Windows 7: Explorer.exe keeps crashing system

Explorer.exe keeps crashing system

This is the 2nd time explorer.exe keeps crashing, the 1st time it happened computer lasted a few months before it happened and then I wiped the SSD and did a re-install.

Now it's only been a few weeks since I reinstalled windows and it's crashed again.

What can be causing this, is it a bad SSD?

I've tried running/opening explorer.exe through task manager but it crashes right away. I've attached a couple of screen shots of the error I get when trying to run explorer.exe through task manager.

What antivirus program are you running? Sometimes c0000005 is a virus/malware problem.

I was running security essentials and pretty sure it was active.

Is there a solution other than reinstalling windows again? . I don't have easy access to the disk at the moment so I'd really love to be able to fix this somehow.

Does anyone have any solutions at all?

My desktop isn't viewable since Explorer.exe isn't running.

How can I save & run file as administrator another way?

From a working computer, download (free) Malwarebytes' Antimalware to a clean (not infected flashdrive)
https://www.malwarebytes.org/antimalware/

Scan the 'sick' computer.

Windows crashed AGAIN for 3rd time, now different reason.

So windows has crashed for the 3rd time in last 2 months, it's only been a week since the last install. Can't remember the error issue the 2nd time, but now it has a different reason.

Any idea what this is? Seems it's happening with auto updates maybe?

Having a hard time getting my bios settings to save, every time I try to change boot settings so it boots from Windows Cd first to try and repair it, but it just tolls right into Windows. Tried like 10 times. I'm so fed up with this system.

Seems my threads were merged & photo of problem was lost.

Here is my current problem, anyone have an idea what my problems been? They're different, but perhaps from Windows updates?
