I regularly get an Application error followed by a Windows Error Reporting event when I've started explorer multiple times to copy or move data. The running action windows stay open, thus I can easily re-open explorer again by clicking the "From" and "To" links, but it's still annoying.
The error:

Faulting application name: explorer.exe, version: 6.2.9200.16433, time

The XML file mentioned in the report doesn't exist. The WER file does, and I've put it on my website. Explorer loads a lot of modules, but tells me the problem is ntdll.dll, which is one of those you can't disable...

I could, of course, start everything in 'Safe Mode', try to discover which module generates this problem and then just not use it. But this takes a lot of time to solve something that just annoys me. Often, Explorer will just work fine for hours, but when I'm having a 20+ copy/move actions, explorer itself just gives up sometimes...
So, does anyone know a quick fix?

I need a dump file. Follow the steps from here and upload the dump: – magicandre1981 Jul 14 '13 at 18:20
Done. But I can't predict the next crash. Right now, it seems reliable again. – Wim ten Brink Jul 15 '13 at 19:31
