Windows Explorer crashes no matter what I try to do. Error message: Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close.

Which version of IE are you using? If it is the IE7...well, let's just say there's been a little trouble with that.

it was created by microsoft what do you exspect (sorry i had to say that)

to the point:

try and think back to see if any new programs you have installed might have caused the problem if soo uninstall

or is it when you do a certain thing like open windows media player for example

ive found little things like that work

Try running the System File Checker, it will check if any of your system files have been corrupted or overwritten and replace them if they have.
