I am using WinXp SP2.
I probably have a problem with the file system.
explorer.exe tend to crush occasionally.
So I performed chkdsk on the system boot.
It found problems, fix them and restart.
I did it 3 times in a row, and each time it kept finding problems.
(The logs are attached below)
I believe formatting the disk will solve this for good, but this is not an option to me, as installing the os and all of my programs again is way beyond my reach.

So are there any tools to diagnose and deal with this problem?

Thanks in advance!

Here are the logs:

Errors of that type are commonly caused by a failing drive or bad memory. Testing the drive can push it over the edge, so be sure that everything is backed up. You may even want to make an image of the whole drive so that it can be restored to a new drive if that becomes necessary.

Free Disk Imaging Tools:

EASEUS Todo Backup
O&O DiskImage Express
Macrium Reflect
PING (Partimage Is Not Ghost) (Free alternative to Ghost with more features)
Paragon Drive Backup Express
Drive Image XML
G4U - Ghost For Unix (Platform-independent, floppy or CD)
DiscWizard (For Seagate or Maxtor drives - contains reduced version of Acronis)


Start by testing memory.

MemScope (Floppy and CD images.)
Roadkil's RAM Test
Microsoft Memory Test (floppy or CD ISO image)
Memtest86

If you have enough memory sticks, you can test them by removing one at a time and see if the problem disappears.

If you are running Vista, tap F8 on boot and choose the memory diagnostic, or if you can boot up, go to Start > Search and type:

mdsched.exe

Choose to run a memory diagnostic on next boot. Or, you can boot from the DVD and run it from there.

------------------------------------------------------------------

Run chkdsk /r on the drive after testing memory if memory tests OK. Though not definitive, it will tell you at the end if it found bad clusters and is a less intensive workout for the drive than some other tests.
