Windows Explorer crashes on notebook after Vista SP1 upgrade.

Last friday I've upgraded my Vista Home Premium 32bit (on my HP Pavilion
notebook) to Vista SP1.
And at first everything seemed to be working well, until the notebook went
to sleep. After I made the notebook return from sleep mode the TaskBar got
stuck and after a minute the Windows Explorer crashed.

After multiple resets, that done nothing but waste my time (since the
Explorer kept on crashing without any reason when I tried to use the
TaskBar), I noticed that before the TaskBar gets stuck Windows
Firewall/Defender pops-up a bubble near the clock stating that my computer is
not protected (Since I made it stop asking me idiotic questions when I try to
execute an application or configure a setting). Once I disabled the Firewall
completely it seemed to stabalize, but I decided to disable the auto sleep
after a specified period of time option, just in case.

Any idea on how can I solve this issue?

Thank you.


P.S:

Allow me to patronize for a bit. Microsoft stated that Vista SP1 will
resolve issues reported by the users, but so far all I've managed to find
on-line are cries for help on both Pre-SP1 and after SP1.

And the only good thing I noticed from this upgrade is that now Vista
recognizes all 4GB of RAM.

Also, SP1 is not really fast.

I recommend to anyway who has this problem to restore to the last point
before SP1.
