Re: Windows explorer


DRM Sucks

Flightless Bird
I have the same problem "To help protect your computer, Windows has closed
this program: Windows Explorer"

How do I fix this them if it's not Windows Explorer causing the problem???

I take it this is going to be a process that has afixed itself to Windows
Explorer and caused DEP to terminate it each time i try to open an explorer

What do I do now?
