    I was so happy when I thought I finally had it licked. Back in February, I did something I almost never do; ran the registry cleaner in CCleaner. After that, my explorer.exe crashes disappeared, forever, I hoped. Oh well.

    It used to crash several times a day and either restart itself or prompt me to do it. It occurred more frequently when the DVD drive was in use, but could do it any time, whether I was using explorer or not. I read somewhere that someone had fixed his by cleaning the registry with CCleaner. Out of ideas, I gave it a try, and voila... all better. Until I plugged in a DVD today. I have probably used the drive 10 times since the crashes disappeared.

    I haven't seen much in forums about it lately, but I wonder if everyone that had the problem figured out what (many things, I believe) was causing it, or if they just gave up. Either way, I figured I would post the event viewer log and ask if there any new revelations about the problem.

    They all say the same thing.
    Thanks for any thoughts on the matter,

    If that doesn't work for you boot your computer from your windows cd & run repair.
