Windows Explorer has stopped working

Hi all
My computer runs fine until i try to move any data to a external device (hard drive or usb memory stick). Soon as i try to move i just get "windows explorer has stopped working" and my computer restarts.
Ive tried a few things ive seen on you tube eg scanning and safe mode but the problem persists.
Any help would be great. Thankyou

Have you tried running a chkdsk command from the command prompt? Or an SFC scan?

Greg, you may want to try, if you haven't, msconfig to see if any of your drivers may need updates.
