  1. I recently installed windows Vista onto my computer, Now I installed it on a second Paprtition so that I can run a dual Boot system due to a lot of program I use don't work with Vista.

    Now What I've noticed Lately Is If I go into My Documents or Any of the Paprtitions after a Few Second Explorer will Crash, Now I've updated Both XP and Vista with all the Updates.

    I just don't understand what was happening, it didn't start till after a couple days of Vista being installed.

    Why do some users write "paprtition" and then continue with writing partition after that. What does "paprtition" mean, is it just a spelling mistake?

    Anyway, your question was a little not clear, so I've decided to reword it !

    I have Windows Vista recently installed on a 2nd Partition, on a dual boot system (Xp/Vista)
    When opening any folder in Windows Vista (only) I get explorer.exe crash (details supplied)

    Is that correct?

    If so, have you installed all the Vista drivers and chipsets correctly?

    Vista uses much more system resource than Xp, and therefore this fault can be related to your Ram as well. You may need to run Memtest (for 7 passes)

    This fault can also be due to Spyware (or Virus) I would suggest that you run a Spyware scan through it as well.

    You could try a Repair on Vista. But as it's a new install, you may just want to re-install it clean. Following this Guide

    Also please check C:\windows\minidump for any MiniDumps that you can attach (note: we're talking the Vista Windows folder)

    I think the clean install of Vista may be the best approach, seeming it's only two days old
