Windows 7: Windows Explorer constantly crashing

Windows Explorer constantly crashing

almost every time I open windows explorer, it
crashes...

I read a post earlier that recommended
opening command prompt and typing in:
sfc /sannow

Did that and the results are:
"Verification 94% complete.
Windows Resource Protection could not
perform the requested operation"

I will appreciate some suggestions on
how to fix this issue.

Thanks Karen

Make sure you run it at least 3 times as per this.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Let us know the results.

The Thumbnails option worked for me for now, but I think it is unfair to disable a function just so that the program works properly. Attached is my CBS log as of this morning. It should show all the scans I've made the past few days.

(I had to link it as it was too large to attach through the site's uploader.)

I was in a hurry when I posted this and forgot to ask if there is anything else to do to fix this?

It is quite hard to get Folder Options up long enough to select the Always show thumbnails as icons option so attain a DMP file. Took me ten minutes to select it after I tested it once I did a massive Windows Update.
