I get the following error on xp pro with all updates.

When I click on Control Panel I receive an error message saying "Windows
Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close." I am offered to
"Please tell Microsoft about this problem" Send or Don't Send

I know of seeing a post asking this same question a few months ago, so
if anyone has a solution . Would be greatly appreciated

More about : control panel open

To repair all system files, go to Start/Run, and type: SFC /SCANNOW

I have the same problem. I tried what you said, but it doesn't help. It
doesn't happen all the time, but when it does, I also get a pop up about Dr.
Watson Postmortem Debugger.. It says that it has encountered a problem and
needs to close. Sometimes my computer freezes at that point, but if I go
into task manager it says that Control Panel has stopped. I'll stop the
task, and the pc is fine.

Other than that, my pc is working like a charm. :-(

It's either a corrupt driver, or a virus/spyware issue. Or, you might try a Repair setup.\
