    I'm running Windows 7 64-bit Retail build 7600.
    I can send emails, browse the Internet, etc... but Windows explorer crashes a lot when I right click to view properties or copy files.
    It gives me the option to restart explorer which it does but the problems mentioned before remains.
    Occasionally, it will crash if i open my computer.
    Can anyone help me out?
    Thanks!

    Are you using a loader? If so try and uninstall it and see if that fixes it.

    Have you updated your Windows using only Windows Update? Or have you installed these unofficial update packs and hotfixes?

    Reinstall your system and use Windows Update only.

    If you have that problem with full updated 7, then you have memory problems. Update fresh install and then try.

    Wow, that sure was fast! :rolleyes:

    Hardware failure? Test your memory etc.

    But first of course update using Windows Update only. No unofficial stuff.

    Correct, but 85 updates will take him more time then a fresh install.

    Just make sure it is not a memory issue Click start and in the search box type Windows Memory Diagnostic and run it. Choose one of the option and let it see if there is any issues.

    Are you using any 3rd party video / audio codecs ? I had this issue a while ago. I use K-lite codecs and for a time when i had "make mkv thumbnails" enabled every time i right clicked anything explorer.exe crashed. Disabled "mkv thumbnails" and oila problem solved.

    Does explorer crash on its own or are you doing something when it happens?

    It crashes many times when I copy, paste files, and when I right click to Copy or view Properties.
