Unable to open folders - The remote procedure call failed and did not execute.

Unable to open folders - The remote procedure call failed and did not execute.
Views: 337

I can't seem to open any folder using Explorer in Windows 7, as it fails with the above error. This happened after Explorer stopped picking up metadata on files, and so I killed and restarted explorer using Task Manager.

Files and folders on my Desktop still show up, and files still open in their respective applications, but folders won't show, as with the error. Happens with any local folder.

I can't find anything on Google. I haven't touched any Explorer settings, and I'm not interested in an Explorer alternative. I can restart, but this has happened once before, so I'm thinking it'll happen again after a restart.

Randomly, (Every 20 minutes) while navigating through Windows Explorer I will get a message that says Windows Explorer is not responding and I get an option to either wait or close now. When I choose to close now, I can not open windows explorer again for about 10 minutes. Each attempt results in a Remote Procedure Call Failed and Did Not Execute.

-Windows Vista initially installed; Dell provided a windows 7 Installation CD once it came out.

When I tried to make the System Health Report, it came up with "The system cannot find the specified path." I'm currently running everything from Safe Mode with networking since if I tried to boot up regularly, the system locks up with little CPU usage, explorer.exe fails and I get the error "The remote procedure call failed and did not execute" when I try to open any folder, the computer locks up again before finally BSOD.

explorer.exe - The remote procedure call failed and did not execute

explorer.exe - The remote procedure call failed and did not execute Icon

I'm having a serious issue with my Windows 7 64bit.

Immediately after Windows 7 startup, everything seem fine. I start up programs and everything works. But a short while (~10 seconds) after startup, I cannot start any 32 bit software (Tried Google Chrome, Spotify, Steam, WinRar now.

Nothing starts). The programs that I had started earlier works fine. Other software (Notepad & Internet explorer) seems to work fine. I guess these two programs are 64-bit.

If I close any of the software that I had started earlier then I cannot start them again. I tried to right-click the programs .exe file but then the window crashes. I restart explorer.exe but then NOTHING works.

I can't even open My Computer (Error message: "explorer.exe - The remote procedure call failed and did not execute").
