Windows 7: Windows Explorer Stops working

Windows Explorer Stops working

I boot up and I can get into Computer and Control Panel just fine. After several minutes I can no longer get into them. I go into Task Manager and I see several explorer tasks backed up. I have taken a dump of them.

I have deinstalled AVG
I have deinstalled Internet Explorer 9
I have done a clean boot

I have run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor and removed products it says may cause problems.

What should I do next.

Let us see the dumps that you've made of explorer.exe If they're too large to upload here - upload them to a free file hosting service and post a link to them here.

Also, please provide us with this info even though you're not experiencing BSOD's:
