I'm one of the lucky few who is running Windows 7 64-bit retail already (build 7600) because i'm a student. Unfortunately, windows explorer crashes a lot, particularly when I right-click to view properties or copy files. Occasionally it will crash if i open my computer or my network. I don't believe it has ever crashed randomly; only when i do one of the things i just mentioned. Here is a log of the error: Faulting application name: Explorer.EXE, version: 6.1.7600.16385, time stamp: 0x4a5bc9bb Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 6.1.7600.16385, time stamp: 0x4a5be02b Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x0000000000051da0 Faulting process id: 0xb98 Faulting application start time: 0x01ca46dd4ceeafd4 Faulting application path: C:\Windows\Explorer.EXE Faulting module path: C:\Windows\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll Report Id: 6bcb16a7-b2d1-11de-931a-00158315a310 hopefully i'm providing the right information. can anyone help me out?
