It appears to me the problem is in Shell32 with perhaps a stack overflow. I've never seen a stack trace this large but towards the top, you'll see "unaligned" and size heap crash. The resulting address is invalid in the following instruction. The problem is, I don't know how to fix it.

Code:

Thanks for the stack trace analysis, Ken.
Code:

In post #8 the OP said no customization is applied. But still uxtheme is there in stack trace.

Such a thing is a 100% catch by the SFC /scannow command. SFC always cure all the uxtheme related issues. If failed, it reports on the issue. But in post #11 he replied

Yes, no violations as I had said before.
Unfortunately the before is not there in the thread, too.

Either he made something himself that is not suiting in his system, or ....sorry to say, our suggestions are nor being taken. Or both.

I don't have a single application that was made by me that runs persistently. Here are my SFC results to make things easier:



Also this is the "before":

Hi Visual Studio.

You may follow this guide: Troubleshooting Explorer.exe Crashing Issues
Already tried all that, it changed nothing.
^Here I said that I tried everything in that thread and it didn't change anything or help fix the problem.

I am not asking you about virus.

I am asking about file types, coz sometimes some corrupt codec also can cause explorer crashes. Also you havent mentioned anything about the results of SFC. You also havent said anything about the customizations etc in the two of your posts, too.
I would've mentioned it if it presented an error, which it didn't. No customizations have been applied.

That is an interesting screenshot, sfc should be run elevated.



SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker





I get an error if it isn't run as admin, even in the admin account.

I didn't screenshot the window title, mine has "Administrator: Command Prompt" on it too, you can't tell if it's admin or not unless you see the window title (besides it defaulting to system32 for the cwd) which I didn't screenshot because it's common sense to run these utilities as admin.

Yes you can.

Elevated Command Prompt

I wasn't looking at the top, I was looking at the path in the cmd window.

Admin level = C:Windows\system32

Standard level = C:\Users\John

Common sense or not, you can clearly see it is not being run as admin.

Then how did it have proper permissions to check the file system?

Either way I do it, it gives me the same results.

Also pretty sure I mentioned that:
