Need help with Runtime Error
My computer has developed an interesting problem which I cannot seem to solve. Sometimes a window will pop up with the message:
abnormal program termination"
When I click "ok" explorer shuts down, and then restarts itself. (The computer does not turn off). This happens when I do the following things:
1. Right-click on a desktop icon (but not the desktop itself)
2. Try to delete a desktop icon
3. Try to copy a program file
4. Try to cut a program file
5. Try to move a program file
6. Try to right click on a program file
Furthermore, basic explorer fuctions will not work. I cannot use the "find files or folders" program. Other than that, everything else works normally. I can create desktop icons, I can install and run programs, and I can move programs IFF I copy the folder they are in instead of copying the program itself. I cannot find any references on this specific runtime error, and I cannot think of anything that could have caused this problem around the time it began appearing. No viruses or spyware on my computer, and all the hard drives have been checked for errors and defragmented.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
