G'Day, I hope someone can help me please. I've been getting crashes in explorer lately just by opening files/folders. Some internet research suggests it might be related to a windows update!! They are not really crashes. Explorer just stops, throws up an error message, screen refreshes and a couple of icons sometimes move around. Lose a couple of icons from systray too. Of course running apps shut down too. Funny that it happens when I'm just opening/shutting folders/files. read lots of threads on various forums all talking about windows updates messing with the ntdll.dll module. At a bit of a loss at present. Don't really want to do a fresh install. And might get the pob staright back as soon as I get all the updates again. It always relates to ntdll.dll which was altered apparently in update rollup 1 for win xp (826939) which contained the offending update 815021. 826939 is listed in add/remove programs, but not 815021. There are 20 updates in the bundle so I'm reluctant to uninstall. Here are a couple of error logs: 10/07/2004 5:51 PM Application Error Faulting application explorer.exe, version 6.0.2800.1221, faulting module ntdll.dll, version 5.1.2600.1217, fault address 0x00008d2c. 11/07/2004 12:02 AM Application Error Faulting application explorer.exe, version 6.0.2800.1221, faulting module ntdll.dll, version 5.1.2600.1217, fault address 0x000085c2.
