dwwin.exe error

Specs: Windows XP, P4 1.7 256

I'm getting a dwwin.exe error when my computer starts up. I click OK and it goes away but if I try to browse any files using Windows Explorer or My Computer, the dwwin.exe error comes up every time and my screen goes blank for a second then all my icons reappear.
Just wondering if anybody knows what to do about this?

dwwin.exe is Microsoft Application Error Reporting. You may have a problem with a background program starting at Startup.

May want to look at items on the Startup tab in msconfig.
Run, then type

does or means, and any recommendation as to if you should close the process:

One way to check to see if it is a Startup program is to see if Explorer works in Windows Safe-Mode.
