Hi dhomson123, welcome to Seven Forums.

Does Explorer crash every time you check on a file properties, or only when you check on the ones that you have listed.

The ones you have listed with the WERxxxtmp are Windows Error Reporting files & are sent back to Microsoft to try & find a solution.
If you wish to get rid of those files, you can run Disc Clean up, but be sure to select Run as Administrator & it will get rid of those files.

Not every time. Sumetimes I can open 10 properties and sometimes when I open one file properties explorer is crashing.

It can be a virus becouse I have same sytuation on both computer, but I scan computers with scanners like :
Eset, f-secure, malwarebytes, spy-bot.. Nothing was found.

Spybot S&D is known to cause explorer crashes. See this post and read all of it:
