  1. Hi;
    Few days back I started having the error "Windows Explorer stopped working". The desktop restarts and works usual. I thought that it was a virus. So I downloaded another Anti-virus (Avira) that can run along with McAfee. I made sure that I had latest updates and did a full system scan with no luck. The problem still exist and is very annoying. Can you help please.

    I got these errors from the error log:

    Internet Explorer 6.2?
    What is the rest of your hardware, and installed software?
