    How often does this happen? Is it always related to the number of messages? And what exactly is the "explorer" error?

    The bin could be corrupt and deleting it in DOS is the best fix for that. If I know your OS version, I'll give you directions.

    When you get the error you will see a "details" tab. You need to click on that and copy the first two lines which specify the error modules and the address. All the rest can be ignored. The disappearing icons are par for the course. You have to reboot to get them back.

    To purge the recylebin completly, click Start>Shutdown>Restart in MS-DOS mode. At the c:\>windows prompt enter each bold line exactly:

    deltree c:\recycled
    exit


    when you enter the "deltree" you will get a confirmation prompt. Only if the target is correct (recycled), enter 'y' to confirm

    You may need to save a file to the bin and reboot again, but this isn't usually necessary.

    No, when you reboot after typing exit your recycle bin will be back. You may have to save a file to it if the icon isn't right in Windows Explorer.

    However, you may have other problems and it would be a good idea to post a StartupList, using the application available from the site below. Unzip, run it and copy/paste the results here.

    xxkhbxx, your actual "startups" look just fine. The only real thing you need to do is to go to Internet Options>Settings>View Objects where the ActiveX objects are found for Downloaded Program Files. There you have a lot of junk. You should right click on each and remove any not supplied by a major known vendor such as Microsoft, Macromedia, Adobe, McAfee, etc. Even those could be removed without ill affect, as you will only be prompted for a new download when they are required. Otherwise you should be very careful about accepting download prompts from sites which do not have reliable reputations.

    No, but just to re-iterate, some of the ActiveX objects can be dangerous ([{A45F39DC-3608-4237-8F0E-139F1BC49464}]
    CODEBASE = http://www.greatplugin.com/diallerfiles/007030.exe)

    Note the "dialer" in that and the exe extension -- it can remotely launch an unknown program. You could get your standard modem connection replaced by a dialer to a long distance line when visiting a site that looks for that. And I wouldn't want your phone bill if that happens.

    There are others like "WildTangent", which though not dangerous are meant to track browsing and I don't know what else. I haven't reviewed them all, but I'd certainly get rid of these and any that look associated with 'x' related sites.
