That link is to Microsoft's Crash analysis page.Explorer is corrupt, probably caused by Virus or Malware. Try booting in safe mode with networking. if u can open webpage from there. ..then, go here
and Download Spybot S&D. run a full scan. This is should catch any malware that corrupted windows explorer.

if, that doenst work, do a System restore to a previous day when you knew it was working fine.

The path for that is
Start menu, All programs, Accessories, system tools, system restore.

good luck,

Recreate the Show Desktop icon on the Quick Launch toolbar


To re-create the Show Desktop icon on the Quick Launch
toolbar, follow these steps....

1. Use any text editor (such as Notepad) to create a
file with the following lines:
[Shell]
Command=2
IconFile=explorer.exe,3
[Taskbar]
Command=ToggleDesktop
2. Save the new file as a file named Show Desktop.scf
in the WindowsSystem or WinntSystem32 folder. Note
that Notepad may automatically append a .txt extension
to the file name. Remove this extension if Notepad
adds it. These steps do not work if the file is named
Show Desktop.scf.txt.
3. Quit Notepad.
4. Using Windows Explorer or My Computer, right-click
the Show Desktop .scf file, and then click Create
Shortcut.
5. Copy the new shortcut to the appropriate folder. In
Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows 98, copy the shortcut
to this folder: WindowsApplication DataMicrosoftInternet

In Microsoft Windows NT or Microsoft Windows 2000,
copy the shortcut to this folder: WinNTSystem32
In Microsoft Windows XP, copy the shortcut to the

Desk top background loads properly but my icons are very slow to load, or don't load at all


This will work if the computer hesitates while windows "refreshes" all of the Desktop Icons. This is because the ShellIconCache file has reached it's limit of 500 entries. To stop this, run Regedit and open the key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer and create a new string value. Name it MaxCachedIcons and then set the value to 2000

I want to down load realtec hd driver


In task manager click on "new task" and then type "explorer.exe" into the dialogue box. If everything boots up then its somhow been removed from your startup process, most likly a virus.

Type "msconfig" into the run dialogue box (start>run) [start menu search in vista] and check your startup options.

To manually re-add explorer to the startup follow these instuctions carefully.

Type regedit into the run dialogue box (start>run) [start menu search in vista] navigate the folders on the left to Winlogon

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/MICROSOFT/WINDOWS NT/CURRENT VERSION/WinLogon
look for Shell double click it and in the value data box delete whats there and put this:
explorer.exe

Windows explorer


Both of the utilities you have listed have good reviews, but
there are three possibilities:

1) You have somehow damaged the windows shell,
explorer.exe, it's libraries or its registry entries,
while you ware cleaning your system.

In this case you will need to either re-install windows,
or at least repair windows from the install disks and
re-apply service pack 3.


2) You may still have a rogue program or a root-kit running
somewhere. Check the task manager (ctrl-alt-del),
shut down all unnecessary tasks. Then got to:

Control Panel ==> Administrative Tools ==>
Services,

and stop all unnecessary services, but do NOT
disable them, unless you know what you are doing.

they will re-start when you re-boot.


Download Mike Lin's startup monitor, and disable
all unwanted programs from starting up ==> reboot

Once you have trimmed your system to the bare minimum,

see if the problem persists.

You may also scan your system with rootkit detectors,
such as 'black light" and rootkit revealer by Mark Russinovich


3) You have a large corrupt media or picture file in your root
directory, and windows explorer is hanging while trying to
generate a preview thumbnail.

Disable: shmedia.dll = Show media
and shimgvw.dll = Show Image View


START ===> RUN
type:

regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll
regsvr32 /u shimgvw.dll


To re-enable pre-view, enter the previous commands
without the /u switch.
