Problems with Picture Folders

For those scions of computer knowledge, I present this query:

I am an amateur photographer (although Wal-Mart has made me sign copyright release forms for some of my images, hehe) and as such, I have hundreds of pictures divied up amongt several organized folders. My problem is this. On occasion, when I access certain folders, an error message will pop-up and Explorer will shut down. This seems to happen as the thumbnails are loading (or, when thumbnail view is turned off, when the little Photoshop icon loads with each file). This even happens inside the file browser in Photoshop and when I'm just looking at file lists from the Start > My Pictures > etc. menus.

Granted, I don't think it's a tech spec problem. I'm running a P4 with over a gig of RAM, so I would hope my computer could handle it.

I get the error message: "Explorer.EXE - Application Error"
The instruction at "0x7c93426d" referenced memory at "0x742e3323". The memory could not be "read".

If I try and click CANCEL to debug, even the debugger freaks out. Any idea what is causing this and how I can fix it?

EDIT: Problem solved. I recently upgraded to Photoshop CS2 from Photoshop 7, but did not delete 7. Whence deleted, all the pictures reverted to opening in Windows Picture and Fax Viewer. Mysteriously, this solved the problem. I just have to "Open with..." and handle it that way for Photoshop. Thanks for the help!
