explorer.exe loop issue


New Member
I have a big issue with explorer.exe on my win7 pc. Whenever it loads the desktop, explorer.exe bugs (a window appears "windows tries to find a solution) then it restarts explore.exe but it bugs again and the same message appear again. I have to shut down the processus manually to stop this loop.

It first starts after I download a movie with utorrent (I checked the file and the comment on this movie. No one seems to have the same issue) but it might be the problem.

So if its the problem, how do i delete a file without explorer.exe ?

I also check with s&d, malware, antivirus. It didnt detect anything.

Thanks for your help

edit : issue solved. It was the movie. I deleted it with cmd. It seems the codec of the movie was the issue.
