I'm battling a similar problem with a Win 2k box.  My box's problem is SP4.
(Beware anyone thinking of dl'g it!!).

Try disabling the ebay toolbar and see if that remedies the problem.

  Hi all
     Ladies complaint, when she clicks on desktop icons the computer
freezes,
  hard reboot is the only way out.
      Things that I have done, updated and ran antivirus software, adaware,
  spybot, swat-it, did find alot of spyware (and 1 trojan file) and removed
all
  except her e-bay toolbar, she uses this toolbar all the time. (Spybot and
Adaware
  did complain that e-bay toolbar is spyware.) Deleted win.swp file,
index.dat
  file, shellicon file.
     Results; nothing worked. Could the ebay toolbar be causing this? Anyone
use the ebay toolbar or have heard of any problems with it? Any other ideas?
  TIA
  De
