IE crashing moving to 'explorer view'

  Asked By: Gustavo    Date: May 26    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1209

We have WSS running (msde database) here and all the clients are xp sp2
accessing it.

We've found an increasing problem where when you click on 'explorer view' in
document libraries and especially picture libraries the IE will crash part
loading the page. If this is left for a very long time it occassionally
comes back to life with the explorer view. Most times it just it doesn't
respond at all.

The libraries are not large, some with only one file in it.

Anyone had any similar issues?

There is a possibility that this is a client issue.

I have seen that once upgraded to xp sp2, the webclient services will hang,
therefore explorer  view will not work.
