Default Windows Explorer error at logon

As soon as I turn on my machine, I get that windows error message saying "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close."

The error signature reads as follows:
AppName: explorer.exe AppVer: 6.0.2900.2180 ModName: 45ad9fca.dll
ModVer: Offset: 00019350

It is also including a txt file when you send it located at C:\Documents and Settings\04070021\Local Settings\Temp\13a0_appcompat.txt

This happens every time I boot up. I would really like to stop it but don't know where to begin. Another problem, this is a brand new machine so I wouldn't be opposed to starting from scratch and reinstalling everything but it is not an actual computer. It is an ASUS R2H IMPC (basically a hand held tablet. It runs Windows XP and acts as a normal computer, but there is no CD drive to connect to it to boot from to reformat the drive and reinstall Windows XP.

Any ideas?
