At least I think windows explorer is a driver, if not sorry. My computer is going slower and slower and both Thunderbird and Firefox hang regularly. Then I get a screen message to say Windows Explorer is not reacting. The damn thing seems to be broken. What do I do, preferably without losing all my settings etc. Cheers from overhot southern France.
Done the virus scan both with McAfee and another programme, all say all clear. Forgive the total ignorance but what do I do for a hard drive test? Is there software I need like Avonquest's Fixit? Cheers
Run a hard drive test in DOS (not windows) with HIRENS CD etc....
All the best Brett
Oh dear, OK DOS is an old operating system in existence before Windows.... am I right? But my system is Windows 7. What is HIRENS? Sorry I am not a technical person just someone with a laptop that keeps sending out Windows explorer has stopped responding. Cheers
