Windows 7: explorer crashes

if it doesnt harm to leave it then l may just leave it there, but l may set the error reporting service to manual after l get a crash. when l next turn on my laptop l'll do the same thing and see if its the same issue. tho if another bsod happens l need to post that because last one didnt create any dumps for some reason as l dont remember running any cleanup programs.

still will post a dump file as soon as l experience my next crash (which may take a few days or more to experience as they have been totally random).

Thanks for the list. I don't see any programs that are known to cause explorer crashes.

SafehouseExplorer & KeyTweak!

FYI: You probably don't need GWX Control Panel now but it's your choice.

lol, love those two progs, l pay the bills on behalf of my parents so safehouse program has been a good way to keep their financials safe even if l do loose the thumb drive.. best program l ever found that and being able to disable the caps lock means less mispresses and caps where l want them LOL.


l was thinking the same thing about the GWX control panel but l keep on forgetting to uninstall.. then again its a pretty small prog, leaving it just means if in the unlikely case something does show up again trying to make me go 10 l can stop it lol.

finally had a crash of explorer.exe (happened to be managing files at the time) have attached dump file, will leave the reg entry there and collect another crash dump after this one (that is unless this one provides a pretty obvious solution to the issue).

Looking at the dump now. It will take 5 - 10 minutes to see if it offers anything useful.

Okay it indicates a problem.

1) msvcr90.dll

Suggest - install and update MS Visual C++ Runtime. Could you list versions as show via GeekUninstaller?

so its C++ runtime related?

attached what l see.. what do you suggest l do? uninstall all? then reinstall? if so it would be useful to be directed to the safest place to grab them as l dont think l was offered these through MS update, its possible some were bundled with software l use. (been reading suggestions both 32bit and 64bit runtimes should be installed on a 64bit OS could that be part of the issue)

That just looks like the standard set that you get via windows updates. I would suggest uninstalling them one at a time using GeekUninstaller including the "scan for leftovers"

Then if you like you can use UVK (installed or portable) to reinstall them in one go.

Link if you want to try: UVK - Ultra Virus Killer

Ignore license message. It's free to download and use.

Form Welcome Screen choose "System Repair" and locate the VC++ fix in the left pane and run it.

Or you can download and install each individual component including service packs.

Important: Forgot to mention that you need to reboot after uninstalling VC++ versions before installing them again.
