 0.0.0.0 Offset: 00000000" </b>
the app name of course changes depending on whats crashed, last time it was- ctcms.exe- (the media player)
Ive done SafeMode scans for viruses, spyware. Used RegCure, reg mechanic. spyware doctor, antivir, avast.
but if anything the problem is worse now that when it started. Could it be some kind of malware?
Id like to avoid doin a system restore as i dont want to loose sw and or movies, tunes, and updates since my last restore point about 8 months ago. Help ...
