Windows 7: Certain folders crashing Windows Explorer

17 Oct 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

I'm afraid I have no idea what that is... I'm assuming it's something that came in the box with my computer when I bought it. Unfortunately, I'm living on residence at my university at the moment, so I'll have to wait until the weekend to get to that.

At this point I think I'll just buy a new computer. It's been a couple of years anyways. I'll rip the hard drive out of this one and put it in an enclosure so I can rescue my things (hopefully the hard drive itself isn't completely dead).

Sorry if I've been a bit crazy. Stressful week, and computer issues just made it worse... Thanks a lot for the help! If you have any more suggestions to revive this computer so I can use it/ back things up before I go get a new one, that'd still be much appreciated <3
