Hi Everyone,

How do I stop Explorer.exe from crashing everytime I attempt to use My Computer, My Documents etc... Explorer.exe closes and restarts without leaving a message. How do I force Windows XP to let me browse my files, like it does in 'SafeMode' but in normal/unrestricted mode. Panda Antivirus reports full function and no viruses.

I have heard of this problem assosiated with either spy sweeper or avg antivirus.
Not sure about panda.although you could try shutting down your anti virus and anti spyware software and see if it still happens.
