I have Samba 3.0.14a installed on a computer running FreeBSD version 5.4. 
I also have two other computers that are running WinXP with all updates, 
service packs, etc.

This is a very simple configuration with no domains, etc.

Now, when I open "My Network Places" and hover the mouse over an icon for 
the Samba network or one of its shares, within a few moments Internet 
Explorer will crash. This is the message:

Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. I then get 
the option of sending a report to Microsoft about the problem. The Dr. 
Watson program does record the incident, but I lack the skill to be able 
to decipher the error file.

Has anyone else experienced this sort of behavior or have a suggestion as 
to how I might correct it?
