    This past week I have been plagued by Explorer.EXE deciding out of nowhere to crash. Here is the data for Dr.Watson.

    The application, C:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXE, generated an application error The error occurred on 09/23/2003 @ 05:40:56.312 The exception generated was c0000005 at address 73FE4172 (<nosymbols>)

    This is really starting to piss me off. I have already started an investigation at Windows Help and Support and I'm waiting for their response. I don't know what to do, clean install of Windows XP AGAIN, with just SP1a??

    Virus scan didn't find anything?


    Sounds like high time for a reformat. There are soooo many things that could cause that to happen, and none of them are easy to identify.

    Norton AV 2002 didn't pick up everything. My router is blocking a billion port calls every day. I just got back from my school and it's been six hours since my last reset. I un-installed 3 updates from my computer this morning, one about an RPC exploit, something about a shell exploit and an HTML converter patch. If I don't get any errors in the next two days I'll call it safe. If I do, clean install of Windows XP with only SP1a.

    Edit: This install of Windows XP is brand new. I've written zero to all my drives about 2 times this weekend with a WD utility.
