    Hi tazmania1230,
    Can you post the exact message? Is it:Explorer has performed an illegal operation and will be shutdown?

    Try following the procedure explained in this link. Usually the files that cause that error are Internet Explorer related.

    You can also try reinstalling Windows from the System CD. If you want to do that enter the command e:\setup , after using a startup disk and reaching the a:\> prompt
