Frequent explorer.exe crashes and restarts.

Heya.

I've been getting frequent explorer.exe crashes.

The eventviewer give this rather unhelpful log.

Code:
Faulting application name: Explorer.EXE, version: 6.1.7601.17567, time stamp: 0x4d672ee4
Faulting module name: mfc120u.dll, version: 12.0.21005.1, time stamp: 0x524fa0af
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x0000000000139655
Faulting process id: 0x73c
Faulting application start time: 0x01d2660c8ccec79e
Faulting application path: C:\Windows\Explorer.EXE
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\mfc120u.dll
Report Id: fc5b48eb-d344-11e6-99d9-94de80ae7897
Is there anyway to find out whats causing this?

I've run AV scans (malware bytes, + windows defender), nothing was found.
