  • Hi,

    Use ShellExView to disable 3rd party shell extension.


    If Explorer.exe still crashes, please try collecting crash dump to help fix this problem.

    Please download .reg from my OneDrive:


    Following this, please make a double click on the file to import it.When the Windows Explorer crashes, Windows Error Reporting Service creates a dmp file under C:\Localdumps.

    Then upload the dump with OneDrive.
