    Seems some people over at Neowin are having the same problem.

    Explorer.exe Stops Responding at Random - Neowin Forums

    I just want it to go away.

    The error has definitely come up less frequently with the help of hijackthis and shellexview..

    but it still persists.
    now, photoshop cs4 (32 and 64 bit) has fallen victim to ntdll.dll.
    there's a popular fix regarding printer drivers.. no go. still crashes. yay.

    This is rather amusing, but I tried running the 32-bit photoshop under compatibility mode (XP SP2) as a last resort and it worked fine, no crash. I laughed, but this is seriously weird stuff. I'm kinda afraid to see if explorer.exe could be run under compatibility mode; dont want to break it. Even then, this is just a work-around.. not a fix.

    Latest suggestion over at the My Digital Life Forums is that its Firefox and x64 systems.

    I do have FF3 installed. So who knows. This is so frustrating because I can't replicate the crash. Win 7 will run fine for hours and then explorer crashes for seemingly no reason. Its like playing russian roulette with the right mouse button.

    Anyone else running Windows 7 Ultimate with FF3?

    I never really had any problems with KIS9, it wasnt until I got KIS10 that I suspected it could be culprit

    LOL! So true.

    Well after reading the post over at My Digital Life I have gone ahead and removed Firefox. I really didn't want to have to do that but at this stage I will try anything. I am utterly desperate for a stable environment.

    I see that the issue has been reported to Mozilla, so hopefully if it does turn out to be Firefox, then we should get a fix soon enough.

    It is most certainly not KIS, at least for me anyway, as I have never installed nor used KIS before.

    I miss Firefox already, I forgot just how bad Internet Explorer actually is.
    I would have used Chrome but I cannot live without LastPass.

    Well if its FF at least we have a culprit as much as I don't want to use IE. I'll uninstall FF and re-enable the context menu items and see if its fixed as well.

    I doubt its KIS2010 as well. I do have KIS installed however, I had the explorer.exe crash prior to installing it.

    Well I've bitten the bullet and installed Windows 7 Professional x64. I don't really need the Ultimate extras and if it is an Ultimate issue then the problems solved for me.

    I'm reinstalling my drivers and applications one by one until I get (or preferably don't get) a crash.

    At this point I'm not installing Firefox. I've installed Opera instead. I'm leaving KIS2010 until last. Once I'm happy that everything is stable, I'll install Firefox and see what happens.
