Run System Restore and choose a date before the troubles started. It is highly unlikely your %windir%\explorer.exe file is broken.
Which version of XP you are using? Pro? Home? Service pack 1 or 2? In a lot of cases, this error is caused by 3rd party shell extensions that are not functioning properly. To try and find if a 3rd party shell extension is causing your Windows Explorer to crash on certain actions, you'll need to download this utility: ShelExView (http://www.snapfiles.com/get/shellexview... It will let you view & disable shell extensions. After you downloaded & executed it, ShelExView will show all shell extensions installed on your system. You could sort the entries so that you'll have all non Microsoft shell extensions grouped together. Next, select all these non Microsoft shell extensions, and disable them. Try the sequence that would previously have resulted in Windows Explorer crashing (for example browsing a folder, or right-clicking a file). If no crash occurred, one of the shell extensions you disabled has been causing the crash. To find out which one, start enabling one shell extension at a time, each time testing to make sure you can still use Windows Explorer without it crashing, until you find the shell extension that would cause Windows Explorer to crash.

It is a corruption of one of your Registry Keys in the OS- perhaps overwritten by a screensaver or other similar application from a download. Reinstall or Repair your OS by inserting the original media from CD-ROM or DVD but to eliminate the error completely, it is best to perform a clean install after you backup your files. Good luck.

You also need anti-spyware in addition to your anti-virus. No single anti-spyware application is perfect so I recommend using at least 2 different programs. SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes are two of the best. Other free anti-spyware programs would be Spybot Search & Destroy, Adaware, AVG Anti-spyware (formally Ewido), A-squared, Spyware Terminator and SpywareBlaster. I strongly recommend using FireFox, it's a far better and safer alternative to Internet Explorer. If you add-on McAfee SiteAdvisor, it will warn you of potentially harmful sites. I also recommend CCleaner which is a free system optimization and privacy tool.
