    Hey there,

    I've come home to my computer a couple of times to see the following popup:

    "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library"
    Runtime error!
    Program: C:\Windows\explorer.exe
    abnormal program termination

    Can anyone help me out with what is wrong? I've done a virus scan on my computer already that has turned up nothing.

    thanks in advance
