As far as I can tell from this, Explorer throws an error #c0000005 at you. I've searched for this error at both Symantec (CrashGard) and Microsoft Knowledge base, but it remains vague to me. I think it's some sort of "I'm stopping this process but I don't know why" error.
Anyway, to fix it, first, I'd try running windows update, and install all critical packages. If that doesn't work, I usually just reinstall windows - I know that's rather drastic, but I always have something like a ghostimage ready.

I found crashguard to cause more problems than it fixed, try removing just the symatec software (not anti-virus just the other stuff) and see if that helps.
You haven't mentioned what flavour of m$ your using, try Win98SE if possible as thats the most stable non-NT m$ OS I've used.

I'd agree with Jamie there, any experience i've had with software of that ilk has been bad.
Windows is well known for its shutdown problems - have a look here - http://support.microsoft.com/default...;EN-GB;q202633

Yes. In all my experience with Crashguard, it has caused more problems than it has fixed, just as they have said above.

In my experiance with CrashGuard I have found that it crashed windows more than it actually helped it. I agree with jcdux get rid of it and you will get better results

I have yet to find a version of windows that allways shuts down happily, I used to just accept it but then I got Linux, there are a couple of things that I found helpful.
-The lightstep project (replace the windows desktop)
-Deleting autoexec.bat and config.sys - this stops DOS being useful but did make the computer start up and shut down really fast
Hope this helps!
