Default Windows Explorer error.. Please help

This has started to happen recently and never had a problem before.

Sometimes my router disconnects and reconnects on its own and i get the icon with the two displays on the bottom right of my screen that says that a cable has been disconnected and then everything connects again.

The problem is that every time this happens i get a "Windows Explorer experienced a problem and had to be shut down" error... This has nothing to do with Internet Explorer.. Its Windows Explorer... And every time this happens it seems like windows are having a mini-reboot..

Can someone please tell me what can be causing the problem and how i can fix it?

spyware and virus scans first

what type of network card? wired or wireless? try updating network card drivers.

power down everything. power on devices in this order: modem, router, pc

check for updates for your router.

factory reset your router and rebuild config.

i would just update your anti virus, spyware, and adware progrmas then run them. also just run chkdsk /r /p in recovery console if the scans didnt pickup anything.
