Enduring Problem Regarding Explorer

by djwest / April 6, 2005 3:22 AM PDT

Hey guys, I installed a couple of new applications yesterday and it seems like my computer is not thrilled about it.
I'm not sure if that's the origin of the problem but it seems like that every few minutes I get that error window in which it says error occurred with the windows explorer and it forces me to shut it down or something.
Long story short, I get that 'report error' window in which it tells me that an error occurred, when I submit my error(or don't submit) it just make all of my dekstop items disappear.
It does not delete them but it forces me to restart my computer every few minutes.
What can I do? I'm really lost.

I look forward to seeing your reply.
