If so, so might try doing a Windows system restore to an earlier date.

I guess. I have the PC set for automatic updates...
How can I go back a few?

(Windows Explorer didn't crash)
I then uninstalled all the Windows XP Updates back to when it was working fine - and now "My Pictures" works, but "My Videos" still crashes as soon as you click on it.
When you hover over "My Videos" on the main menu though, and the thumnails of a few movies come up, I can click on one of those and they work fine. It only crashes when I actually select "My Videos"...
Any ideas? Anyone? Anyone?
Hang on! Scratch that! "My Pictures" just crashed again! Back to square one...
(But it was fine a minute ago!!)

If you're sure you've eliminated the possibilty that it's being caused by an installed program then all that's left is a hardware problem - which seems really unlikely given that it's recent behaviour combined with your description of what's happening.
So you've used sysytm restore - have you tried MCE reloaded ? - it'll mean you're back to the beginning again but it's worth a try.
If that fails - all that's left is a fresh install - but if I were you I'd invest in Norton Ghost first - then at least if you screw things up you're only ever 5 minutes away from a perfect install.

I removed all the updates via Control Panel's "Add or Remove Programs"...
How do I do a System Restore?
(If that doesn't work, I'll try MCE Reloaded...

Go to your Windows start menu and then your control panel.
Switch to category view (sidebar menu) and select Performance and Maintenance.
You should then see System Restore in the left menu - select "Restore my computer to a previous time" and select a date that pre-dates when your problems began.
It'll take a few minutes and will involve a reboot - but if your problem has been caused by something you've done, it should fix it.
If not - MCE reloaded and last of all - new install!
Good luck - let us know how you get on

Off to try Reloaded...
Man, I hope this works...
