Explorer crashing after upgrading

The Windows Explorer keeps crashing after I upgraded my PC from Windows 7 Home Basic to Professional. Tried to disable previews, runned SFC, but not solved.

I'm wondering, just how you did that upgrade, since Windows Home and Windows Pro are two different OS's. ???

I just used My Windows 7 installer and it said some warnings and upgraded to Windows 7 Pro.

Not too sure what the process is to upgrade from one Windows 7 version to another, but I have a felling that if you tried overwriting your current install that may be the source to the issues. It would be better to use the Win 7 Pro disk and format the drive and start fresh.

Make sure that when you install the OS you only have one hard drive connected as Windows has a bad habit of installing the boot loader on the second drive when two or more drives are connected on OS install.

I reupgraded, when I touch the address bar, it crashes. I have QTTabbar installed.

Did you follow suggestions in Post #4? If not, I suggest you try that. Don't install anything else (e.g. QTTabbar) until Windows Pro is installed and updated.
