I'm using XP, service pack 3, ie 8...everythings up to date, scanned, cleaned and fine tuned as well as I can do it! I receive the same error every time I right click a file or folder and here it is:
"Windows Explorer
Windows Explorer encountered a problem and needs to close...."
More info:
AppName:explorer.exe AppVer:6.0.2900.5512 ModName:kernel32.dll
ModVer:5.1.2600.5781 Offset:0000d00d

Thanks

The Shell ExView is very impressive and saved my hard drives life! I can't thank you enough for taking the time to help me! The culprit was a shell extension in PowerDesk of a 2008 vintage...go figure! Computers are a fantastic tool...thanks for your expertise!!

I am just in after a night out celebrating a friend at works birthday, came online and got your email, so nice that you took the time to say thanks

Glad your problem is sorted.
