Win2k explorer crashes opening image folders

Specs: Windows 2000, 3GG dual core 64 bit/ 3GB Ram
For some reason over the past two days, I cannot access images to edit or upload to web sites etc. When ever I try to open an image folder explorer crashes. I tried a third party file browser and that also crashes. If I try to open or save from Photoshop, it crashes. If I try to browse to the folder to upload an image via FileZilla FTP that crashes as soon as I touch the image folders.

I have defraged, run spyware, MS Malware removal tool etc. No luck. This has caused my work to grind to a stand still because unless I can edit and upload images I can't work on web sites.

( I can do some work booted in Linux but Pshop does not function in Wine )

Typically there is no error message, it just crashes.

DrWatson log is nothing but Greek to me.

c0000005 access violation

Then over a meg of dumped code to long to post here.

Any ideas?

Done that....more confused than before. The DrWatson log does not specify any application. Says App (PID-144) but a search for that brings up everything except that so I still don't know what causes this.

This is a sudden new problem and no new programs have been installed up to that time. I did since install a couple more programs to try to scan system for problems but no help.

Note: I moved a copy of the directory I needed to work on to a different drive and don't have that issue there. But many /image directories on the troubled location cause the same problem. I open then and explorer crashes.

I copy moved to an external USB backup drive has the same problem. Explorer crashes when I try to open the image directory. Other folders don't seem to be affected.
