Windows 7: Explorer.exe Crash

Explorer.exe Crash

My explorer always crashes after browsing/accessing my external hard disk (WD 1TB). It crashes even if I close the HDD window after using.

Edit: I noticed that this happens only when I open a particular folder in my external harddisk containing over 100 subfolders and over 200gb data.

I'm including the crash report dump

I've uninstalled unlocker but the problem still persists. Also, as I said earlier the crash happens only when I open a particular folder in my external hdd.

Problem Solved. ffdshow was the cause of the problem. I blacklisted explorer.exe in ffdshow and no more explorer crashes.
Thanks to zigzag3143 for the useful suggestion about unlocker.
