How is it that every time I turn on my laptop (Vista 64bit), the first time I right click on any file Windows explorer locks up and stops responding? I have to force close the folder I'm in but then when I re-open the folder and right click the same file everything is fine.
It does this every time without fail and it doesn't matter how long the computer has been running, it could be an hour before I try it and it still does it.
So there you go geeks. Any ideas please?

Is that a stab or is there a reason?

Will be doing soon hopefully. The only reason I didn't revert to XP was because I read about it being tricky with the drivers (Dell studio 15). 7's on it's way this month with a bit of luck.

Why not use the rc for now?

To be honest, I would hold down the windows key and press R.

You will get the RUN box.

Type msconfig and press enter

Go along to startup and uncheck all the rubbish that is starting up when windows is starting up.

might be worth opening task manager then watching the performance graph when you rc for the first time and see what appears to be happening - i.e. is an app or process maxxing out the cpu, memory or anythin else...

I've got it downloaded and am tempted but for the sake of a couple of weeks I may as well hang on.

I'm always on top of that. Only have anti-virus and roboform checked.

Will give it a try, thanks.

Ok geeks. I've unchecked both Avast and Roboform in msconfig and it seems to have cured it. Just gotta go back now and re-enable them both one at a time to isolate the culprit.
I'll be ok now thanks.
Rep to advisors.

now i'm not to sure but i believe that it's because explorer.exe hasn't finished loading so just give it a bit longer to load when you first boot up.

its often something to do with shell extensions.

He/She has already said it could be a hour after load up it does not matter, it will always hang first time.

Why, is it raining where you are? Dry here.


Anyway, it was Avast. It must have got corrupted somehow. I un/re-installed and it's fine now.
