I recently have been getting an error message when trying to access any of my
files in Windows Explorer and it says it has to close down Explorer. I don't
know how this happened. I want to fix it and was hoping i wouldn't have to
re-format (and lose all the files I can't access)....the error message says
something like:
explorer.exe - Application Error
The exception uknown software exception ()xc0000409) occured in the
application at location 0x77f67330.

What does this mean? Is my explorer.exe file corrupt, fried, ruined,
fixable, etc?
What can I do?

Click Start, Run and type eventvwr.msc
Select Application entry in the left pane
In the right-pane, look for the Error entry denoted by a Red X

Sort by date and track-down the entry based on what time the error exactly
occurred. Locate and double-click the entry and you'll see more information
in the resulting dialog. Click the copy button at the top and copy the whole
event and paste it to a Notepad document and save it. Post the information
here.

In the 2nd event that you posted, isn't there a module name mentioned?
