    "Windows Explorer
    Windows Explorer encountered a problem and needs to close...."

    The Shell ExView is very impressive and saved my hard drives life! I can't thank you enough for taking the time to help me! The culprit was a shell extension in PowerDesk of a 2008 vintage...go figure! Computers are a fantastic tool...thanks for your expertise!!
