gpedit.msc should be available if you have administrator privileges. If you still can't get it working, find another way how to open gpedit.msc.

I see 4 crashes, 3 identical; the 4th similar - IE8 x86 w/ faulting module = ntdll.dll and 0xc0000005 exception code = memory access violation, i.e., "Access Denied"

Usually, IE8 + ntdll.dll + 0xc0000005 = 3rd party firewall as the underlying cause.

Do you have an Internet Security app installed - 3rd party firewall?

This thread is discussing "explorer.exe", not "iexplore.exe"

explorer.exe is the program that runs file browsing, desktop, start menu, etc.

iexplore.exe is Internet Explorer

VaggelisL, you should probably start a new thread rather than confusing this one. Due to its age, you are unlikely to get a helpful response from the original thread starter or that person's helpers. If you start your own thread, you can get dedicated assistance from our crash experts.

I, already, started another post under the title Explorer crashes with AppCrash mesage pointing to faulty "ntdll.dll", but I thought I should give it a try in here, too, as it was dealing with a problem "close" to mine. So...OK. 'm moving solely to my own post... Thanks and I hope someone will be able to help !!
