    Hello there !!

    it seems that your windows system file has been corrupt.
    since when you log on that time this problem occurs, than it mean
    that some of your system start-up items has been damaged /corrupt /removed.

    so, in order to get back your windows running into good conditions you need to follow the given
    two options:-

    1. System restore
    2. system repair.

    In System restore you have to revert back your system to the previous date at which it was working fine.
    so, for reverting back your system you have to follow the basic steps :-
    1. go to start
    2. go to program
    3. go to system tools
    4. select system restore.
    and select the appropriate date at which your system was working fine and restore it.
    now, if you want to repair your system then just put the operating system CD/DVD and run the repair option.

    this will help you out.
    hope i am able to satisfy you.
    thanks for posting in EALP.

    HELLO FRIEND ,

    The problem becomes more frequent often when entering a folder inside explorer and also, when trying to save a Notepad file.

    All appear to be application crashes

    Its caused due to Virus,possibly corrupt file and unsupported programs..

    Scan your computer for viruses and delete temp files


    ALL THE BEST

    In order to fix the problem you must either repair the corrupt windows or restore it to an earlier point when the windows was working with full potency without problem.

    To Restore Windows, click START--ALL PROGRAMS--ACCESSORIES--SYSTEM TOOLS--RESTORE SYSTEM, and input the required information to help windows restore the parity.

    To Repair Windows, insert the Windows7 DVD in the optical drive and boot from it, and from the menu select Repair...., to help Windows self repair the corruption.

    Re: Windows Explorer Crashes frequently

    First and foremost ensure that your Windows is updated and scan your computer for virus and spyware. Follow it up with a Registry Cleaner run. CCleaner is a safe and good freeware. If you have bought a new laptop, maybe some pre-installed craplets are interfering ith explorer.exe. Remove unwanted trialware and de-crapify your machine then.2) Run ChkDsk.3) See if you a System Restore makes the problem go away.4) Disable the Preview Pane in Explorer and see if it helps. To disable the Preview Pane, click Organize > Layout > Preview Pane.5) Disable UAC and see if it helps.6) Disable DEP or NoExecute Protection. Do note that Data Execution Prevention (DEP) is a security feature that can help prevent damage to your computer from viruses and other security threats. Harmful programs can try to attack Windows by attempting to run (also known as execute) code from system memory locations reserved for Windows and other authorized programs. These types of attacks can harm your programs and files. DEP can help protect your computer by monitoring your programs to make sure that they use system memory safely. If DEP notices a program on your computer using memory incorrectly, it closes the program and notifies you. It is as such a security feature. Type cmd in Vista’s search bar. Rt click on search results ‘cmd’ and click on Run as Administrator. Then copy paste
    bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff
    and hit enter. Reboot. This has been known to help in some earlier versions of Vista.7) Open Explorer. Click Organize > Folder & Search Options > View > Advanced Settings > check ‘Launch folder windows in a separate process’ > Apply > OK.8) Check if you have installed any helpers or add-ons to your explorer. Uninstall them. Often, even 3rd party shell extensions can cause Explorer to crash on particular actions. Several programs add items to the right click context menu. Download freeware utility ShellExView.
    It will let you view & disable suspect 3rd party shell extensions. Using Trial & Error method, you may to disable / enable the extensions to try and identify if any of them are causing a problem. ShellExView can be also be used for solving contextmenu problems in Explorer, like, say, if the Right-click is slow.
    and at the end reboot if asked for.
    10) Type wercon in your Start Menu Search bar and hit enter to open the Problem Reports & Solutions Center. In RHS panel click on View Problem History and navigate to where the problems for Explorer.exe may be mentioned. Double click on the report to open it and see if anything there helps you.11) Outdated or corrupt video drivers can cause Windows Explorer to stop working. Update your drivers and see if it helps.
