Windows 7: Continuesly explorer crash when browsing (c0000005)

You could try the Fix It tool for Diagnose and repair Windows File and Folder Problems automatically. I know it is not your problem, but it is explorer related and may fix how explorer operates.



Did that Fix It help?

Nice to see you check back!

Unfortunately it didn't help a second, so i ended up using Explorer through Notepad++ untill the day of today.
Which is a pain in the ass tbh, but i've really tried a lot of things now and it doesn't seem to go resolve the problem.

Maybe you learned up something about this issue in the mean while?

Try Default File Type Associations - Restore and see if it helps.

If that does not work, I strongly advice Fix a corrupted user profile (it is for Vista, but the same steps work for 7).

If i could only open up all those reg's downloaded now. Explorer crashes the first second I go into the Downloads Folder,
and through Notepad I can't click open (even through the context-menu). It's thinking I want to edit or merge it, having no option to open it.

Hold on.

I dragged them to desktop and added them to registry, although with no luck since explorer crashed again just now, with testing. Ima go on and try the Corrupted UA

i've done that before (not on this laptop though) but i'm gonna need to reimport a lot of files is my guess, such as ftp accounts, firefox data and application settings?

Thanks for the replies, anyways:

Made a new Profile, Which worked great. repeating 'worked'.
I've tried to copy the files from this account to a new account through a new account.
I couldnt get into the Folders of this Profile and the new Profile, it first gave the Error (as usual)
to press Continue to gain full access over the folders, after I did that the Navigation Bar just turned into it's Progress state and didn't cross the [X] (Stop button in Explorer Navbar).
After cancelling that, It started to have the same Explorer.exe Crash, again, on a New profile..
So now I guess that profile is corrupted just due to trying to access my current profile?

Microsoft what the.

It's still likely a bad codec of some kind.

This is one of the worst non-virus or non-hardware cuased problems. Finding and fixing the /specific/ codec can take some deep spelinking into your codec registrations. Copying single files of various types into a folder and finding out exactly which one(s) are causing it, then disabling the codecs one by one till it stops.

Unfortuantely all the old programs that worked on XP for doing this no longer work on Windows 7 and I have not been able to find one that does yet

If it's a codec problem it will follow every user on the machine as it affects them all.

Given the amount of time spent looking for it already, it may be time to just cut lost time and reinstall windows.

Are you still having these explorer crashes, or did you do as suggested and re-install Windows?

Good to see people are watching back,
never got a mail about a reply, so thought it'd be dead by now.

However I still got the explorer crashes, and since today / yesterday
I've got some strange BSOD's when watching flash movies or something, even when im not tho - but it seemed like it happened a few times when pausing a video ; Sound froze - Laptop froze - BSOD and direct reboot.

Guess this couldnt get worse anyway
