    Ive reformatted and reinstalled and it working prefect - no crashing after I changed the cable from DVI to HDMI by plugged DVI-I to VGA that work prefect -- boot up is 1024x720 with Win 7 own logo (nice look) and then 1920x1080 when Log-on screen or Welcome come up (I set LCD tv as PC instead of Just Scan) that work fine.

    On my machine, it wasn't Firefox 3.5.3, but CCleaner. CCleaner was cleaning explorer files. If you use CCleaner, make sure it isn't cleaning explorer files. Since this change, neither of my Windows 7 Pro (64bit) machines have had an explorer crash.

    I dont use CCleaner as Im still waiting for new version of Tuneup as I used the older version of 2009 that dont support Win 7 and wait for the 2010 version is coming - it good one and safe to clean, it give you to choose which one to aviod cleaning my mistake also plenty of features - the Tuneup 2009 only work in Xp and Vista and newer version 2010 will add for Windows 7 soon. Anyway have to careful with Explorer.exe and aviod cleaning this folder that may cause crashing as well.

    Windows explorer stops responding...

    I just installed Windows 7 HP 32 bit on an older computer, it seems after I installed Adobe Flash player and Adobe Reader 9 I got the same problems with right click and then explorer not responding. I did a system restore from the Windows 7 HP DVD to a few hours before I installed the Adobe flash player. Now I don't get the right click explorer not responding error. On my other computer that has the 64 bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium I still get the same error but not very often.

    Windows 7 Ultimate x64 RTM

    The problem is now fixed for me. It was one of two things. It either had to be the latest windows updates, or something to do with nvidia. I just got my 4890 yesterday and removed all the nvidia apps and drivers and now I accidentally clicked in my recycle bin and it didnt crash!

    EDIT: Spoke to soon sort of. I can now right click in the recycle bin window, but if i click on just the desktop icon, explorer crashes.

    I've been there before TechN9Ne1730...

    Gotta love that false sense of security! Yay, it's fixed, OH.

    Maybe it is a Windows Update, would explain a lot.

    that what I wonder about Windows update or even with nivdia driver for motherboard or graphic card that may have cause problems - I wait until next graphic card or motherboard driver version when it release cos both were older date before W7 was release so that may have cause Explorer.exe crashing... before I install these - it was ok but after install it was crashing so I use old version of Nvidia motherboard driver that seem ok - the new version seem to be buggy, I used the Nvidia 15.25 version instead of new 15.51

    For me, the immediate explorer crashes I was receiving went away after getting rid of the newest version of Acronis True Image Home's backup context menu button. There was no setting in the program to remove it, I had to look up what registry keys to delete. I had also previously removed the Nvidia Control Panel's context button through the settings, but with no relief. So, the only extra context button that is left is Microsoft's Security Essentials. We'll see if I get any more crashes in the next day or so.
