I'm using xp pro sp 2. its a fairly new install. Lately I have been getting a lot of Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime errors in c:\windows\explorer.exe. Mostly while using iexploer. After clicking the okay button on the error message window it usually crashes my start menu bar along the bottom.

Starting today... I can no longer use the built in windows ftp program (accessing an ftp server from the explorer) it gives me that same runtime error right after I enter my user name password..???
any suggestions?

As a side note... when I first boot windows. If I attempt to access the ftp server from explorer; it works fine. But if I run pretty much anything netscape for example... it will not work again until a reboot.

You may have a courpted file so try booting up in safe moder i.e F8 during bootup

If not then run Ad-Aware and search for a virus

Siggyman may be correct. Try and update your Visual C++ Libraries. According to Microsoft you will need these libraries to run any program written in C++. Which if I am not mistaken Windows is.
