Windows 8 File Explorer is crashing constantly, about every 10 minutes. How do I find the source of the problem?
It is very difficult to work with that. It happens in the background, when I'm not even using it. It restarts itself, but sometimes it takes the task bar with it, and takes 1m+ to restart. I have all Windows updates.
I'm not sure if it's relevant, but I have quite a few Explorer extensions, like TortoiseGit, SkyDrive, DropBox, etc.
Found this in the event log. I opened the dialog, and clicked "Event Log Online Help", but it only took me to a 404 error at technet.microsoft.com.
The event mentioned Action Center. I opened it and it said to update my graphics driver, which I already did, and said 3+ items are starting at startup, which I'm ok with right now since the computer is so new and so fast.
I disabled EVERY non-Microsoft extension with ShelExView and it STILL locks up/crashes!
Update: Even after Windows update, and disabling most every extension (including Dropbox, Skydrive, Google), it still locks up.
