why does explorer.exe keep restarting

  toz666 14:28 01 Sep 2003

ok ive had this problem for a long time and on all os, iam now on a virtually clean instal of win xp, and every so often ill get the error pop up window apearing, as usual saying "explorer.exe has found a proble and will restart"
now when it does it flashes the desktop for a few secs and returns, closing any open windows , and more annoyingly shuts down a few of my running taskbar apps, like firewall , pop up stopper, avg.

but like ive said this has happened to me now virtually everytime on all recent os's.

ive asked many a forum for an answer to this 1 , and again i hope ill one day track it down.
thx all in advance.

Only way of tracking this down is to use event viewer. Whats it say?
