Hello,

am using windows 7 but from today evening onwards, my computer has gone into a loop where it keeps restarting explorer time and again. And am not able to do anything.

This problem is present even in safe mode.

I tried fixing it by deselecting all the startup user application after using msconfig cmd.
in safe mode. but still no help.

I saw a pattern in the startup bar that every time explorer restarts it tries to open network connections. hence i disabled all network services but again same story.


Here is what my event viewer is saying

Source: Application error
event id: 1005
task category(100)
file: c:\user\tim\AppData\Local\microsoft\windows\explorer\thumbcache_idx.db
windows cannot access the file because: there is a problem with the network connection.the disk that the file is stored on. or the storage driver installed on this computer.

Try this, Open a command prompt box as the administrator and run the command "SFC /scannow" Also run the disk check utility (right click on the drive and select properties, select tools)
