I get this same exact crash. Multiple explorer windows, moving media files between drives. W7ProSP1. Frequency: annoyingly often (>1 per hour).

The link in the reply above describes another error code. There appear to be a number of Explorer.exe crashes. MS's inattention seems to suggest they'd rather I upgrade to a different set of bugs.

Here is a grab from the crash popup, with the data values that match the OP. Even the "time stamps" for Explorer and MSVCR90 are the same, which is really strange. I guess they don't really mean "time stamp".

This bug clearly involves having multiple explorer windows open, in my case Win+-> adjusted to half-screen, and multiple monitors. There is no single operation that seems to trigger the crash.
