    hey, I'm having a problem with my explorer, I cant access any of the folders in "My Computer" without getting an error message from Windows and then the screen shutting down and going back to the desk-top. Everything is still there as I can view the files through different programs. Ive read other forums and there is talk about photo editors but I dont use any.
    Any help appreciated
