Windows 8 Explorer.exe crashes constantly

Postposted on Wed Nov 07, 2012 1:38 am

After installing Windows 8 and my applications, i've been getting a weird problem where explorer.exe crashes once and hour or so.

Faulting application name: Explorer.EXE, version: 6.2.9200.16384, time stamp: 0x50107dbc
Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 6.2.9200.16420, time stamp: 0x505ab405
Exception code: 0xc0000374
Fault offset: 0x00000000000ea485
Faulting process id: 0xe28
Faulting application start time: 0x01cdbc9f5f3a6d8a
Faulting application path: C:\Windows\Explorer.EXE
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll
Report Id: 5109e0da-28ab-11e2-be7f-001b21413384
Faulting package full name:
Faulting package-relative application ID:

Its getting really annoying. Google search reveals it might be a shell extension problem. I downloaded shxview and disabled some of the non microsoft shell extensions but the problem still persists. Does anyone here have any idea what could be causing this? Experiences? Tips on finding the root of the cause?
Many thanks!

Please do report back and if you can please make note of the programs that you installed.

Google says Exception code: 0xc0000374 is usually a shell extension incompatibility. Libre Office shell extensions was causing problems with me in Win7 so I disabled them now on Win8. I seems like it happens more frequently when i'm browsing photos and videos but i'm not too sure.

I might of resolved my own problem. I was browsing a folder with a bunch of zip files the other day and explorer kept crashing. I followed these instructions and disabled zip folders support.

It might be a fluke but explorer.exe no longer crashes. Hope this info will help others with similar problems as me.
