control panel makes Explorer to crash. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello. Im having some problems with my newly installed Vista computer. speccs AMD X2 6000+ 2048 ddr2ram Nvidea 8600Gt.

    When i try to open the Control panel i get this windows explorer have stopped working and i got to restart windows explorer.
    I had this on a other computer aswell and i just reinstalled windows vista and it worked again. but i dont feel like reinstalling vista now when i have installed every single program and drivers and stuff on it. I've seen that many people have this problem but i've never seen a solution for it. so thats why im posting here.. anyone know what to do to make it work again?

    also when i try to start windows security i get the message windows host process (rundll32) stopped working.

  • hi again. i fixed it! i was surfing around about this problem i found out to move all .cpl files in system32 that was moveable. and put them in system32 folder again one by one and restarting  controll panel each time. and i found out that it was firebird2controll.cpl that was causing the problem
