I am having DELL Studio 1450 Laptop with Windows7 home premium.
I used to download movies from internet. most of them in rar part files.after extracting movie when i try to delete those rar files, windows explorer crashes.
It's not happening all the time. but almost 50% of time.after trying 3-4 times, i can succeed.
I had updated updated all the drivers for my system and intalled new version of winrar too. still same crash happens.
Crash happens both for Shift+Del and Del to recycle bin.
mostly from rapidshare, hotfile & megaupload.
Having Mcafee full protection & done some online scanning also. no use.
It happened in Vista too. I bought my laptop with Vista home premium & got upgrade for Win7 & installed.
It's not happening always, sometimes only. I used to scan all files before unrar.
Hope it may be a flaw with windows itself. Used to send error report also. no use.
Considering where you're downloading from, then this seems illegal and you probably picked up a virus, which many people would say serves you right. I won't pass judgement on you, but your best recourse is to just reformat your hard drive (all of them if you have multiple) and reinstall your OS. I would also say, stay away from downloading from those sites.
Hereafter I'll try not to download things form these Servers.
But it happens for some of the rar files i created also not only from the files downloaded only.
fresh rars created also causes this error.
