Hi! I have browsed this website for a solution for my explorer crash but hadn't found anyhing that works! My explorer crashes after I try to browse my user/ folders like Downloads etc. and my explorer crashes 90% of the time. It's getting really annoying because I cannot put my schoolwork into my documents and my photos to the pictures folder.

I have tried:
Perform a clean boot.
Note: If the computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may prevent you from following these steps. It is strongly recommend that you do not use the System Configuration utility to modify the advanced boot options on the computer unless a Microsoft support engineer directs you to do this. Doing this may make the computer unusable. 1. Log on to the computer by using an account that has administrator rights.
2. Click Start, type "msconfig" in the Start Search box or Run command, and then press enter to start the System Configuration Utility. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click continue.
3. On the General tab, click Selective Startup, and then click to clear the Load startup items check box. (The Use Original Boot.ini check box is unavailable.)
4. On the Services tab, click to select the Hide all Microsoft services check box, and then click Disable all.
Note Following this step lets Microsoft services continue to run. These services include Networking, Plug and Play, Event Logging, Error Reporting, and other services. If you disable these services, you may permanently delete all restore points. Do not do this if you want to use the System Restore utility together with existing restore points.
5. Click ok, and then click restart.
1. Click start and type "regedit" on search bar (on RUN command)
2. Navigate to following key
3. Now delete all string key except default inside "Disabled Sessions"
1. Click start and type "gpedit.msc" search bar or on run command
2. Now navigate to
Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Internet Communication Management, and then click Internet Communication settings
3. Locate "Turn off Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program", double click or right click to edit
4. Click on "Enable". Apply and ok, now close gpedit windows.
Disable Windows Error Reporting
Run Cmd as Admin
reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting" /v CorporateWERServer /t REG_SZ /d "NoServer"
Disable --> CmdLineContextMenu Class | SecuROM context menu | SONY ADAC Austria
copy explorer.exe from Windows folder
and COPY (not cut) to Windows/System32 folder. If you are having problems copying cause explorer keeps crashing, use organize button to copy and paste.
