Out of nowhere, I started getting a Windows Explorer error message. Please see attached. I've run the usual anti-virus & anti-spyware apps, and tried to decipher the error message. It's beyond me meager skills.

Any ideas out there among you tech smarties? Thanks.

Click Start, click Run, type eventvwr.msc in the Open box, and then press Enter.
Click the Application category.

Look For Recent Errors > Double Click on them > Another Windows Will open > On the Right Side use the Double Notepad icon to copy the error paste them here

Dear DH or other,
It appears the culprit is MS Word. When I click on a Word file under Start/My Documents or Start/My Recent Documents, the file doesn't open. Just Word itself. I then have to open the file within Word.

I suspect then, that a WE error message is subsequently displayed as a result of the failure to open the file via the Start folder.

If that's the case, would you recommend I uninstall/reinstall Word?
:confused:
