Re: [BCAB] WINDOWS EXPLORER PROBLEM Lewis Crack 22 Nov 2012 12:56 GMT
Hi Steve. A Disk Scan may be helpful. Do the following. 1. Go to Desktop > Computer. 2. Press enter. 3. When the window opens (if Explorer works), arrow to your C Drive, and press Alt + Enter. 4. Control Tab to the Tools Tab, tab to the Error Checking Check NOw Button, and press space. 5. Tab to a checkbox that says Automatically Fix File Systems Errors, and press Space. Also tab to the checkbox that says Automatically Scan for an attempt recovery of Bad Sectors, and press space. 6. Tab to the Start Button. 7. A dialog box will tell you that Windows needs to be rebooted, tab to the Schedule Disk Check Button and press space or enter. Note: This will not restart the computer, but will scan when you next restart your machine manually. 8. Tab to the OK Button and press Enter. 9. Alt F4 from the window to close it. 10. You're done, next time your computer restarts, a disk scan will take place, this will take up to 2/3 hours, depending on the state of your disk, so make sure you are not needing to do anything or have something else to do whilst the scan completes. I hope this helps. to solve the issue. Regards. Lewis.
