Hi all,

Explorer seems to be crashing on me every time I log in to my computer. It just asks me to send an error report to Microsoft, and then it just restarts itself and I can go ahead to use my computer. Not that big of a deal but it's pretty annoying.

Two errors show up in my Application event viewer. Here's what my Event Viewer says:

Faulting application explorer.exe, version 6.0.2900.5512, faulting module unknown, version, fault address 0x016f0778.

Have you done a series of checks for malware?

Are you current with critical updates installed on the system?

Have you checked Event Viewer for clues...once you get a successful boot into XP?
