windows explorer is shutting down

Every time I try and enter my user account folder windows explorer shuts down and then restarts. Can anyone out there offer me a fix. I have tried CClaener, turned the UAC off and ran Agent ransack, all none of these fixes seem to work. I am running Visa Home Premium on a Sony Vaio AR41E, please help as its driving me nuts!!!!!!

Try the system file checker from an elevated Command Prompt:
Click Start > All Programs > Accessories and right-click Command Prompt, then ‘Run as Administrator’. Type sfc /scannow (note the space) and press Enter. This may take some time and you may have to put the Vista DVD in the drive.

Thanks for the help, will give it a go. However I din`ent get a Vista DVD with my Vaio, will thisa make a differance?

I always install my operating systems so I'm not familiar with preinstalled systems.

In preinstalled versions of XP it can be run so I see no reason why it doesn't in Vista, try it.
