Accessing share folder on win7 machine crashing xp

I asked this question recently, then realized I may have asked in the wrong forum. Here is my problem : trying to access folders shared on a win 7 machine from a win xp machine is causing windows explorer to crash. The issue is intermittent and I can't figure out at all what is causing it. So far I haven't gotten an answer from anyone that has helped resolve the problem. Please help, I'm getting frantically desperate to fix it at this point
