Start Menu problem

When I hit start button, the menu shows fine, no problem there.

First problem ... In 60% of the times it crashes on mouse move when menu is
up. It says Windows Explorer has crashed and needs to be restarted. I click
restart and taskbar disappears for a few seconds and then reappears.

Second problem ... I hit Start and the menu opens, I mouse over Control
Panel and the top icon swaps to a laptop and the sub-menu opens (I've chosen
to show it as sub-menu), I click on System inside control panel ... the
Start menu will disappear, System screen will show up, but that laptop icon
will keep floating on my desktop. To have it off, I'll have to click Start,
the menu will open, then Start again, the menu will disappear taking the
laptop icon with it. It doesn't seem to be a refresh issue though, cos the
laptop icon that remains is clickable.

Third problem ... Right after installing Vista, I chose different locations
for system folders: Favorites, Music, Video, Documents, Downloads and Games.
For each folder, I right-clicked it on Start Menu then preferences, then
location. Then I pointed it to another location NOT moving previous
contents. Ok, now, when I look at Start Menu, it shows me two items for each
location ... I see two Music folders, two Video folders, and so on. How can
I fix this?

I am running Vista Ultimate x64 + SP1, all updates applied. 4GB of RAM and C
drive is 35 GB total and 5 GB free. I don't believe there's any problem with
my install files because I have been using this same DVD for over an year,
just clean installed Vista again due to slowness of previous install ;)

Thanks in advance.

Pic 4 sorry, wasn't taken, but it was showing the RESTART Windows Explorer
pop up. Print Scren doesn't work while this box is showing.
