Explorer.exe application error memory could not be read

This thing has been bothering me despite having reinstalled Windows XP (with SP3). Here are some solutions from the internet:

This did NOT fix the problem.

I think Carbonite is causing problems after re-installation. It wants to keep restoring stuff when all I want it to do is to backup. I'm going to uninstall it.
