Explorer.exe crashes and restarts - WinXP Pro

    I have Windows XP Pro, Service Pack 1, and my explorer.exe keeps crashing
    and restarting. This is annoying, since I lose half my taskbar icons
    everytime this happens. Are there any known fixes for this behavior?

    I do not get an error message when this happens, but I get a message in
    Event Viewer that says "The shell stopped unexpectedly and Explorer.exe was
    restarted."

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.
