This happens to quite a bit. I am not even browsing or using the browser, last time it happened I was sorting pictures on my partitioned drive just a few minutes ago. Does anyone have any real answers about this issue? Is MS aware of it?

Thanks...

I would be more than happy to help, but I suggest you would get a whole lot more help if you were to start your own thread.

Let me know if you need help with that

I have decided to go back win xp pro. It works fine and explorer does not crash. Should I decide to use win7 pro in the future I'll start a new thread.

Thanks...

I am running a 32 bit system with the same problem. Windows Explorer has stopped working. It was coming up so often that I went back to win xp. Does anyone know of a real cure for this yet?

Thanks...

BTW, I am running win xp with updates turned off, using Google Chrome. Advanced security features with no other MS products installed. My computer is running great without all of those updates every day!
