Well I'm really new to computers. I have windows XP SP2 and lately I've been getting this message "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close." Note this happens when i am conducting a search for files on my local drives. Then when ever i use my Super anti-spyware it encounters a problem, my Reg cure also and my windows live messenger so i had to get the msn messenger 7.5 and that works fine. Everything else on my computer seems to be working fine but i really cant detail the problem. sending reports does nothing and i went back to last good configuration and still the same problem. i have no idea what to do any help will be much appreciated.

Right...! you need to update Virus Definition engine of your virus scan to detect more malfuction in your PC.
Also scan for windows files protection from:
start>run> type this: sfc /scannow and press enter..then it will scan for windows corrupted files and informs you to insert xp's disc to restore files.
After all try Ccleaner and check for crap remained in system, here its link to download:
