Is it possible to un install Windows Explorer?
Nearly every time I right click on my Desktop it crashes.
I am up to date on WinXP updates and I run AVG, Spybot and a couple of others. My latest crash had the following explanation from my event viewer.

I would really appreciate some help.

You need to run SFC.exe
If you do not have a retail Windows CD, Pay attention to the second post where the i386 folder is discussed

The file launcher.dll...is not really identified, seems to be associated with various games.

It's what seems to have caused the 2d error message you posted (which should be the first error). I see no indication of what game it might be.

The second error message is just Dr. Watson (a Windows utility) noting the crash caused by the formentioned file.
