i've been having this strange error: explorer.exe often shuts down or crashes each time i exit skype from the task bar icon; everything from the window disappears... though the programs still work, i can't see anything unless i press ctrl + alt + del. I keep typing "run new task" then explorer.exe. but this gets kinda irritating and tedious.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Hello Tengal.

First of all you will want to reintall Skype. This may solve the probem quickly and efficiently.

If after the reinstall this problem still occurs, please look in your Event Logs for errors relating to Skype or explorer.exe. If found, copy the whole error(s) (not the binary code though) back in your next reply. You can find a guide on using the Event Logs here.

With Regards,
The Panda
