My windows explorer has bodged on my Windows 2000 computer.
Whenever i try to open a folder, such as My computer, the following pops up.

Program Error
Explorer.exe has generated errors and will be closed by windows You will need to restart the prgram.

An error log is being created.

This may be a result of me deleting something, or maybe due to a crazy decision to install Kazaa and all the baloney that comes with it.

Ahh, yes. Kazaa is not the best thing to download. Actually, you can get badly infected from certain files you download in Kazaa. :tazz:

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log as a new topic in the Hijack This forum. It will get a better response there from the people most qualified to analyze logs.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide. Also see this post.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.
