My Windows Explorer crashes when I move a file and after moving do anything(exit WE,hit the back button...).When it crashes the Windows icons dissapear,WE turns off,cursor stays fine but other open applications just continue working after the crash then after some time icons reappear and everything turns normal.I tried everything I could find on internet(defragmenting,cleaning registry...)Help me!!! Thank you in advance.

If you have the XP CD
Click Start, Run and type "sfc /scannow" without the colons and note space between sfc and /.
You may well be asked to insert the XP CD.
This is system file checker and will not report a result, unless a file is corrupted and cannot be replaced.

The open My computer, right click the hard drive carrying windows, usually C, click Properties, click Tools, click Error Checking, click
check now, click to check the box automatically fix file system errors, click Start, click to agree check on restart.
DO NOT INTERRUPT or use the computer during the check.
Post back when you have done that please.

Is it still crashing and what was the result of the chkdsk.
Go Control Panel, Administrative functions, event viewer, application, scroll down to Winlogon, double click and check results of chkdsk.
Is it shown as finding errors.

It is still crashing.Chkdsk removed some indexes I think and everything else is OK.In event viewer I see lots of Winlogon informations and everytime I click on one it mentions a shell.I tried some programs for removing shells and it didn't help,it's still crashing.My biggest problem now is that my computer is slower every second.I think that it's the problem in shells.I need your reply A.S.A.P.Thank you.

Go start, programs, accessories, system tools, system restore
Restore My Computer to an earlier time.
Pick a date before this problem and follow instructions.
