I have a machine that is experiencing the same problems. It also runs Office 2010 and random processes are crashing randomly (mustly due to heap corruption, as my crashdumps show), including explorer.exe
It's always related to the heap and the problem is occuring since Apri lthe 14th.
Could it be, that the bug is related to some Microsoft updates installed?
I already checked RAM -> No problems, even changed the RAM Module just to be sure.
I checked for viruses, but there weren't any viruses found on the system.
There were no new software installations except for the windows updates.
I'm really clueless what could be causing this. Any ideas? Maybe uninstall the M$ updates from Apri land see if the problem goes away?
One stacktrace of explorer.exe showed, that it was trying to send a LVM_GETITEMTEXT to some listview but the LVITEM-Pointer in LPARAM was pointing to a location on the Heap that didn't exist (anymore?) causing the crash, but as I said, the crahes have random causes, the only thing in common is that they are heap corruption errors.
Office 2010 (Word, Outlook) is always crashing with 0xc0000374 (Heap corruption)
Any help would be apreciated.
