Windows keeps restarting for no reason.

Everytime I try to use the Recycle Bin, Windows Media Player, or try to go into my system properties it says "Windows Explorer has stopped woking" and "Windows Explorer is restarting". Its starting to get really annoying, I have experienced this problem the last few days.

Hi MellowSwank,

When did the issue start?

Was there any changes made prior to this issue?

In addition to the fixes ICit2lol suggested, you can also try these steps, as well.

Step 1: Check if the issue repeats in safe mode.

Step 2: If the issue does not happen in safe mode, then check in clean boot. “How to perform Clean Boot”

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

Note: Please ensure that the computer is set to start as usual by following the step 7 from the article.

Step 3: Disable automatic Restart.

a. Start/Run (Press Windows+R tab from your keyboard to open Run prompt) and type SYSDM.CPL in the box after that click on Ok.

b. Under System Properties Click on Advanced tab.

c. Under Startup and Recovery click on Settings.

d. Under System Failure, Uncheck the option Automatically restart.

e. Click on Ok, Apply, Ok.

f. Please restart your computer and check your problem.

Nothing worked not even performing a clean boot. In safe mode I had no problems but when I use my administrative account or even the guest account it does not work properly. I still get "windows explorer has stopped working" and so on.

Does it do this with all accounts. Try making another Admin account and giving that a go.
