Hello one and all,

I have recently begun having a problem with a
Windows error message box appearing styating that Windows Explorer has
encountered a problem and needs to shut down. It has happened a few times and
I am pretty sure it always happens right after I use the 'x' box in the top
right corner of a window to shut it down, although not every time. Most
recently I checked the technical information when it happened and it said
that if I were to send an error report to microsoft that the report would
include the file 'del18_appcompat.txt'. which was located in my Windows
temporary files folder. Anyone know what could be causing explorer to shut
down and wether that file would have something to do with it??

Thanks for any help.

P.S. I am running Windows Xp Home with SP2 on a P4 with 1024 Mb Memory

Do you have IE listed in firewall-exceptions,along with other needed programs.
If not,thats the place to start,also,IE in SP2 has been updated 3X,are those
installed.
