    Hi all,

    I get a strange msg when i log into my user account on my current OS
    windows vista ultimate.
    I was trying to install a new theme where i had to replace the existing
    Explorer.exe and shell32 files in the windows folder. Then i restarted
    my pc for the theme to take effect. but it showed a message

    " The ordinal 874 could not be located in the dynamic link library
    SHELL32.dll "

    and then another window popped up saying:

    "WINDOWS EXPLORER HAS STOPPED WORKING
    -->Check for an online solution
    -->close the program
    Details of problem
    "
    Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
    Application Name: Explorer.exe
    Application Version: 6.0.6001.18000
    Application Timestamp: 47918e5d
    Fault Module Name: SHELL32.dll
    Fault Module Version: 6.0.6000.16386
    Fault Module Timestamp: 4549bdc9

    Exception Offset: 00008fc7
    OS Version: 6.0.6000.2.0.0.256.1

    I don't even know how you could try to do that :)

    I'd suggest that you boot to command prompt (repeatedly press F8 just
    before and during Windows startup and select "boot to command prompt"; you
    will need to use the keyboard, not the mouse.

    When it is booted, run the command "sfc /scannow", without the quotes and
    followed by the enter key. It will take a long time, IIRC, so wait and hope
    for the best.

    Thanks for replying,
    I tried to fix it until six in the morn! All this i was doing using the
    task manager and used 'new task-->browse' to go through different files
    and folders. I was even able to access internet without the explorer.
    [​IMG] During this fixing session somewhere i had cleaned my c drive
    using cleanmgr.exe and then created a task cleanmgr. I had also used
    trial version of registry booster to fix 15 of my registry problems. The
    next day i just logged in safe mode and opened the 'properties' of
    explorer.exe (the copy which i got along with the theme) and restored it
    back to previous session (one day prior to app crash)...
    then i went in task manager --> new task--> opened the restored
    explorer.exe to find my windows explorer back on the screen. Then i
    replaced this restored version of explorer.exe in the windows folder.
    since then the start up is normal. I did not get the "missing ordinal"
    message too.

    So dont know what exactly worked:
    ShellExView (used to disable non MS components)
    registry booster
    cleanmgr.exe
    previous session of explorer.exe

    but something miraculously recovered my pc...lolz :roflmao:

    Well, I would say it was pure blind luck. You seem to have messed around a
    lot, so I'd say you're lucky you could recover.

    I wouldn't trust anything that provides its own explorers without lots of
    assurances from knowledgeable people, and I wouldn't trust any third party
    cleanup or registry software...
