windows explorer has encountered an error

it is not isolated to any one

Start, Run, type in

sfc /scannow

and click OK. You may be asked for your Windows CD.

Have you tried looking in the event viewer via the control panel>admin tools>event viewer>then click on application log and system log and there you will get a better idea as to what is happening with the pc, look for RED error messages or YELLOW exclamation mark messages, and post back.

Also when the error box appears telling you that windows explorer hes encountered a problem, try clicking on the blue more info link.
