Re: Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close

Which OS are you running?
Do you have any unusually large files on your desktop that may be causing a delay in refreshing your desktop?
You could also try disabling any unnecessary start up items in MSConfig.
Have you installed any new software that loads on start-up?

Re: Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close

This occurs because of virus. Your explorer.exe is corrupted. You can make it run back by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del. Click on File > Run and then type explorer.exe. It will restore your desktop. But if it is freezing continuously then you will have two options to fix this. First you can run System Restore. If this works then ok or else you have to format your system entirely to get rid of this problem.
