    Have you tried turning it off?

    Right click My Computer > properties > advanced tab > Performance > DEP tab.

    If you have Hardware DEP, don't know.

    I have hardware DEP enabled (for the last 12 months), but have never come across problems with "windows explorer".
    You can add this as an "exception" in DEP, but you may have some corruption/problem elsewhere.

    EDIT
    does this happen when you explore? if yes, have you tried re-installing the disk (HD) drivers?
