Log Name: Application

Event ID: 1005

Task Category: (100)

Level: Error

Keywords: Classic

User: N/A

Computer: David-PC


Windows cannot access the file for one of the following reasons: there is a problem with the network connection, the disk that the file is stored on, or the storage drivers installed on this computer; or the disk is missing. Windows closed the program Internet Explorer because of this error.


Program: Internet Explorer



The error value is listed in the Additional Data section.

User Action

1. Open the file again. This situation might be a temporary problem that corrects itself when the program runs again.

2. If the file still cannot be accessed and

- It is on the network, your network administrator should verify that there is not a problem with the network and that the server can be contacted.

- It is on a removable disk, for example, a floppy disk or CD-ROM, verify that the disk is fully inserted into the computer.

3. Check and repair the file system by running CHKDSK. To run CHKDSK, click Start, click Run, type CMD, and then click OK. At the command prompt, type CHKDSK /F, and then press ENTER.

4. If the problem persists, restore the file from a backup copy.

5. Determine whether other files on the same disk can be opened. If not, the disk might be damaged. If it is a hard disk, contact your administrator or computer hardware vendor for further assistance.

Hi sunny!!


Hi sunny!! IE8 has done nothing but give me problems lately. This is how i solved my problems. I disabled IE8. Set every thing to high in security except one , and that's just so I can get Windows up dates. I was leaving my PC connected to the internet at night and when my wife would try to read mail or surf the web in the mornings, she couldn't until she rebooted. She was getting messages that said low on memory and that was BS. I started disconnecting from the internet at night and every thing was just fine. I really believe that my PC was being hi jacked through IE8 at night and some hanky panky was going on. I'm still watching to see if this stops the trouble. So far it has;will keep you informed. Would like to hear from others, and I don't mind being called paranoid or crazy:lol: PS The only two things that failed to work after siting all night was IE8 and Outlook Express. Nothing else was affected on my PC. I could surf and read gmail just fine with Fire Fox, but I had to reboot to use IE8 and Outlook Express.===garybear
