Re: Explorer.exe crashes before desktop loaded




Hi,

A quick google, and the fact you can get into safe mode ok, suggests
could be a problem with your video drivers.

Worth starting up using base video and checking your graphics card
manufacturers site to see if you can download and install new drivers.

Go into msconfig and under the General tab, dot Selective startup and
Load system services
6937

Then under the Boot tab, select Base video, Apply, OK.

6938

If you have a problem with IE , might like to try running it with no
add-ons
