Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close...

Apparently the reason this might be happening is because of some bad piece of code in a IE search-hijacker.

spybot here

or

Downlaod this and run it.
AdAware

Aside from the DR. Watson error, are there any other errors in the event log?  What has chnaged recently if anything?  Definitely run suggested commands from CrazyOne.

does it put you through the whole error reporting crap? if so, send an error report and see if they have a "more information about this problem" link. often m$ will tell you what program is causing this error, if it is common enough.
