Windows 7: Windows 7 64 bit Explorer.exe keeps crashing & restarting

Windows 7 64 bit Explorer.exe keeps crashing & restarting

Hello,

My Windows Explorer keeps crashing and restarting. When I checked the Event Log, it has apparently been doing this randomly since I had the software installed (replacing my Windows XP) 10 months ago. However, it is happening more frequently now. For the most part, the errors all refer to a 'timeout' when waiting for a response from different services. Latest error:

A timeout (30000 milliseconds) was reached while waiting for a transaction response from the SftService service.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Pat

Thanks, but I think the problem has to do with the timeout process - as I get the error for other services as well: lmhosts service, Netman service, ShellHWDetection service, etc.
