I have an issue on my pc that I cant find any help on it at Microsoft Support. I am afraid I can not copy and past any error messages I have received because it is just not cooperating.

When trying to open Internet explorer or "My computer" it get an error-
"Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. Sorry for the inconvience" When I click or reprot details

AppName:explorer.exe ModName oel32.dll
ModVer5.1.2600.2595 Code Oxc0000005

Any ideas? I know this is generic-but this is really all the info the computer will give me.

I had a problem for months with windows explorer and it shutting down whenever I used a right click. Then Dr. Watson would start up and freeze so I had to shut that down in task manager to free up the computer. I came here and did the scans but it didn't help. I had it boiled down to either bad ram, over heating, a bad program I had installed or just reinstall windows xp and start over. On reviewing many Cnet posts I was directed to ShellExView and it solved my problem .


Hope it helps,
