People,

I've always preferred to use Windows Explorer as my directory of choice, but it doesn't seem to work so hot in XP [I'm talking here about the main program . . . as opposed to Start Menu Explorer options (e.g., My Documents, My Computer, etc.)]

But those Start Menu Explorer options seem to be crash proof, as opposed to Windows Explorer itself, which is crash prone.

Below is a list of Application Errors, as taken from my Dr. Watson Log File:

Application exception occurred:
App: C:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXE (pid=1216)
When: 9/15/2003 @ 20:11:56.218
Exception number: c0000005 (access violation)

Application exception occurred:
App: C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe (pid=2072)
When: 9/16/2003 @ 18:02:20.250
Exception number: 80000007

Application exception occurred:
App: C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe (pid=2368)
When: 9/18/2003 @ 22:33:28.984
Exception number: c0000005 (access violation)

My questions are:

What's the difference between Windows Explorer itself; & the Start Menu Explorer options . . .

. . . why do the Start Menu Explorer options work better . . .

. . . & how do I keep Windows Explorer itself from crashing?

Thanks much,
