I am running Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1 on Lenovo T400. I am facing a problem whenever I tried to access my wifi properties, it caused Windows Explorer to stop working, and then restarting all by itself. The wifi works fine. However I can never access the properties windows for the wifi. I have been searching through the internet for the same problem but so far I have not found anyone getting the same issue. I have never faced this problem before. I can provide more information upon request to solve this problem. Thank you.

Below is my crash log:

please download this reg file from my SkyDrive: cid-128fc518635be2dc.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/.Public/… and 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. Please upload the dump file (compressed 7z or RAR to reduce the size). After you generated the dumps, download and import this regfile: cid-128fc518635be2dc.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/.Public/… to stop the dump creation. – magicandre1981 Jan 20 '13 at 20:40
    
@magicandre1981 After I run the script, it also make the Windows Explorer to stop working and restart itself when I access the Folder Explorer. It is irreversible even if I ran the un-install script or restart the laptop. Somehow after I try to produce the original crash, I manage to get back my Folders Explorer. So this is the link to the dump with oldest modified timestamp which I guess recorded the original crash: dl.dropbox.com/u/7390098/explorer.exe.4372.rar And this link to the dump among others which recorded the second crash: dl.dropbox.com/u/7390098/explorer.exe.2024.rar – Volodia Jan 20 '13 at 21:58

ok, you have 2 different crashes. 1 comes from apple and 1 from Intel Wifi tools:

so update the Apple tool (or remove it if also reinstalling the latest version doesn't fix it) and install the latest Wifi driver from Intel.

Thans a bunch. I managed to upgrade the driver for the wifi card and now it works just fine. I really appreciate your help. ^^ I cannot vote up for your answer since I does not have enough reputation so sorry about that. Btw, how can you decrypt the debug file I wonder? – Volodia Jan 21 '13 at 16:43
    
I've used WinDbg from the Debugging Tools for Windows to analyze the dump. – magicandre1981 Jan 21 '13 at 20:16
