I have installed chipset drivers, I have installed video drivers from nvidia's site, I've gone to windows basic, and it still doesn't cut it.

ECS GF8200A v 1.0
AMD Athlon 7750 Dual-Core Processor @ 2.7 Ghz
nVidia GeForce 9500 GT 1 gb PCIe x16
4 gb RAM DDR2
1 TB Hitachi SATA II Hard Drive

Turning off Avast does not solve it.

update: it seems to work for me now regardless of what runs in the background, I suspect that one of the windows updates might have fixed it, or it was really the nvidia chipset/gpu drivers.

have you installed all windows updates? there was one specifically adressing crashes in older applications...

You're kidding right? That's an explorer killer, much like batch files.

You didn't read my other post. I said everything is up to date. I'm not going to look through services again. Waste of time, especially when most services have specific functions that make windows 7 what it is.
