Windows 7 Explorer Frequently Crashes - Error 0xc0000374

original title: Windows 7 Explorer Frequently Crashes!!! **** ... no way!!! yep. It usually happens when my computer is left on overnight or after a few hours of some serious php scripting with but of course MS Expression Web 3. lmfao. It usually results in not being able to rename something ... right click ... delete ... etc. Its one of these not multiples ... that causes a explorer crash and in order to fix this annoying undocumented feature ... i MUST REBOOT! Do you know how annoying this is when your right in the middle of editing some plain text documents!!!!! ... the initial installation took about 20-30min to actually start up and took an excessively long long time to install to begin with.

WTF Microsoft ... I thought Win7 wasnt going to have any of the previous OS issues! Linux FTW!

Same here, constant crashing, Windows 7 is unusable.  I have an AMD Atholon 64 bit running Windows 7 64 bit.  It's unbearable and I did nothing different from when I started the computer.  HEEEAAAALLLLLPPPP!!!

I found my problem! I was using a program called: Taskbar Shuffle. It is 32bit.

I uninstalled it and the crashes went away. I have since downloaded and installed the 64bit version and still zero crashes.

I know many here have uninstalled programs and even reinstalled the operating system. The clue (raging:), could be a rogue 32bit app.

Good Luck!

TaskBar Shuffle is only needed in Xp and Vista. Windows 7 let you drag and drop the Taskbar entries.

 

For all other people with explorer crashes,

please download this reg file from my SkyDrive:

http://cid-128fc518635be2dc.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/.Public/MS%20Foren/Registry/WER%5E_Explorer.reg

and make a double click on the file to import it.

When the explorer crashes, Windows Error Reporting Service (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb787181%28VS.85%29.aspx) creates admp file under C:\Localdumps .

Please upload the file to your public Skydrive folder and post the link here. I take at the dump, maybe I can see the cause.

I have the same problem except in my case it happens when I click on the START button. Explorer.exe crashes with the same error and log information. It usally happens after I havn't used the START button for awhile. It happens at least once, sometimes 3 or 4 times in a row.

@Mongo K550 - you should probably start a new thread about your problem.  Would also be good to create and upload a dump per André's instructions, and provide a link in your new thread.

It looks like you have .net shell extension installed. Remove them please. Extensions in .net cause issues, although it should be solved in .net 4.0

I am having similar issues also.

I created a DMP file, it was huge and Notepad crashed trying to open it.

Can somebody advise exactly how to create the DMP file ? Should the DMP file be made by going to Task Manger and then right clicking on the Libraries Task ?

Once created, where should I put the file ?

Thanks
