I remembered having issues with Windows Explorer randomly crashing without any reason. I also tried to reinstall Windows but it again gave the same errors even on fresh installs. So ultimately, I had to change and burn Windows 7 on a diff DVD and then install Windows all over again which finally got rid of this issue. Its strange but that worked at least for me.

For your issue, try running an anti virus scan to check for infections. Also open cmd prompt with admin rights and run sfc /scannow to fix any errors with the file system.
