To clean your temp folder, recycle bin, etc..please download this free tool:
CCleaner - http://www.ccleaner.com/downloadbuilds.asp
Don't install any Toolbars, or other programs, should it ask you!Just uncheck the option of installing the Yahoo toolbar.
It will put a shortcut on your Desktop.
Click on CCleaner to start it. Then click "Run Cleaner", just use the windows tab up front by default.
Once it completes, exit CCleaner, and then click on your Start Menu in Windows and click on RUN (If on Vista, type CMD in the search box on your start menu and right click CMD.exe (command prompt) then choose "Run as Administrator".
In the command prompt, type the following command:
chkdsk /f c:
The "c:" is your windows installation drive. This is usually c:, but if your's is different, you'll want to change it accordingly in the command above.
What the command above does is schedules a disk check/repair the next time the computer boots.
Now, reboot your computer and try running stuff again and see if explorer still crashes.
Hope this helps If not, let me know and we'll figure it out
