There's one particular folder under "My Music" that when I try to open it I get "Windows Explorer has enountered a problem and needs to close." etc. So it closes and automatically restarts. Ive tried a number of things so far, searching for similar issues and trying peoples suggestions for them but its still doing it. Is there a way to get around this without having to delete all the music in that folder? I've scanned the folder with McAfee and nothing came up.

File/folder may be in a bad sector on the hard drive, I would try running chkdsk /r, then seeing what response is.

Start/Run...type chkdsk /r (space between k and /) and hit Enter. Type Y in response to onscreen query and hit Enter. Reboot, let command run...system will boot into XP after the command does what it can.
