Windows 7: Experiencing "Not responding" in random frequency, Explorer.

24 Oct 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Experiencing "Not responding" in random frequency, Explorer.

Hey there, hope someone can help me out.

I recently got this Asus K73S laptop, and after updating everything, it works just great.
Though recently it "crashed", or atleast the Windows Explorer did - it "stopped responding". Ever since that happened the first time, it's become more and more common for it to stop responding, both while browsing through the explorer and while copying files etc.

It doesn't hang, it just thinks that it's done for, and restarts the entire explorer session. While it's trying it's hardest to find a solution to the problem, i can freely browse and continue copying, but then ofc when it fails to find a solution, it just restarts itself.

I'm not talking about the internet browser, but the windows explorer.exe.
I have updated all updates available, including framework 4.0.
I have no 3rd party system software installed afaik, only Asus utilities, for shortcuts etc.

Final comment, i've read a general thread somewhere inhere about dump files. I don't know if i've done it right but it can be fetched here ->

Thanks in advance
