Windows freezing problem - explorer.exe dies, help!

Hi

I'm having a strange freezing problem. Sometimes randomly my desktop freezes. I can't right-click any icons, remove icons or do anything for them. To solve this problem every time I need to reboot or log off and log in again. Then Sometimes my explorer.exe -process dies randomly and same kind of problem appears. Any fixes?

Hi. Yes. Uninstall any lesser known software(s) to test. Uninstall your antivirus solution to test.

Uhm? Why I should remove installed software? Isn't there a better solution? -_-

I don't want to randomly uninstall different programs and install them again. I'm looking for a fix that solves this problem at once.

Lets see here, you are running your E8500 at 4.4 GHz with your memory at 1110MHz and now you are wondering why you are seeing freeze ups?

Have you ran Prime Blend for 10 hours to test your overclock? Twenty passes of linX ain't gunna cut it in case you were wondering.

Is your memory made to run at 1110MHz or are you overclocking to get that speed?

And in your post from over a month ago you were having the same problems.
https://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...r-problem.html

And here at the Asus site where it specifically mentions that your board does not like to run at 1110MHz, in fact the memory support for your board seems to have quite a few problems. Just take a look at the second post in the link below.

Try running your memory at the linked and synced setting.
