Explorer.exe hangs and crashes

I had at least 10 daily crashes and hangs of explorer.exe. Icons disappeared, My PC didn't open and the Start menu was empty.

I upgraded my Intel video card driver and all the problems were solved.

To all of you who have Dell computers with an Intel 965 Chipset video card, DON'T download the driver from Dell's website because it's outdated. Go directly to and download the latest driver for Windows 7.

Hope this helps!
