!!!explorer crashes!!!

Hi, GOOD NEWS. After a lot of research about the explorer crashing problem, I have come accross a web site, it gives instructions to delete a registery entry. THIS HAS WORED FOR ME, I have tested my system out after deleting the entry and restarting my computer and have not had the crashing problem again If it does crash I will let you all know but fingers crossed.

Follow my instructions:

1. Click start
2. Type regedit and hit enter
3. Go into the following - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE - SOFTWARE - Microsoft - SQMClient
4. Then you should see an entry called "MachineThrottling", BACKUP YOUR REGISTERY (file, Export etc...) and DELETE that entry.
5. Close the Registery Program
6. Open My computer right click on the hard drive that Windows 7 is installed on
7. Click Tools Tab
8. Click check now (make sure the top box is selected - fix file system errors) and OK
9. Restart your computer

This has worked for my system and hopefully it will work on yours. If you need help just leave a reply and I will try my best to help out

Hi guys,
I've searched for at least half a month to solve a fu**ing right click explorer crashes that were constantly happening into my Windows 7 (heard that Windows Vista got too). All you have to do is download this program called Shell Ex View and disable all No-Microsoft content shells. To do like that just open the program, arrange all the shells in the "Company" column and select all the others third party shells. Just right click on them and click on disable. Done. Enjoy!

Explorer crashes Fixed

BashirSabeel's fix didn't work for me. I don't have that registry entry.
But if you have an nForce chip set go to nVidia and let their website check your board for an update. Don't use other update methods. There was an nForce update on nVidia that involves the stroreage driver. After installing the new driver the crashes stopped. I no longer could make it crash.

Hope this is of help.

Just registered to thank the above poster and confirm that the above solution worked. My problem was caused by switching to ATI GPU from NVidia one, and being a lazyass to uninstall drivers proper way, so I had nview installed in shell.

Thanks, frostee.
