Windows 7: Windows 7 "Explorer Crash" Error

05 Aug 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64)
Windows 7 "Explorer Crash" Error

To start off, I'm using "Windows 7 RTM Ultimate x64"

The first time it happened I figured whatever, sometimes computers get Iffy but seeing as how this is happening to me at least twice a day I feel it needs to be addressed. Now at least twice a day I get a message saying my explorer has encountered an error and must restart. So I click on the "more info" arrow to see the files associated with the error and every single error always has the same files in the description.

Files that help describe the problem:


(The "***" is just my computers name blanked out.)

Before anyone asks, yes I have a second hard-drive in my computer and yes I have tried reinstalling windows a couple of times with and without the second hard-drive connected. The error happens regardless. So if anyone has any information that can help please feel free to share
