XP crashes every time I open a folder

I've finally had enough.

This has been going on for months and I want to take a sledgehammer to my computer.

I can surf internet fine. I can load and save documents fine.

*EVERY* time I open a folder, Windows crashes.

Tonight, it's been giving me a new message - "To help protect your computer, Windows has closed this program" - any time I open a folder.

Before I was getting some sort of message about Dr. Watson's Post-Mortem.

I can't access any folders. Nor can I use Windows Media Player.

Pretty much the only way I can access content is to open VLC Media Player and access it through there - which includes moving stuff between folders, which is a giant pain in the rear end.

I really need some help with this, as it's pretty much unmanageable now.

Is it just one specific folders?
Containing video files by any chance?
