Bushell.dll

I just confirmed that Bushell.dll crashed explorer.exe in windows 8.1 on my laptop! After suddenly unable to see my files and not being able to enter computr management or run a command line even as admin and after checking my registry and all was normal in shell folders i  found this event :

Faulting application name: explorer.exe, version: 6.3.9600.17039, time stamp: 0x53156588
Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 6.3.9600.17055, time stamp: 0x532954fb
Exception code: 0xc06d007e
Fault offset: 0x0000000000005bf8
Faulting process id: 0x2cf8
Faulting application start time: 0x01cf9c5cd7e247b8
Faulting application path: C:\Windows\explorer.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\KERNELBASE.dll

I tracked down bushell.dll as the fault and i uninstalled Norton Security 2,0

and all Back to normal!Everything works fine!!! I just reinstalled it and i'm tracking it's behavior!I Was starting to think that i've been hit by something!!Glad i'm not but not glad that my security aplication has the ability to mess up my system like that!What's up with this dll???

Looks like you did what is recommended.  http://www.processlibrary.com/en/directory/files/bushell/400968/

Please see http://www.file.net/process/bushell.dll.html

Re: Bushell.dll

Hi!Bjm! I did as recommended although i had'nt seen that one,  but thing is that a normal user would not be able to figure it out!

I forget to mention that when the shell crashed, Norton security disappeared and could not open in any way. that is why my first thought was an attack!

But i trust Norton products as i've been using them since NT tools and i know that with so many different systems and configs and setups , an update can cause things like this!Anyway either an update between 18 and 19 of December caused this or part of the app went bezerk!Thanks again
