I am currently having some problems with one of my machines. It seems that as of a few days ago EVERY time I try and open Windows Explorer or IE it seems to give me a fatal error saying: Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Please tell Microsoft about this problem. I am using Windows XP with everything updated. I can't remember the last thing I installed, I believe it was a printer at the beginning of the semester, but have been able to use it up until a few days ago. I have searched M$ knowledge base, but couldn't find an exact solution, was hoping one of you knew something...... If you need anything else post back and I'll let you know.
