Windows 7: explorer.exe crashes every few days when typing into search bar

explorer.exe crashes every few days when typing into search bar

Sometimes, every few days or so if I go to type into the search bar, explorer stops responding.

Faulting Application : Explorer.exe
Faulting application module : Shell32.dll
Exception code : 0xc0000005

Other than that, explorer works fine. The last time it crashed was about 10 days ago according to the reliability monitor, and it crashd today. Sfcscannow does not show any violations. I can only faintly remember having explorer issues after an nvidia driver update, but that was about 2ish months ago.

I have downloaded the new drivers but it has not made a difference. About shell32.dll, does that relate to the context menu? Im confused as to why this happens, only if I go to the start menu search, every few days to a week it may out of a blue moon it just may suddenly stop responding, and explorer would have to restart.
