My Windows Explorer keeps crashing and restarting. When I checked the Event Log, it has apparently been doing this randomly since I had the software installed (replacing my Windows XP) 10 months ago. However, it is happening more frequently now. For the most part, the errors all refer to a 'timeout' when waiting for a response from different services. Latest error:

A timeout (30000 milliseconds) was reached while waiting for a transaction response from the SftService service.

Thanks in advance for your help!

first you must determine if the problem you are experiencing is caused by a software problem or a hardware problem. the best way to do this is to do a fresh install of windows to see if the problem persists.
