In my experience, explorer.exe "crashes" are due to an overload of demands on a system's resources. For whatever reson, explorer.exe is a "user" process, not a system process, and so must compete with other applications for CPU cycles and memory.

Explorer handles the display of almost everything we see on our screens. Its job is huge, and if resources are in short supply, it may need more than is available to do its job, and down it goes.

So it is really not an explorer problem, but rather symptom of too much at once for the system. The answer is to discover what is going on in the background and control it so that explorer has the 'elbow room' it needs to do the work we ask it to do.

Please follow this link to read my suggestions for gaining control of background processes: http://doc1101.vox.com/ I have included the web addresses of useful tools and informational sites. No ads, no spyware, nothing to buy or donate, just info. The 'links' are not 'live.' To visit the referenced pages, copy the URLs and paste them into your browser's address bar.
