Cannot start Windows Explorer in WinXP Pro

I tried to rearrange the programs in the All Programs because it was getting a bit overflow and everytime I click the Windows Explorer in Accesories I get directed to My Documents!Any other way to open Windows Explorer because I want to arrange the programs that I have.

Looks like Windows is screwy. Download Microsoft Powertoy TweakUI utility have it find your problem by using hte repair option.
