Sure thing. Here's one from mmc.exe crashing.
The explorer.exe crashes look the same and happen more often.

Quick Update: I now have Windows 7 Professional x64 installed along with all the applications I had under Ultimate. Including KIS2010, Firefox 3.5, Winzip and Sharks Codec Pack for Windows 7. I have left all the installs vanilla with all context menu items as are.

I have experienced only one explorer.exe crash. This was soon after installing the codec pack. It occurred when I tried to delete 2Gb of files while running VirtualDub in the background which made me think it was the codecs. However, the event log did not say it was related to ntdll.dll and I cannot get the crash to reoccur so I think maybe it was just a one off.

There is an occassional slight delay when I right-click which makes me think, "here we go again". But it doesn't crash and everything seems to be fine and stable.

Things that are different from the previous *buggy* install:

- Professional version instead of Ultimate.
- Firefox has been updated to 3.5.3.
- I have not installed the x64 add-ons of Sharks Codec Pack.

I'll install the x64 add-ons today and see how we go.

Hmm.. minidump folder seems to be empty.
Hidden files and such are enabled.
(Actually got msvcrt.dll crash while doing this.. they happen less often than the ntdll.dll crashes)

I've had the same problem and have isolated my problem. It all started when I installed Daemon Tools Lite w/ 1.60 SPTD installed manually. I think its because Daemon Tools Lite was integrated to the windows shell. I've uninstalled it and never had any problems since. Hope that helps. Maybe some 3rd party program windows shell integration is having a conflict with explorer.exe.

I've got Daemon Tools Pro (latest version) installed and haven't had an issue with this install of Windows 7. My previous install crashed without DT installed.

I do think its related to context menus though as disabling them did reduce the frequency of crashes, but did not eliminate them.

I have disabled the KIS context item this time which has fixed the slight pause I'd get when right clicking. But I'm still nervous everytime I right-click as I'm expecting the crash.
