Here's the message in full
Explorer.exe application error
The instruction at "0x77f580db" referenced memory at "0x006a002e". The memory could not be "written"

Any ideas as to a possible cause? I'm completely in the dark and would appreciate someideas about where to start - why should explorer attempt to write to memory that it shouldn't?
