Another idea is to run complete hard drive error checking:

Start>Run, type in chkdsk /r and click ok. Note the space between the K and the R. On the black window that appears type Y and press enter. Restart the computer and the error checking will proceed as XP starts.

I'll try this Seth, but I did spend three hours yesterday using XPs tools to check the Hard disk thoroughly and it passed all the tests.

Wolfemole, I'd like to thank you, I havent checked it out yet, but I did install a new printer recently , and guess what it's a Kodak. Brilliant machine but more complicated than any I've had before. I'll let you know if uninstalling the add ons gets rid of the problems. Many thanks.

Seth, I'll have to go back and look them up, but I found them on the Help system, they seemed pretty thorough and actually checked the hard disk I think Lineally, Medially etc.. I hope I have that right, about seven checks in all. this was after I had done a scandisk and defrag.
'cos I was a bit worried.
bridget,

Seth, It''s a PC doctor Diagnostic which checks all the hardware, I asked for a hard disk check, and have since made a diagnostice bootable CD, which may help if it all falls down. However I have uninstaled the Kodak Software which incidentally took the printer as well. Managed to put it back on without most of the extras, mostly image editing stuff, and I'll see how I go along. Will let folks know.

Did the Chkdsk / r and when i came back it had rebooted into windows so I presume it found nothing? would it have told me if it had? You didn't specify / F to fix so think you implied it would tell me.

Also the explorer still crashes if I Access the c: directory, so I don't think it can be a Kodak fault, anyway I installed the printer onto my Vista laptop and I can access everything there without any trouble, though I must confess I haven't used the printer from the lap top which may make a difference.

The laptop and Vista are very new to me and I am treating both with kid gloves.
Cn't think of anything else , except that I removed Magix Audio cleaning lab a few weeks ago, could I have done something wrong then. I only wanted it to transfer an old oudio file to CD.
Bridget.
PS Sorry I don't understand what is meant by the ( Hijack) instructions at the top, have had a look at the page and I wouldn't know where to start.

The F switch fixes errors in the files.
The R switch fixes errors in the files as well as the free space on the hard drive.
As such, R implies F.

The chkdsk will boot back into Window's when complete. A log is created under the heading Winlogon in the Applications section of the Event Viewer. However, that wasn't the problem but needed to be ruled out.

Check to see if you can access Explorer using Safe Mode (keep tapping F8 as the computer starts).

Following that, please post the Safe Mode results as well as a HijackThis log.

Very good Bridget.

The fact that Explorer works fine in Safe Mode means that the computer is either infected, or one of your programs that auto starts in Normal Mode is causing an issue. I would however suspect the former.

First thing to do is remove the remnants of Norton. Download and run this tool (ignore the recommended download)

http://www.majorgeeks.com/Norton_Removal_Tool_SymNRT_d4749.html

Restart the computer, download, update, and run a complete system scan with SuperAntiSpyware from www.superantispyware.com. Post back with it's log that is found in Super's Preferences>Logs.

I'm also concerned about this line:

O24 - Desktop Component 0: (no name) - file:///C:/DOCUME~1/COMPAQ~1/LOCALS~1/Temp/msoclip1/01/clip_image002.gif

Do you know what that image is? If not, run HT again and put a check on that line only. Click "Fix Checked" and restart the computer.

I'll be back in a few hours to see how things went.

hi Seth,
Did everything as you described don't know what the .gif file is but Ht deleted it after I had checked the item as instructed , downloaded and updated the super anti spam prog ,log file follows. Incidentally I tried explorer again and it still crashes but I noticed that it does it just as the folder view changes to Icon view with the first (windows) icon, and I did a screen shot and saved it as a .jpg.which I will send if you tell me how.
Bye.and thanks again.... bridget

The HijackThis log as well as the SAS log don't show any infections, so I think the issue is one of the startup programs (especially since everything is fine in Safe Mode).

Try this:

Start>Run>type in msconfig and press ok. Put a dot on selective startup and click on the startup tab. Click on Disable All, then apply>ok. Restart when prompted. You'll know you did it right as when XP starts a message will appear that you used the startup utility. Just put a check on Don't show me this message again. Does it still crash now?

Go back to msconfig and put a check on the AVG entries only.

Also, when exactly is it crashing? When you right click on the C drive and choose Explore?

To do a screenshot without specialised software Bridget just hit PrintScreen or PrtScn on your keyboard.
Nothing will appear to happen but open Paint in Accessories and press Ctrl +V
Your image will now appear.
I'm not saying this because you were unaware of how to do screenshots Bridget but for others who may be unsure.

Save it as a .jpeg file in a folder of your choice then go here to Photobucket and make an account.
Upload your picture to Photobucket and then tick the uploaded picture and the image code and copy that code back here like in the shot below.
Include the Direct Link too.

Don't forget about the Norton Removal Tool Bridget.

Thanks Wolfey.
