    Default Windows Explorer randomly crashes

    My computer's Window Explorer started randomly crashing about a month ago. It doesn't seem to happen more than 1 or 2 times a week.
    I saved the last two mini dumps as well as a !analyze -v log on the latest dump.
    Anyone know where I can get these dump files looked at to see what is causing this issue?
    Windows Ultimate 64bit.
    Thanks for the help.

    Hello bigdawg,

    Would you go through this link Windows explorer random crashes for Windows 7 64-bit - Microsoft Community see if anything is close to your issue. I'm not skilled in reading dump files.

    Thanks for the quick response however I saw that post. Although it speaks of a similar occurrence, no one seems to have a crash dmp file to look at. In my case, a dmp file is created each time it happens, so if I knew how to read it, I might be able to pin point the problem rather than just guessing and removing software or hardware (maybe it's memory???).
    That's why I was hoping someone could read these dmp files and point me in the direction of the problem.
