Try uninstalling ffdshow if you have it installed. Shit made my explorer crash countless times while doing video-related stuff.

Aswell, Aperantly Rundll32.dll stops working with Explorer.exe aswell.

Emotive@Dont have FFDShow, From some research i've done aperantly it has something to do with WMP, Don't know what i could be.

quartz.dll is the VFW controller, if I recall correctly. Are you trying to view a directory in Thumbnail view? Frequently the thumbnail cache on Windows is a source of crashing (with or without ffdshow*; sometimes it does it with HuffYUV, I think Lagarith has even done it to me a couple times). In Folder Options, you can tell Windows not to cache them.

*which I have zero problems with anyway; I wonder how old the builds are (or what other environmental factors there are) when people talk of ffdshow screwing things up for them. Because I've never had that happen to me, and I've used it for years, making sure to keep it updated.
