Windows 7: Explorer crashes seemingly randomly.

Windows 7 Ultimate x32
Explorer crashes seemingly randomly.

Hey all!

Windows 7 x32 Ultimate retail, installed during new component install 8 months ago.
Running an AMD x4 on an Asus motherboard, about 8 months old now with 4 GB ram.

Windows explorer will crash randomly, sometimes just browsing a folder, or viewing pictures, or zipping up a debug file to send here (ironically)

It will mention no antivirus installed, as I recently uninstalled it thinking it might help. I have run full antivirus scans, malwarebyte scans and am proficient with autoruns and general troubleshooting techniques. Any help is appreciated.

I was told that it was just installed with a theme, a quick google search for that shows it is more than a theme (grrr) . Sorry for the trouble, thank you for the quick response.
