dyoak,

please be more specific !
What do you do right before this error occurs ?
(any action could be helpful: starting/closing a program etc.)

A "small" excerpt from Microsoft's KB accessible through this link:

Best regards

Please tell us the vitals your system, ie; cpu make and model,
How much ram , pci, type of mouse, video adapter, network, what
kind of Network Adapter, significant software and anything you can
think of. Operating System and version. Updates, Service Packs.
Do you have or did have IE4X and ACTIVE DESKTOP? Busmastering?
Latest installations of programs.
There are many variables and we could spend weeks trying to solve
something while I don't know what we're working with. :)

I am going to take a guess that somehow the Explorer.exe file has been copied to the root folder (usually C:\) and now there are two copies of this file (It should only be in folder
C:\Windows\) and what you need to do is rename it to whatever you want then reboot, and now you can delete it.
