Every now and then, when I click on Power Options in the Control Panel, I get the message "Windows Explorer has stopped working." Explorer then restarts and sometimes I can re-click and things are fine, or it may fail two or three times in a row.

It may go weeks between occurrences, or happen every time for a couple of days--doesn't seem to be any pattern, and it doesn't seem to matter what the power state is.

System is Gigabyte GA-970-UD3, Phenom II 960T, 8 GB G.SKILL 1600 ram, 64GB OCZ Vertex SSD, and 500GB Hitachi HD, Radeon 4890, Seasonic Gold 560w, Windows 7 64-bit.

This problem never happens with anything else or with my other two Windows 7 installations. Anyone have any ideas?

Of course--totally blanked out on event manager. :eek:

Found the problem in event manager, googled it, found some solutions--we'll see if they work.

Thanks
