Windows 7: Explorer.EXE No such interface supported


09 Jul 2011   #1

Windows7 Home Premium x64
 
 
Explorer.EXE No such interface supported

On attempting to mount: My documents, Pictures, Music, Games, Computer...
receive an error message Explorer.EXE No such interface supported.

I am in the process now of wanting to do a full reformat, but don't want to lose My Pictures or My Music files.

I basically can't do anything with this issue. Can't create a new user to take possession of the folders. Don't want to attempt any regedit.

Can't access removable media.

Running Avira AntiVir Personal, MalwareBytes Anti-Malware and SUPERAntiSpyware. These all scan without returning any problems.

ALL I need is the ability to copy my Photos and Music, and I'm done.

Thanks

If system restore is no help. First I'd try the System File Checker

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If no help, you can do a repair install and keep all your files and programs

Repair Install

System Restore has been no help, also see below:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]
Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Users\Matt>sfc/scannow

Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 5% complete.

Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.

Unfortunately I don't know where my Factory discs for Windows 7 are. Once I find them I'll try that! Definitely won't lose picture or music files?

Thanks

Hey guys, I don't want to appear noob, but if i repair install it isn't going to affect picture/ music folders is it? I have the disks now, so really just need the assurance that it's safe to go ahead.

Thanks

It will only change the Operating System files back to default. Would only affect any appearance changes you have made. The contents of your folders will be unchanged. A Guy

Also you may try Default File Type Associations - Restore. Use the .exe and ones for your other file types you want to save.

Unless your system came with SP1 pre-installed, a repair install won't work.

If this is all you want to do, you can try the Copy and Paste method.

Or, if you're more comfortable with Linux, you can run a Live CD such as Ubuntu.
