Explorer.exe Crashes when Opening System Properties. Random Shutdowns

The Explorer.exe issues only just started after doing all the windows updates, was like 160 odd updates. It also happened at the same time i could no longer open Java Games or Steam. Steam just closed itself, Java games come up with the java binary stopped working
I had issues before with Random Bluescreens when gaming, I reinstalled SP1 and they sort of stopped for awhile. Now the PC just randomly, Completly shutdown. When restarting i don't get an error like i was before but making it impossible to play anything. I ran Malware Bytes and Sophos Virus removal tool along with a few other different antivirus, All came back clean. Used the Sfc scanner and it came back with no problems
