Welcome to Geeks2Go!

You may find a fix from one of the suggestions here:

(Mods - these links are not to other forums. I know that's frowned upon here - quite understandably)

I have the same problem, but only with the non-Windows icons on the Desktop. Tried disabling several of the shell extensions, and while it seemed to speed up the response time (especially disabling the Nvidia shellex), still get the Explorer crash. All Desktop extensions were Microsoft - could it be one of theirs?

Disabling ALL the non-Microsoft shell extensions (about a dozen or so) did the trick! Now all I need to do is go back and enable them one at a time to see which one was the "habitual offender."

Thanks very much!
