I put Windows XP Pro 32-bit on a budget computer that I just built for a friend.
Everything installed fine and dandy, no problems whatsoever.
When I install the video card driver and restart the computer:
Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
Send Error Report | Don't Send
I click don't send, as always, and Windows Explorer shuts down, taskbar and all. About 3 seconds later, it will reappear again followed by the same error message. I system restored back to before the driver and all was well, then I downloaded the driver from a different source. Same problem.
Ok so I've checked that I now have all the Windows Updates as well ast the latest drivers for my motherboard.
The problem still persists. Do you guys know where I could find an earlier version of my graphics card driver? I'll try that next and if that doesnt work I'm going to have to try to repair XP/reinstall.
