This problem has been plaguing me on and off for the last few months.
It isn't just limited to my laptop but to other computers I have used.
Basically I work with alot of video files of different sizes and most days (but not always!) i'll open the folder with the video files in and BANG this happens -

Windows explorer has encountered an error and needs to close.

AppName: explorer.exe AppVer:6.0.2900.2180 ModName: unknown

ModVer: Offset: 050f3206

then it proceeds to the error reporting dialogue - which goes flawlessly.
Just mention that the computer doesn't crash during the error reporting process when I hit don't send error report (it did once or twice b4).

Eventually DrWatson crashes aswell then after this if I try to carry on working with the folders it will crash and just hang there. Have to pop into the task manager to end it.

Can somebody explain what this problem is?

Does anyone knows what is causing it?

Can it be simply fixed?

I have look elsewhere for help but come up empty!

I'm running a
Toshiba Satellite A105-S4064
1.8GHz Centrino processor
128 mb Intel intergrated graphics
512 MB ram

Thanx in advance
