I'm using windows 7 home premium on an asus laptop.
Whenever I use windows explorer to look at files it'll crash. It starts to crash much quicker when I am am copying documents. It closes itself down the restarts fine. I have done a SFC /scannow which shows that only the Chinese mandarin language pack is corrupt.

I have also wiped the hard drive before which solved the problem, it then came back so I have just wiped the hard drive again. This time it has not fixed the problem.

I am thinking of upgrading to Windows 8 while it is on offer but wanted to get my laptop fixed before I upgraded it, alternately will installing Windows 8 fix the problem completely because it is a brand new OS?

Thanks for your time,

I would ask this again in the operating system forum that matches yours as I doubt it is malware and a new install would a new I would fix it.

Thank you for providing the new topic link.
