Hi, I'm running XP Media Center Edition 2002 SP2 and I have had this same problem for as long as I've owned the computer (even after several fresh installs of the OS). At random, a small window will appear stating the "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close", and is followed shortly by another window that says "DrWatson Postmortem Debugger has encountered a problem and needs to close", and then all the icons on my desktop disappear. Any idea what this could be?

Download/install BlueScreenView, http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html.

Double-click BlueScreenView.exe file.

When scanning is done, Edit/Select All...then File/Save Selected Items. Save the report as BSOD.txt.

Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content and paste it into your next reply.
