    Here are some more details:

    The problem started after performing the latest update
    on Win2k from Microsoft.

    The crash happens after I open up more than
    one instance of Win Explorer - 2 or more
    processes with Win Exp at the same time.

    When I open up only a single process, after about
    20 - 30 seconds, I notice that the color of the
    title bar changes - indicating that perhaps
    another process has taken focus. Which process
    that is I have no clue.

    In Task Manager, the system idle process is taking
    up about 99% of the CPU time - so there isn’t another
    process hogging time.
