    So, my Windows Explorer on a Vista-OS TOSHIBA laptop has shut down a couple of times recently, like, for no apparent reason; here's the log of the most recent incident, if anyone could tell me what it means or how the information could help. :)

    It looks like Explorer (the thing that actually runs Windows) had an error and shut down. That's probably not what you're looking for but that's all I really gathered from it.

    wmp.dll is something to do with Windows Media Player, I think.

    Looks like maybe WMP had some kind of error and caused a bunch of other things to go haywire and shut down.

    Thanks. Yeah, I saw that .dll listed but I wasn't sure if I could label it as the cause of the problem ...

    Looks like something with windows media player crashed explorer. Do you use windows media player as your main player? If so, consider switching to something else and see if that resolves it. If not, look into completely removing it, as there might be conflicting issues with explorer.
