I have Windows 7 Professional SP1 32 bit installed on my machine. Whenever I open the E drive, my Windows Explorer crashes.
This doesn't affect other drives and Explorer doesn't crash when opening the D drive. I have done antivirus scanning & I'm doing anti-malaware scanning, but i don't think I would get lucky.
Update: What I've tried till now and some more useful info:
- I have tried accessing in safe mode. Although it is bit slow, accessing the drive doesn't crash Windows Explorer.
- Drive E is a partition and doesn't contain OS related stuff.
- It is an internal drive.
- I had SP1 installed. I removed that, but it made no difference.
- I have installed many updates (from Windows Update) and I have updated many applications. Can that be a cause of that? Sadly, I have not noted time when it started crashing.
- I ran
chkdsk E: /F /X, it did not report any errors
Note: I found this in my event log:
