    The problem occurs under specific circumstances - you must have Classic Explorer installed, you must not have customized the Explorer toolbar buttons, and the setting to run Explorer windows in a separate process must be off.

    To Ivo my question is that whether those who are not having any problem extract the ClassicExplorer64.dll from the zip file and place it in the Classic Shell folder or not?

    Was crashing explorer for me also. Went back to previous version. Thought it might just be something with my system, guess not.
