Have uploaded URL for my system specification page. In case this fails, my machine is an Acer Aspire 5633WLMi, 160 GB hard Drive (55 GB free), 2 GB RAM, loaded with OEM pre-installed Vista Home Premium (updated by now to SP2). System is 3.5 years old.
Early in its operating life the problem started and persists to this day - even in Safe Mode.
When I attempt to save a Window-created file (created using notepad, wordpad or other Windows program) to my hard drive or external flash drive, explorer crashes within 2 secs of clicking on
in the file tree in the left hand pane of the explorer window. Peculiarly the program does not crash with the same invariable consistency if I click on the
symbol to the left of the computer icon.
I am at a loss and would very much like NOT to have to re-install Vista.
Can anyone help ?
