Currently running Win XP Pro on my Dell XPS system. Yesterday I was moving a large number of files from my Tivo to my PC so I could burn them to DVD. Ever since then when I try and access the "My Videos" folder (where all these files are located), Windows Explorer crashes/hangs...giving me the std Windows error message (Windows has encountered a problem...). To close it I have to use Task Manager.

Any ideas on why I cannot access these folders now?

Thanks in advance...

What are the details of the error message?
Does this only occur when accessing My Videos? Have you tried accessing the other "My Xxxx" folders?
Try running SFC.EXE /SCANNOW from the Run dialog: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/43051/how-to-use-sfcexe-to-repair-system-files/
