Windows Explorer Problem

Recommended Posts

Hi, I experience a problem with my Windows Explorer lately. When I open the pc everything seems to work fine in windows explorer but after some minutes the navigation pane is empty showing only Favorites, Libraries and Homegroup. When i try to open the Computer the windows explorer doesnt react and it just shows a blank page. Same happens when I open Control Panel for some reason and it only has a blank page. The icon of some files is missing and when i delete all files from Recycle Bin the icon disappears. I try to reload the desktop but the Icon of the Recycle Bin will be still blank. Moreover, when i right click a folder and press Properties,nothing happens.

I've tried to make full scan on my computer with Malwarebytes and ESET smart security 5 (premium). I did find some viruses and deleted them but i still had the same problem. Please give me a solution ....

Here are some images so you can understand.

:) Lovely pictures special one. - Just a slight suggestion though, - when you upload to Imageshack, upload as jpeg it just does save so much space on the intertubes dear one.

Please give me a solution ....

"Give me" - It is, - Very bold. - I am so much liking such a thing in a post, - and so pleasant about your nature that you have also remembered to say the magic word please.

You wish this advice as a gift ? - Or perhaps are you trying to barter ? -

- Aah, - I only joke, - But fear not zikaros2, - Someone with a better internet connection than myself at present will be with you soon to offer such very excellent free advice I am sure.

Our very own Rongee (Rong) who has often disagreed with the way posts are answered here on the forum is very much your man I feel.

Over to you Rongee Sahib to answer this persons problem.

I don't see any images; just links to an external website.

If you have something to show us, post it directly here in the forum, not on some dubious 3rd-party website.

Thank you for posting the screenshots. Now I'm a bit confused; why the image of the Recycle Bin?

And how did Explorer get from image 1 to image 5 - it's a completely different view! Image 1 shows the left pane as a list of 'Computer'; image 5 shows the left pane as icons of 'Libraries'.

Exactly, it does that all the time. If i open windows explorer from Computer then computer appears also in the left pane but if i open it from documents only libraries favorites and homegroup appears. The thing is that i want full left pane. I mean with everything like Documents/Recent Places/Videos/Music/Downloads etc.

Picture 1 is when i have opened the pc with left pane fine but Computer not opening.

Picture 2 is with the left pane problem.. No full shortcuts only Homegroup/Favorites/Libraries

Picture 3 Problem with Recycle Bin icon

Picture 4 Problem with Control Panel that does not open.

Picture 5 is the same problem with picture 2.
