Try running a memory test to check that your RAM is working fine,(google memtest).
If the test is OK it may just be a third party application that is causing the error, such as Spyware programs, browser helpers(google/yahoo toolbar) etc. Uninstall the culprit and you should be fine.

Re: error

Hi Netha j,
i have included some info below.
Please read more on the Microsoft web site.
Please give you computer a full virus check (without connection to the web).
You might want to down load (while it is free)the Microsoft anti-virus.
I hope all goes well.

explorer.exe is the Windows Program Manager or Windows Explorer. It manages the Windows Graphical Shell including the Start menu, taskbar, desktop, and File Manager. By removing this process the graphical interface for Windows will disappear. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.

Note: explorer.exe is a process which is registered as a trojan. This Trojan allows attackers to access your computer from remote locations, stealing passwords, Internet banking and personal data. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system.

Determining whether explorer.exe is a virus or a legitimate Windows process depends on the directory location it executes or runs from.
