Windows Explorer Keeps Crashing

Hello all,

I have a really annoying problem. Every 4th or 5th time I
close a Windows Explorer window using the red 'X' box in the top right
corner, I get an error message stating that "Windows Explorer has encountered
a problem and needs to shut down". Has anyone else had this problem and if so
how did you rectify it?? It's not causing major problems but it's just a pain
in the neck.




Cheers, Boxy

Perhaps do a scan for adware might help. www.lavasoftusa.com & Spybot

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.
