Windows Explorer crashing?

I have read others threads on similar issues, would just like some advice on the steps i can take to eliminate this problem.

My PC has been crashing at random times, windows explorer stops responding and i am forced to power down. Just not entirely sure what is causing it and how to fix it.

Things i have tried:
- sfc /scannow (no errors)
- rotating RAM sticks (still crashing)
- virus scans (computer is clean)
- memtest64 (left for 12 hours or so, no issues)
- Temperatures are good.
- Disabed non-microsoft ShellEx extensions.

Now trying:
- Just noticed my crucial m4 SSD's have different firmware


Any advice is welcome. Hopefully my system specs are viewable and you have the information needed to help me out! Appreciate it all.

I seem to recall an old post hear with a similar issue and after the Tutorial they suggested disabling all non-Microsoft extensions to see if that stops the problem. ShellExView - Shell Extension Manager For Windows was suggested to help with this process, I'm not sure if it will do the trick, but I was also having a similar experience before I decided to go through and turn off and uninstall a bunch of programs that I never used and now I'm riding free.

When everything fails, a Repair Install should work there.

Tried disabling all of the non-microsoft ShellEx extensions and am still experiencing crashes.
