I have windows XP X64 installed in the primary partition of my primary HD and later I installed Ubuntu in another partition in the same hard disk.

Since then, ALWAYS, I have installed Wine in Ubuntu, when I reboot and try to boot Windows XP this has been corrupted (until I now Wine replaces explorer.exe from c:\windows directory) and Windows XP doesn't boot normally, I have to restore c:\windows\explorer.exe (at least to load it at beginining in the desktop) and my visual theme disappear in no more than 5 minutes. Also I don't know how may things had been corrupted....

What is this?
How could I fix this?
Is common knowed problem?

This is, at least a huge BUG.......
