Jonathan_King - Thank you. How do you all like MSE?
I love MSE. It is my personal favorite, and hasn't let a virus through yet. Very fast as well, barely influences my boot times.

Good. Refresh my memory, what did you do to fix it?

I have used AVG 9, and it developed a memory leak, so that's when I switched to MSE (and got hooked).

The problem hasn't come up again even after almost 3 days of uptime.

I kept searching and couldn't find anything like this. If it happens again I'll run hijack this and see if I can figure it out.

In order to fix it I just restarted my computer. I believe that last times it happened I was shift+deleting large folders from my 1.5TB Seagate. The drive freezes and lags a lot so Idk if that would have caused any explorer errors but regardless it hasn't happened since.

Thanks for all the help you guys. I'm definitely going to stick around on the boards.
