I have the exact same problem with my Windows XP Home ver. I was about to go
out and buy the Pro ver. to see if that would fix it - won't now thanks to
you. I have tried many things to try to fix it. Repair re-install, Upgrade
re-install, removing program by program to see if it would go away, etc. All
failed to help the problem. I ran a special Virus program (www.free-av.com)
from Germany that I was told would find problems when other more popular
progs wouldn't. I finally totally erased everything - wrote "zeros" and
installed a new op sys. Everything went well putting programs back until the
very end when the problem returned. I gave up at that point and am searching
for an answer like you are. Let me know if you find a solution and I will
you if I do. Thanks!

Dear Jay:
After spending much time plowing through all the messages about "runtime
errors" I discovered the one that really helped me - I was using a program
named "Free Download Manager" that was discovered to cause the problems we
are experiencing. I removed it and the problem was solved. I don't know
what caused it to be a problem since I have been using it for sometime
without any problems but whatever happened to corrupt it and turn it into a
destructive program can happen any time so I will not use it any longer. If
you do a search on "explorer - runtime errors" in the TechNet group we are
using, you will find many references to this program causing this error.
Hope this helps you like it has me! Good Luck!

I wrote you a long note about where to find an answer and then discovered
that it was you when I went back to check the source. You have been a
welcome source to the solution I needed. Thanks again!

I just used your reply to Jay about the explorer.exe crashing on file open -
that uninstalling Free Download Manager solved the problem. Thank you for the
tip.
