When I try to use Windows Explorer as a file manager in XP, I get this error
message:
"Explorer.exe - Application error
The instruction at "0x03132e30" referenced memory at "0x031b248c". The
memory could not be "read".
Click OK to terminate the program
Click CANCEL to debug the program"

When I hit "OK", I get this message:
"Error
Runtime error 216 at 00002E30."

I will appreciate advice as to how to eliminate this error message.

Robert,

Click Start, Run and type eventvwr.msc
Select Application entry in the left pane
In the right-pane, look for the Error entry denoted by a Red X

Sort by date and track-down the entry based on what time the error exactly
occurred. Locate and double-click the entry and you'll see more information
in the resulting dialog. Click the copy button at the top and copy the whole
event and paste it to a Notepad document and save it. Post the information
here.
