Today when I was searching through my folders I got a error message that says "Error: 80". I clicked OK and windows explorer shut down.
I goggled it and got very little info, and none of it helpful.
Anyone have a clue on what I should do to correct/prevent this issue?

It is a newly repaired 5 year old Shuttle. I replaced the hard drive and optical drive with new ones. Then installed Win XP Pro (along with most of my favorite programs).
While transferring large files from an external hard drive I'd have Win Explorer error messages saying it needs to shut down. I learned that by moving the message (and not shutting Win Ex down) I could continue with the task at hand, and shut it down at the end of the session. Finally I got tired of doing that and installed XP anti spy which put the kibosh on future messages of it's type (but not the errors) - Win Ex would then shut itself down before letting me shut the computer down.
I've finished the transferring of files, and I've only had the ERROR: 80 message once.
So far not a huge issue, but I'm hoping to prevent a series of problems.
Basically all I want to know is what is a ERROR: 80?
