Explorer.exe (desktop/start) randomly crashes throughout the day - Windows 8 Pro RRS feed

  • Question

  • throughout the day, my Win8pro system will crash the explorere.exe with the following error:

    Faulting application name: explorer.exe, version: 6.2.9200.16433, time stamp: 0x50763312
    Faulting module name: DUser.dll, version: 6.2.9200.16384, time stamp: 0x5010846e
    Exception code: 0xc0000005
    Fault offset: 0x000000000001fbe5
    Faulting process id: 0xc5c
    Faulting application start time: 0x01cdef701b038465
    Faulting application path: C:\Windows\explorer.exe
    Faulting module path: C:\Windows\SYSTEM32\DUser.dll
    Report Id: 7035ecf5-5b63-11e2-bea5-88ae1db3417c
    Faulting package full name: 
    Faulting package-relative application ID: 

    this will randomly close some applications dependent on explorer.exe to run, and it will usually dump me back into the experience window (start)

    any help would be appreciated.
