Explorer Error

cdamaniacdamania Member Posts: 16 ■□□□□□□□□□

I am getting a explorer.exe error when i open up my computer, my documents, my network places. i do not get it when i open up internet explorer. It says the following:

Faulting Application explorer.exe, version 6.0.2900.2180, faulty module tbnpl.dll, version, fault address 0x000028b9

This was the other one:

The shell was stopped unexpectedly and explorer.exe was restarted.

Any Suggestions or Solutions

Thanks in advance

    Since I don't get any results on a google search for tbnpl.dll, I would guess you have spyware.

    A fresh install if you can stand it.

    Otherwise do a good cleaning on the machine and repair install or atleast do a system file check on it (sfc /scannow).

    I had an explorer.exe problem on an 98 O/S once, which resulted in the same problems you had and it was easier to reinstall the operating system. If your runing on a XP machine, maybe you can do a restore point to an earlier date if possible.

    Additionally, give a Spybot a run over maybe.

    Sorry im getting a little out of order.

    Ensure all of your Hardware is functioning properly then go on the the forementioned fixes. Bad mobo, ram, or HD can cause a plethora of seemingly random problems.
