Application Errors Galore

  1. Application Error in Explorer.exe

    Hello everyone,
    I have started getting pretty common "application error" crashes. The first one i noticed hapened when setting an icon for a shortcut in explorer ... explorer.exe crashes. I am now finding crashes in other programs ... vlc crashes when it exits while playing a movie, miranda sometimes crashes when exiting. I have done a windows repair and am at a loss as to why this may be hapenning. I am attaching my drwtsn log and dump files to this email.
    I am also having a problem with chkdsk on my system partition ... dont know if it is related. It gives the following two errors:
    Correcting errors in the master file table's (MFT) BITMAP attribute. Correcting errors in the Volume Bitmap.
    Every time its run, often gives other errors also. Running chkdsk /f or running chkdsk /p in recovery console doesn't fix the problem. The only way i seem to be able to avoid the errors is to boot in safe mode, or with all services disabled. I dont know if these two probelms are related.
    I have tried running memtest86 (no problems shown after 5 sweeps), and diagnostics on my main drive (Western Digital, also no problems shown).

    Would someone help me by looking at the logs or giving a suggestion?

    I've just about given up on this. Iv even tried repairing my windows install ... still the sme errors.
    Getting crashes in explorer when changing icons, and in other software (VLC for example) when exiting.
