I regularly get an Application error followed by a Windows Error Reporting event when I've started explorer multiple times to copy or move data. The running action windows stay open, thus I can easily re-open explorer again by clicking the "From" and "To" links, but it's still annoying.

The XML file mentioned in the report doesn't exist. The WER file does, and I've put it on my website. Explorer loads a lot of modules, but tells me the problem is ntdll.dll, which is one of those you can't disable...
I could, of course, start everything in 'Safe Mode', try to discover which module generates this problem and then just not use it. But this takes a lot of time to solve something that just annoys me. Often, Explorer will just work fine for hours, but when I'm having a 20+ copy/move actions, explorer itself just gives up sometimes...
So, does anyone know a quick fix?
