After installing Windows 7 x64 SP1 Problem

So I just installed windows 7 SP1 and now I am unable to open any folders without encountering the error "Windows Explorer has stopped working," which shuts everything down. I can't even open my control panel or windows updates folder.

Any solutions?

I would try this before doing anything else
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

sounds like the update didn't quite finish up.

I did that. It still didn't help. Any other suggestions?

Well there is the option of rolling back to a restore point before the update, then going over the great post linked above to help ensure it goes right when you try again.

I'll probably have to roll back my computer since I can't do the majority of the things listed above, which requires me to open a folder. Is there nothing I can do without rolling it back?

if you can manage to use them I would try directory , drive , and folder from here Default File Type Associations - Restore

That was my last gasp for a simpler solution.
Sorry I couldn't help you out on this one. I'll drop by if anything else comes to mind.
