I do not have an answer for you, but I want to say that re-installing Windows is not the correct way to fix this.
Some conflict between the driver, and media files is causing this issue.
There is a fix for media files causing windows explorer to stop working, so there may be a known fix for media files causing the driver to stop working.
This is the fix for media files causing windows explorer to freeze
Windows XP Explorer has a 'feature' to provide a preview in the Details box on the left of the file you have selected, if it’s supported. Image files, HTML pages, video clips, MP3s, etc are all previewed (even with the folder view open).
If you have a large movie clip and it either is corrupt (ie. no index from a partial download) or it uses an unsupported codec, then Explorer tries to load the whole file. This can slow your computer a lot and prevent deleting/renaming/moving/etc the file until it’s finished.
Simply do the following:
- Click Start, then Run, type regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll and click "Ok".
- A window will pop up saying that the file has been unregistered successfully. (If you don't receive this window, or the window gives an error, then please post that in your reply.)
- Reboot your computer and see if the problem persists.

No, writing script is way over my head.
If so, could you provide the script to run?
Instead of rebooting why dont you type in the vs program in run?
That should restart the program.
Do you know how to view event logs?
Please go into the Event Viewer and see what errors occurred at the time you get this error message.
Click START-->RUN and type EVENTVWR.MSC and hit ENTER.
Look under SYSTEMS AND APPLICATIONS for items with RED X's that happened at the SAME time as your problem...List them here.

- open control panel
- select system
- select hardware
- select device manager
- right click on your graphics card
- select update driver
OR you can go to the manufacture web site and look for a more recent driver.
Updating the driver, or installing a newer driver, does not require you to uninstall the old driver first.
You can do this for the synaptic driver as well.
