This morning Windows Explorer stopped working again and went to Event Viewer --> Windows Logs --> Application and got the following information:
Error 9/7/2010 4:28:15 AM Application 1002 (101)
Log Name: Application
Source: Application Hang
Date: 9/7/2010 4:28:15 AM
Event ID: 1002
Task Category: (101)
The program Explorer.EXE version 6.1.7600.16450 stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more
information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Action Center control panel.
Process ID: 6fc
Start Time: 01cb4e65f9b7c326
Termination Time: 0
Application Path: C:\Windows\Explorer.EXE

<Provider Name="Application Hang" />
<TimeCreated SystemTime="2010-09-07T08:28:15.000000000Z" />
I then went to the Action Center and got this info: Attachment 95953
Then I looked at more details: Attachment 95954
Seems the error is caused by Video Hardware. I use onboard video.
I got a screen shot of even more detail, but it so small you can not read it. It was essentially about the .dmp file, with no real help.
I then had it try to find a solution and that came back "No Solution found".
I sent the error report (where ever it goes) perhaps someone will find a solution.
I guess I will live with the problem until something is found.
