System Crash in Windows Explorer or XP Search

  matt-few 09:41 27 Dec 2005

I have approx 10 small (max 30 min long dv tape) files and less than 50 digital photos on my second hard drive. Whether I use Windows Explorer to open the files or use XP Search, as soon as the files are displayed, the screen reverts back to the main desktop and the icons reappear about 10 secs later

Any ideas?

startmenu/run, type `CHKDSK >DRIVELETTER<:` to check your other drive, and same again but type `sfc /scannow` to check your system files. Do you run antivirus/antispyware software?

I have checked both drives and system files checks but it's still doing it. Any other ideas?
