Windows explorer will crash and restart on it's own after a right click on any icon on the desktop.

It's most likely to be a problem with a Context Menu Handler. Download and run the ShellExView utility from here (rightclick on it and choose "Run as Administrator"). To group all Context Menu handlers together, just click on Type underneath the Menu items. Try disabling the non-Microsoft items listed under Type -> Context Menu only (one at a time and then try rightclicking to see if you can identify if one is causing the problem). Let us know if this helps.
