I need a bit of help, here, and it would be much less costly for me if I could find that help here. Often during multitasking, my explorer will crash (bringing up the typical XP SEND and DON'T SEND buttons) forcing me to reload explorer in the task manager.

Also, I'm not sure if this is related at all, but during some games, my computer will reboot for no reason (well, there's most likely a reason, but I've no clue). Sometimes it happens as soon as I load into a level in the game (Brood War), or sometimes it will happen randomly in the middle of a game (Alice, Postal 2, Splinter Cell: PT).

Seriously, I need some help.

Please?

I have a NVidia Geforce FX5200, I just updated the drivers and continue to have the rebooting during games. I've taken a screenshot of the error details I get once the computer restarts.

try to dl and reinstall IE6
goto: http://download.micr...US/ie6setup.exe

this is a small setup that will dl the full IE installation to your HD, so u can install it from your HD and not from the internet as usual.

No, it's not internet explorer that's crashing (I use Firefox =D), it's explorer. Windows explorer.

It's mostly the rebooting during games that I'm worried about. See above screenshot for error details after computer restarts.

Please, I'd really appreciate some help.
