    Fix 1)

    Microsoft recently had a problem with a windows update that caused explorer to regularly crash on some computers. They originally issued a tool to fix the problem.

    Microsoft have now completely fixed the problem. Go to the micrososft windows update website and download all the latest critical updates.

    Unless you have another local problem this may solve the issue for you..

    Fix 2)

    Boot into Safe Mode, see if explorer still crashes.

    If it doesn't, the problem may be related to a conflict or corrupted file.

    Reboot in normal mode

    click start > run>

    type msconfig then click enter.

    Click startup then uncheck all the boxes.

    Restart your computer.

    Click My Computer

    Right Click Local Disc (C:)

    Click Properties

    Click Tools

    Click Check Now to scan for drive errors, you may need to restart your computer

    If that solves the problem one of your start up programs is causing the crash and you will need to find out which one by gradually checking all the boxes, a couple at a time until you find the program that is responsible.

    All the above assumes that you have carried out spyware and virus scans already.

    Fix 3)

    Chadha Saab recommended a System Restore

    That would be a last resort and should solve the problem because it puts your computer back to an earlier condition. Checkpoints are usually made automatically and you need to select a checkpoint to a date when your computer worked ok. If you cannot do this, you almost certainly have a hardware problem.

Explorer.exe Application error

Hi bj_bhuvnesh,

 Whenever internet explorer crashed, you would see the overwritten message.The best option would be to upgrade the browser if you are not using IE 8. You can also copy or format and again install the windows. Create a back up and than format the drive in which you have installed windows files.
Check the below mentioned :-

Thanks for using Fixya.

Explore.exe, application error, memory could not be written

this is probably relating to explorer which is your desktop display for a specific programme. Explore as you say, or do you mean internet explorer, if so download updates for windows. It could also refer to a virus, so when you reinstalled did the recovery cd format the drive first then install or just install over the top of the original installation. If it did format first then it will not be virus. The system crash will be because the system is probably using up all the remaining memory.
