  • Windows Explorer crashes when using thr 'Run As' option...!!??

    Hi,

    I recently found a problem in my Win XP pro SP3 workstation that, the explorer.exe crashes whenever I use the 'Run As' option to run a program as administrator. I tried with many a programs and MMC snaps to find the same result. The explorer simply crashes and comes back but the application I wanted never run.

    I tried with other user profiles as well but in vain. Can it be a windows update/hot fix mess??..........please don't tell me to format my PC

    Ideas please...!

    insaf,

    Try removing the profile for the administrator user and see how that goes.

    you can do this by going into computer properties, advanced system setting, profiles

      you already tryed with another user, so i would suggest somethig else.
      I think it might be a harm app that does not permit you to use the admin permissions.

      in this case i would recommend using Combofix:

      otherwise i would assume your system files are corrupted, in this case use the following command:
      sfc /scannow

      for more information about this command:

      Good luck!
