Is this any folder or just a particular folder? Does it happen everytime or just once in awhile?

Does anyone else have a problem with Windows explorer stopping and not working at times? I also wanted to ask how I could let the builders of Windows 7 know about this problem? I am using build 7100 and don't know if there is an update yet. Thanks! -Scott
