Windows explorer crashing on cloned hard drive

I have bought laptop with ore installed windows 7 premium 64 bit. It came with a 320 gig hard drive. I have upgraded to a 1 tb and using seagate disk wizard I cloned the 320 hd to the 1 tb. But ever since then the 1 tb hard drive boots fine to windows but the explorer keeps crashing and restarting several times. I have tried running an sfc scan and presently running a chkdsk scan. If there is any help on what I can do to sort this out would be much appreciated

Hi The chef and welcome to Seven Forums. Try running the sfc 2 more times but reboot first and after each run.

Its always recommended to run it at least 3 times with reboots.

Thank you Britton30. I have managed to stop windows explorer crashing . After doing research discovered the 2 files that couldn't be replaced by sfc were linked to pre installed Asus software .
Will post the thread when back on laptop . It seams to effect Asus
