Windows 7: Explorer.exe freezes CONSTANTLY.

08 Jun 2009   #1

Explorer.exe freezes CONSTANTLY.

I've been using 7137 for a long time, and I haven't had any problems with it until yesterday. I'll be doing normal stuff, like using Chrome, etc. When I try and click an icon on my taskbar, nothing happens. I get the blue spinning wheel.

To add, I can't even use keyboard shortcuts to open up Run, Task Manager, and more.

Yep. I get the same. See my Not Responding threads.
I can no longer use Windows 7, had to go back to XP to do my work. I am not happy. There seems to be no answer to it.

It did happen to me a few times but just let explorer.exe quit and start it up again, it'll be back to normal.
