Can't open any sub-folders or load web-pages.

  1. Have eMachine with WindowsXP

    Can open My Documents fine but when I try to open a folder within My Documents
    I get the following error message:

    Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
    Runtime Error !
    Program C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe
    abnormal program termination

    I can open any folder on My Desktop, or any shortcut to a folder I have on
    My Desktop, but if I try to open any folders within the open one I get that
    error message.

    I've just gone to [tools] and [folder options] and changed the browse fodler options
    from [open each folder in the same window] to [open each folder in its own window]
    and I can now open 'sub' folders.

    But when I try to load any web-favourites I get the error message.
    Even when I type a web address I get the message.

    I've just done a complete system restore (with backup) and the problem
    went away, but now it is back.

    Any ideas ???

  2. I've just found that by making a desktop shortcut to google I can successfully
    open the webpage. And once I have this open I can use my favourites ok.
    But trying to open a web-page directly from an open folder I get the error.

  3. There must be a name for someone who asks a particular question,
    the answer to which could be v.easily found my putting said question
    into google.

    In my defense I thought my problem was preventing my from opening
    any web-pages.

    I googled, I dnlded BHOCaptor 0.5 (wthtmb) and bingo everything is rosy.

    I guess I didn't need to do that damn complete-system restore thing
