For a file manager, Windows Explorer (for later puropses, WE)is extremely unstable. Why? First, even MS cannot figure out what you are referring to when you say 'Windows Explorer'. They tend to think you mean the browser. I think they are trying to fix the terminalogy in 8, but dear effing gawd, why did it take so long? Ever since Vista, as best I can tell, WE has been insanely unstable for a file manager. Right click on anything in the navigation pane and WE will (almost) invariably crash, sometimes taking down mere instances, sometimes all. This happened in Vista. This wasn't fixed in 7. This is STILL effing up even tho I've gone to 7-64bit. Anyone have a clue?
