Hi, running Windows 7 x64 SP1 notebook and have recently been getting 'Windows Explorer explorer.exe has stopped working' message more and more frequently, usually every few days now. The notebook hangs when the message comes up, screen blanks then explorer.exe restarts and I can continue working.
I'm wondering if this is a hardware/driver/software issue or something more nefarious. I've scanned with Avast, Malwarebytes and Hitman Pro with nothing found and I also followed a guide to check and remove registry entries from potentially corrupted shellex menus. I only removed one pertaining to 7-Zip and that was today so I probably won't know right away if this has any affect on the Windows Explorer crashing problem.
Any assistance is appreciated, thanks!
