About 3 times in the space of an hour explorer has crashed, it usally happend when ie and wmp are open at the same time, i am surfing the net while listening to music, xp is meant to be multitasking and explorer can't seem to handle more then one application open at the same time, there is nothing of intrest in the event viewer and I have NIS 2003 and NAV 2003 all up to date, no viruses, as well as ad aware, spybot and spywareblaster all up to date no nasties on my system, this hasn't happened this frequent before, i have winows xp home, should I be very worried, is it my hard disk on it's last legs, hope not it's only two years old, i think it's a maxtor 40Gb, hope someone can help, or reassure me that everything ok, regards, Rhuddlan.
