    I just installed a new graphics card and freed up a lot of space on my C drive, but now when I right click on my desktop, to get to properties, I get an error that says Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Then my task bar and all my icons disappear then after a few seconds they come back :confused:

    I have XP and I dont remember doing any clean ups myself. I instaled the driver and did everything I was sopposed to do. If any clean ups took place it was the CD for the card that did them. Unfortunatly this is not my main concern right now because my uncle, a programer, says he will take a look at it. My main concern is my other post, Plz take a look at that one.

    Oh, the space that I freed up was just games such as warcraft.
