Hi, I'm on a WinXP SP2 computer and just recently started getting a program error where explorer is crashing. When I check the event viewer and view the details of the event, it says that the faulting module is shlwapi.dll and that the faulting application is explorer.exe. This error happens when I close an explorer window, not an IE window. It's making the computer very frustrating to use. I've run HijackThis and gotten this log as a result.

The only thing I've installed recently is the Google Desktop Search - maybe this is an outstanding bug with it? Any help would be appriciated. Thanks!
