Windows Explorer pauses or stops working

leave a comment »

Hooking up the company laptop to my private network, always result in pausing (or crashing) Windows Explorer.  Apparently, the installed network drives are causing the problems.

Try the following to fix this (=delete the available network drivers from your system):

1. Start a command prompt

2. Type ‘net use * /d’.  Press ‘Y’ to confirm deletion

3. Fixed (in my case, the network drives are pushed)
