My Windows Explorer constantly crashes with the main crash message "Windows Explorer has enountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." I can still use Explorer to an extent when this message pops up as long as I don't select one of the choices ('Send Error Report' or 'Don't Send'). I would like to know from where this problem derived and how to fix it.

Thanks,

I don't know how this problem might have started. Do you still have your XP disc? If so, do the Windows Repair and see if that fixes your problem.

It just sort of started one day. Also, sometimes when it crashes this Doctor[something] comes up as a process out of nowhere and crashes with it. Maybe they're interconnected. I don't have my XP disc anymore, so I'm wondering if I can't fix the problem can I reinstall Windows Explorer somehow (without the disc)?

Also, I'm not sure if this is of any help but in the Error Report Contents it says "The Following files will be included in this error report: C:\DOCUME~1\TIMOTH~1.TIM\LOCALS~1\Temp\d05b_appcompat.txt"

Next time you get that error message click DON'T SEND button. Now on the left hand side their's a blue link that says view technical source or choose microsoft privacy click on view technical source (or similar to that) this brings up a seperate dialog box with all code that made windows explore to generate this error message, scroll down to the bottom and look at what files caused this application to generate this error.
