I use Photo Explorer 8 all the time, and have for years. Suddenly it stopped working today. What happens is it freezes for several minutes on the splash screen with about 13% cpu usage. If I add the command line \n, it opens without delay, but then freezes for several minutes if I try to navigate to a folder.
I have tried uninstalling and deleting everything related then reinstalling several times. I also tried 8.5 - it has the same problems.
I am using XP. I haven't made any system changes since it stopped working, and I don't believe there have been any Microsoft patches in that time frame either.
Any help? This is maddening.
