Win 7 64 bit - windows explorer keeps crashing

My windows explorer keeps crashing, especially when i need to work/access folders.

Don't want to do a system restore,as i have alot of info and programs.

I also don't have any installation disk that came with the laptop, i emigrated and left my stuff overseas.

Hello Joe , have you tried running the sfc/scannow command. This will fix all corrupted files/folders, if that doesn't work , let me know. It will take time for the scan to finish so just be patient.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Do you get any error messages? Or does it just say "not responding" or hangs or what exactly?

If you do get error messages please post them.

I thought he meant going with chrome and its file manager. It is ambiguous though. I guess they should have kept the internet stuff as "navigator" and the file stuff as "explorer" since it takes quite a bit of exploration to find your files.

Yes it is my Windows Explorer and not Internet Explorer.

No, I don't get any errors, sometimes the system hangs (not responding) and Windows Explorer crashes, really annoying.

Have you tried downloading Malwarebytes?, maybe a threat is causing your Computer to crash and does Windows Explore crash only when you right click the file and then open?
