Which Windows OS does it occur on?

On several of my XP boxs Windows Search crashes Explorer reliably while
scanning inside a .zip file somewhere deep in folders. (not using
winzip, just the unzip supplied by M$). Nothing to do with TSVN either
which was not installed.
If I tempt fate and hope the search gets to the target file before a
crash it's prudent to open a command box and Task Manager first so I
kill off the errant explorer and start a new explorer from the command line.
Ah, Windows you can rely on it to be unreliable, and of course they
never provided a means to send to M$ an explorer crash report.
