    Hi
    I have recently had a lot of pc problems with processes using 100% cpu and runtime errors. I took my pc to my local repair shop and it ended up that they completely wiped my pc and reinstalled windows xp home.
    I use the mozy online backup service so thankfully most of my files are safe and I have restored them.

    Everytime I try to go into "my pictures" where I store all my photographs, I get the error message "To help protect your computer, windows have closed this program. Name: Windows explorer"

    Is there anything I can do to prevent this happening?

    Thanks

    Ian
