    Attempting to add attachments to emails, using Outlook Express 6 or Hotmail, I find that when I arrive at the My pictures folder, the program closes. Ironically, as I tried to post an Avatar on joining CertForums today in order to enter this plea for help, the same thing happened. I was thrown out of the forum, back to my desktop..

    Can anyone throw any light on what's happeneing - I would very much appreciate any assistance.

    Can you manually browse to your My Documents folder?

    If I interpret you right, then that is what I'm trying to do when I go looking for a photo to attach. In Outlook Express a window appears after you click on the paperclip (in Hotmail you click on a browse button) and you can then browse your way to the photo you want. It is while I'm actually doing this, that the program crashes. So I suppose the answer to your question is: no I can't..

    Sorry, what I meant was can you open up the My Pictures folder by either going to Start, My Pictures. or by Openning up My Computer, C:, Documents and Settings, Your Name, My Pictures.

    do you have your system configured to display the images in the my pictures folder as thumbnails or as a filmstrip? if so, go for a different view, like icons, or list. you may have a corrupt image that crashes the application when it tries to load the thumbnails.

    I tried to access My Pictures via My Computer etc as suggested and before all the icons for the folders had appeared in the My Pictures directory, I received the following message:
    Windows Explorere has encountered a problem an needs to close. We are sorry etc

    Clicking for more info on the error, I discovered Error signature:
    AppName: explorer.exe AppVer: 6.0.2900.2180 ModName;ntdll.dll
    ModVer 5.1.2600.2180 Offset: 0001142e

    Clicking to view more technical info, I was faced with lines and lines of code and information - the Error Report Contents.

    Can you deduce anything from this series of events?

    And incidentally d-fFaktor, I tried changing the way the images were displayed as you suggested - no improvement..

    Thanks for your efforts so far,
    Nick

    It sounds to me like adware or spyware contamination. Something may have installed a dodgy BHO (browser helper object). They can affect the functionality of windows, not just Internet Explorer. IE is very integrated into the operating system.

    I would run some anti-malware apps...

    Ewido
    Spybot Search and Destroy
    Lavasoft's Adaware
    Microsoft's Anti-Spyware beta

    Also you can disable the third party BHOs by going into Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options > Advanced - Look for the line enable third party browser extensions and untick the check box and re-boot.

    Hi Bluerinse,

    Have been running Spybot, Ad-aware, CWShredder & AVG a/virus regularly. Just used Ewido for first time yesterday - it found 77 dodgy objects, so I've got rid of those. What I did find myself was a rogue dialer GBDialer, sitting in my dialup connections box. I deleted this - could there be other stuff lurking that might be causing my problem?

    I've disabled 3rd party BHOs as you suggested (is that something that I would want to re-enable later? What function does it serve?)

    Still I have the problem...

    I'm curious,

    Can you do a search for *.jpg on your computer and access a file when it lists it? A file in the My Pictures folder that is.

    Yep, a search on *.jpg brings up all my photos no problem and I can click on one to see it individually on the screen, no problem..

    Yes there could be other stuff lurking around. I have yet to find a malware removal tool that can find and remove all the adware and spyware infestations. That is why I suggested running the ones I listed. They are all free except Ewido, which has full functionality for 14 days I think.

    If you were left with a dialer (GBdialer) the ones you ran clearly did not do their job fully.

    I'm not an expert in HJT, but it looks as if there is a stuck installation in there. Something from btinternet? This needs to be fixed first.

    I'd also tentatively suggest that you have too many items like PestPatrol all running at the same time. Some of these can trip over each other.

    And, IMHO, things like Trillian should only be started when you actualy want to use them (unless you are using messaging all the time when the computer is on)!

    Finaly - you are using Onspeed which messes about with all sorts of things like images. It may be worthwhile deinstalling this to see if that is part of the problem.

    Harry.

    Don’t know if it would help but have you tried logging onto the PC with a different user profile and trying to get into the My Pictures folders for that profile? It should be empty if it’s a new user you have created.

    Just a guess though, I’ve had a few corrupt profiles at work recently so for every desktop problem I say it’s a corrupt user profile now, think I’m going mad! :blink
