When I log on to my computer I'm getting a "Explorer problem" a message saying that it needs to shut down. I get the option to send the error to Microsoft, or not. At this point the only thing that’s showing in the background is just my start menu and toolbar on the bottom, no icons/shortcuts show up on the desktop. If I choose either option (send or not), the message goes away and my desktop goes blank except for my wallpaper (no start menu or toolbar). I can do ctrl alt del and see the process’s running etc.., and I noticed that there are 4 Explorer.exe ‘s running at the same time. That does not seem right to me at all, I thought just one is suppose to run? Any idea's of why this message is coming up right after the computer boots? I'm running XP Pro, and yes I keep it updated.
Other things I’ve noticed. On start up (boot process) I saw a message for one of my drives in red saying that it has an error on it. I go into the RAID configuration and it only gives me a “Clear Disk” and “Delete Disk” option. I don’t want to do either cause I have a lot on info on the disk (75gb). I have 2 serial ATA’s (75gb x 2) configured as one hard drive. I also have smaller (40gb) hard drive, and this is what my OS is loaded on (this is not the one that has the error on it). Thought I would list this problem to just incase it has something to do with the explorer problem.
Any help would much appreciated. Thanks a head of time!
