Windows Explorer crashes even in safe mode CAUSE still unknown.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Currently i'm scanning with MSE on safe mode but from time to time the windows explorer crashes but the MSE scan isn't crashing and still proceeding in the scanning process.

I've tried sfc /scannow but it stucks at 44%

Right now i'm waiting for MSE to finish if its the cause is a virus/malware.

Any suggestion if it isn't a virus/malware?

I need help!

I haven't tried CHKDSK and System Restore yet cuz i can't even right click My Computer cuz of the WINDOWS EXPLORER crashing.

Note: A simple click on the start button or my computer crashes/restarts the Windows Explorer.

Could it be your 1TB Seagate is just going bad?

On OCN and other websites you read about seagate being very unreliable. Even people who get a fresh one back from RMA complain 1-2months later it went bad again

I also came in to that conclusion of yours but is there a way to retrieve the files i have there on my 1TB HDD?

btw does RAM have to do with the problem as well in this current situation?

It can also be your RAM, i remember when i had a fualty memory stick i had all kinds of weird problems, Files getting corrupt, weird BSODS etc.
You should run MemtestX86 http://www.memtest86.com/ bootable dos or Memtest http://hcidesign.com/memtest/ in Windows itself to find out if your RAM is the thing here.

Im no expert in file recovery in any sort, but i think you should have a different disk with a windows installation, and from that windows try to reach the files on the harddisk. Maybe some specialized software is required if the disk is indeed broken
