Windows 7: Explorer.exe keeps crashing

RE: Your observations on taskbar icons. That is interesting indeed. Try the following:

How to Reset the Notification Area Icons Cache in Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8

Run the script and wait for the prompt to reboot.

Then for good measure rebuild the icon cache as well:

How to Rebuild the Icon Cache in Windows

When you've finished you will need to reconfigure the icons that you wish to display.

Right click "Start" and choose "Properties"

On the "Taskbar" tab choose "Customise" under "Notification" area and set it to display icons in whatever way siuts you.

Tried adding the video so hopefully you will see it now!

Sorry for taking so long to reply. I've been swamped with college school work ugh. Anyways, the icon cache thing didn't make any difference so I guess my next step would be making a backup and reinstalling all the .NET framework then. But just wanted you to know I'm still here. I'll probably do that tomorrow as it's a bit late and I kinda wanna relax right now.

Well that backup program broke my bootloader which luckily I had a mac installation USB which has it's own bootloader so I could still boot Windows but hopefully I won't have to use that program again.

Sorry about that. It shouldn't break it - it just adds an entry to the boot menu but if it proved to be problematic then obviously don't use it.

I will avoid suggesting that software in future.

To be honest I think it was a problem that was only on my end. Basically I had tried to install Hackintosh on a partition of my harddrive a while ago and it didn't end up working and it messed up my bootlist so I just installed it with the bootloader that it has on it and then deleted the mac portion. I guess that program just didn't agree with the Chameleon bootloader I think it's called. I don't think it would mess up other peoples' bootloader. It just won't be a viable option for me unfortunately. Unless I can somehow fix my bootloader to work normally the way it should. But anyways what was it that I should do next? Sorry I can't remember which thing I was going to do cause there were a few things.

Thanks for letting me know about the bootloader. I'm still not convinced that it's a .NET Framework issue but as it keeps showing up in Explorer crash dumps try the steps in this post:

Explorer.exe keeps crashing

Including the disk cleanup. If you see a screen with a message like "Windows is configuring updates" and it seems to be stuck - just let it complete and do not switch off your computer.

I'd suggest downloading the required versions of .NET Framework first so that you've got them ready to install.

NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 setup:
