Question

When I select a desktop icon, I get the message that Windows Explorer had
encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Once the error report is sent, and I reclick the icon, the process proceeds
as expected. Could a file be missing to cause this recurring problem?

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.
