My computer suffers the following problem, which requires that the computer be restarted:

1. I open a folder on the desktop;
2. Click "Edit" at the top of the active window;
3. The system locks up (cursor turns to an "hourglass" and remains an
hourglass until the computer is restarted);
4. Utilizing the Ctrl-Alt-Del sequence task manager, I kill the window;
5. The "hourglass" cursor remains;
6. An error message appears, and here is the text from that message-

DrWatson Postmortem Debugger
Error Signature:

EventType: BEX
P1: drwtson32.exe
P2: 5.1.2600.0
P3: 3b7d84a2
P4: dbghelp.dll
P5: 5.1.2600.2180
P6: 4110969d
P7: 0001295d
P8: c0000409
P9: 00000000

7. After I close the "DrWatson" error dialog box, I get another error message
which states something to the effect that-

WinExplorer.exe has encountered a problem that requires that the
computer be restarted

8. I have to shut down the computer using the "on/off" switch due to the
fact that the "hourglass" cursor remains.

Computer Equipment/Software:

Dell Inspiron 8100 866mZ Notebook
Windows XP SP2 with all patches/updates

Any help would be appreciated.
