    Tbh, I don't remember if I had to reboot, but probably not. If disabling the nVidia thingie didn't solve the issue, try to remember if you installed anything new, just before the crashes started to happenning. If there is nothing you can remember, try to disable the extensions one by one, and test again after every disabling. It may take a long time, but I think this is the way to go.

    Ah great, I started going through them one by one and found the problem one almost right away. It was called "Autodesk Inventor Part". I disabled it then I realized I don't even like Inventor so I just uninstalled it. lol

    I know this is the Windows 8 forums, but I would like to say thanks from a 7 user, I was having similar problems and this fix worked for me as well.

    I know this is an old topic, but from the so many results in google, this is the only one that provides a good solution.
    So thank you, and I hope it will help more people.

    Just wanted to thank you guys and hopefully this will make this thread easier to find for some; disabling the nVidia extension in the ShellExView worked immediately for me.
