Dr. Watson Postmortem Debugger

I have a problem. Every time I try to open "My Computer" or explorer an error message comes up stating that Dr. Watson Postmortem Debugger has failed and asks whether or not I would like to send an error report. No matter what I do after this my computer fails and I must close the process through Windows Task Manager in order to get back to normal.
So, I would like to know what I can possible do in order to get rid of this problem. I have read every other post on various websites regarding this topic but nothing has worked. I must admit that I am not a programmer or anything but I am rather competent at computer use in general. If anyone knows how to get rid of this problem it would be greatly appreciated because I need to be able to access "My Computer". Thank you very much!

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 recommendations in the guide.

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.

No one has responded to my HiJack This log yet, so I have reproduced it below:
