Everytime I open windows explorer it closes immediately, generating an
error report to send to Microsoft. I've checked Microsoft website for a fix,
but no luck.
Anyone have a fix for this?

start > run, type
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.

Gerry,
I opened win explorer tonight and the same thing happens. I then ran eventvwr and there are only
two application errors listed with red X's. Nothing for system errors.
They are as follows: 1. Fault Bucket 127241048
2. Faulting application explorer.exe Vers. 6.0.2900.2180 faulting module kernel32.dll
vers. 5.1.2600.2180 fault address 0x0001eb33

I've installed Microsofts' IE7 thinking this might fix the problem, but it doesn't.

Gerry,

I have also ran sfc /scannow and still have problem with Win Explorer, closing immediately
after opening it.
Any ideas?

Go to command prompt and type chkdsk /r and make sure you WIndows CD is in the drive, this will attempt to scan and repair any missing or damaged files.
