    Hello,

    I am running 2000 with SP4. Recently I am having a problem with explorer hanging. It hangs evertime I try to drag a file, right click it for properties or try to delete. Obviously this is a big problem. Otherwise windows runs fine. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.
    Mike

    Try this Start/Run Type: services.msc
    Scroll down to Windows Image Acquisition , Stop the service then set it to Disabled

    Let me know if this works for you.

    Thanks for your reply. I looked under services, however that service is not listed. I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing.

    Rude,

    Thanks for the reply again. It's not IE that's the problem... its explorer itself, explorer.exe. I'm sure you know what that is so I won't explain it. Know what I mean?
