I am having a problem with "Windows Explorer having a problem and needing to close" everytime I try to access the control panel. I reformatted my HDD and Reinstalled Windows XP w/sp 1. I only put one user (me) on the system upon installation, but after downloading and installing all available updates and also installing a few programs, I needed to add 3 more users. So before creating the other 3 accounts I created a system restore point. I then used the control panel without a glitch to get to the user accounts panel, then created the 3 users. Ever since creating them, I can no longer use the control panel. When I try, A window comes up saying "Windows Explorer.Exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. Sorry for any inconvenience." Sometimes after trying again, after that error comes a "drwatson debugger has encountered a problem" window. Everything worked fine until creating the 3 other users(all 3 are limited accounts). I am the admin. on the pc. Please explain what this glitch is and how to resolve it. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank You.
