I'm running Vista 32-Bit, and I'm having a wee bit of an issue. Whenever I go to access my storage drive (B:\), it will let me look around for about 10 seconds, then windows explorer crashes, giving me this error:

I ran chkdsk, and everything appears to be fine. Any suggestions?

I would venture a guess the registry is corrupt. Exception code: c0000005

Dout it will resolve the issue, but you can try running registry repair like CC cleaner or Windows Advanced System Care free.

Also, try and do a system restore to a point before the problem first occurred if possible. If that doesn't work and you can not find instructions to repair manually, a reinstall of the Vista may be the only fix available to you.

Unfortunately it's been doing this for awhile, and I just haven't had the time to care about it until now. I've considered doing a windows reinstall (for a few reasons), but was just wondering if this was an easy fix. Thanks for the help.

One other longshot suggestion. Swap out the SATA cable and move the drive to a different SATA header on the MB. A longshot for the problem you are having which sounds like an OS registry corruption.
