Windows 7: Windows explorer stops working in control panel

Windows explorer stops working in control panel

Just installed windows 7 today everything seems to be going fine apart from a few usb modem driver & blue screen issues from that. I have one other strange problem If I navigate backwards and forwards a few times in control panel windows explorer stops working. That annoying box comes up and tells me it's stopped working just in case I didn't know already?

I'm just still trying to get used to the fact I have no classic view in control panel. Anyone else have this problem?

they are not patches. just test updates. i installed but didn't find any improvements. Infact, my pc performance was a bit reduced hence i uninstalled those updates.

Im sure updates named KB123456 are definitely to play.

These types of problems can be caused from sound card drivers that aren't compatible. Since you haven't filled out your system specs that makes it hard to determine from here.
