Problem modifying folders with XP

Hi,

I have been experiencing problems with trying to rename, create or delete folders in XP Home. Whenever I tried to do this, explorer would simply crash on me. I found a way to resolve it by removing SP2, and all works well, however if I proceed to reinstall SP2, the same problem happens again. Anybody have any suggestions on how to overcome this or is it just a glitch with SP2? Thanks.

After following Microsoft's advice, try an install of SP2 in Safe Mode.
