    Default Windows 7 Explorer Failures - Unsolvable for the last 17 months now.

    The supposed solutions mentioned in pg2 of the thread linked below don't work. However the problem is adequately described in that thread.

    Basically Win7 explorer hangs with a perpetual hourglass and every fourth or fifth instance just fails with an advice that "Windows is looking for a solution to the problem".



    After an assurance that "Windows Explorer will shortly restart", sometimes it does and most times it doesn't.

    A number of pposters on that thread are suffering the same symptoms.

    Anybody familiar with causes or solutions?

    Have you checked for any system updates recently? Hanging graphics tend toward video graphics drivers being clobbered by MS updates. Also, check to see if screen saver is set to revert to Welcome screen. That worked for me on some machines.

    Windows 7 Explorer is still failing - even after the Service Pack was applied. Anybody having the same problem?
