problem with windows explorer and powerdesk pro

When I try to rightclick on a file in either program I get the following : "windows explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close." the only way I can work on the file is to fire up Ubanto which works Ok. Any ideas please before I throw the bloody computer in the skip!!!

To update my problem further the error message contains the following explorer.exe Appver 6.0.2900.5512. Mod name kernel32.dll mod version 5.1.2600.5512. offset 0000 cffd. I,ve searched Microsoft but with no luck. All help appreciated!

I have just discovered the answer. It seems that Norton 360 interferes with Powerdesk pro. Avanquest have issued a patch to correct this fault. and things have returned to normal
