You have to copy Explorer.exe from SysWOW64 folder in System32 folder.

No crashes anymore.
I don't believe you .You shouldn't listen stupid advices!

64 -bit Windows systems store 64 -bit system code in C:\Windows\System32
and 32 -bit system code in C:\Windows\SysWOW64,and you shouldn't mix 32-bit files with other 64-bit files and otherwise none of 32 file will work in
in x64 folder.More details:How 64-bit version of Windows differs architecturally from 32-bit version
