  1. Hey Guys,

    Recently I've been having problems with windows explorer crashing over and over. I can't seem to pin point the cause because it seems to happen at very random times. Sometimes I will go a whole day on my machine without a single crash. Then, one day it will happen and then keep reoccurring until I reboot the machine. The crashes seem to become more frequent when I am running steam or using my the Raptr desktop client. But, it happens even when neither is being used or running for that matter.

    Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing this crash?

    Thanks in advance :D

    Are you talking about Internet Explorer "IE" the browser?

    No, Windows Explorer is the file and folder manager for Windows operating systems. Unfortunately, mine keeps crashing on me.
