Windows 7: Explorer,exe issues

Explorer,exe issues

Every time I start searching through my folders it happens continuously. Like I'm transferring files to and from my flash drives, during this time explorer has "stopped working" twice in 5 minutes, is there something wrong with Explorer.exe, or am I putting too much on it with my file surfing?

You can try to spot errors with Event Viewer.

Open the Start Menu, and type eventvwr.msc in the search box and press enter.
If prompted by UAC, then click on Yes.
In the left pane of Event Viewer, double click on Windows Logs to expand it, then right click on System and check for errors (see screenshot). If no related errors will be in System, please check Application section.

Please post description of errors occurred within the described time.

You might try uninstalling you nVIDIA driver and reinstalling it, that's what the above error is. I would recommend getting the correct driver... NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Advanced Search and save to your desktop.
Then use Phyxion.net - Driver Sweeper to remove your current driver. Then install the one you saved.

I have had the correct driver the whole time, would you still recommend reinstalling?

Yes, I would since it shows an error on your log, no harm is done by doing as I outlined.
Do you use Avast!?

I'm not having any of those issues, exe and other programs work fine. It's just during heavy file surfing through my documents, Explorer.exe "Not Responding" comes up and after it restarts it's good to go. No Avast! warning message, nothing.

This is what manages everything on your desktop, themes, icons, etc. which may be related to the nVIDIA driver. Have you tried the driver reinstall?
