I have this problem for a while now and it's getting on my nerves. Every time I tried to view a file in a folder, at random the explorer will crash. I tried searching online but nothing helps. Any help is appreciated.

Why do you have a 64-bit system?

Maybe just because he wants? Maybe he's a gamer or works with memory-hogging applications, who knows. Doesn't really matter.

I'm not really having any guesses. Any file in any folder, or just one file in one particular folder? Maybe, as much as I hate to say it, it's a virus.

I have a 64-bit OS.

I need it in order for Windows to recognize and use my 12 gigabytes of RAM.

But RamboDerp, why do you need 12 gigabytes of RAM? That's silly.

I need 12 gigabytes of RAM because I work with textures whilst also working with high-poly models in a real time environment.

That right there's the problem.

Maybe he wants to move with the times and not be restricted by the old-as-hell 32-bit word.

Stop that, Windows is fine as long as you know how to operate it correctly.

@user EngiN33R: Maybe his motherboard doesn't support 64-bit? 32-bit is more than enough for gaming.

@user EpicCrisis: Is your PC custom-built, stock or ordered from some guy?

Windows is a giant security hole with programmers behind it's development that are the figurative equivalent of hill-billies.

Put basically:
Using the NT kernel for pretty much every OS you produce since is just stupid. Well done Microsoft.

Hold up, my explorer crashed whenever I tried to view a file in a folder. No virus, I'm guessing the explorer is corrupted and I need to find a way to fix it.

I typed sfc /scannow in the command, it says it found the problem but could not fix it.

From a legit shop and not from some random guy. It was working very good until it started crashing about 5-6 months ago. It just annoys me when it crashes and needs restarting but I really need to find a way to fix this shit soon.

instead of restarting the PC, you can execute "explorer.exe" (Start>Execute>)

i found that it is a spyware, to solve it you need M.B.A.M (malware bytes anti malware, it is very good) good luck

I've had this problem before (not on my pc tho--on a 64bit one)...

Just use the command prompt to delete the file or folder.

Agree with @user PyKemis: , write in the command prompt ATTRIB to see all files in the folder that you are in, use 'cd..' to back to the previous folder, use 'cd' <Name of the folder> to go to that folder, use DEL <Filename.typeoffile> to delete, use the command 'start <nameoffile.typeoffile>' to open a file (to see all commands type 'help')

I sometimes stop explorer.exe from working to make my desktop look phat.

But then, sadly. I must restart my computer.

People, explorer.exe is part of Windows. The hardware is not going to affect the problem whatsoever. ( Did I not already state that Windows was the problem? [trollface] )
