I'm not sure if you ever got this solved - if not, I would scan with WDO:
What is Windows Defender Offline?

And also see if this helps:

After checking for infection here are other Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

Nothing can compare however to getting a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
which steps are the same for retail.

I scanned the thread and didn't see any dump files posted. Did I miss something?

I'm not sure that this very patient OP (e.g. no bumping) is seeing a BSOD (despite the fact that the post is in the BSOD sub-forum).

My guess is that the OP has an app or infection that is taking down explorer at random times. Would such a crash make dump files?

Ops, my misunderstanding. I thought it would since it handles nearly everything on the PC. A program crash will at least show up in the system log. Explorer starts at Windows' boot as part of Session 0 initialization (system) and before any user initialization (Session 1). I guess I need a definition of the OP's term of "crash". Is the system freezing with a screen showing or is it black?

Well, skip that. I see that it's Windows Explorer and not the service Explorer.

Dont forget this sub forum used to be crashes and debugging when the OP started the thread, John renamed this sub forum to BSOD recently :)
