Everything Explorer Related is Closing
Alright, this is a really strange problem. I'm running Windows XP and now every time I click an explorer related application (ex. internet explorer, my computer, recycling bin, documents, etc etc), it will open for a brief moment and then everything except the desktop will suddenly disappear (including the start menu & icons; so ALL that's left is my wallpaper image), then it will refresh and the icons/start menu will reload.
This makes it so I cannot access any explorer related applications which is really a problem. I don't care about IE, but things like my computer and documents are essential for me...
