Windows 7: explorer.exe has shut down

Windows 7: explorer.exe has run into a problem and needs to close. I am seeing this far to often on all 4 of my Win7 computers. 1 is x64, 2 have ddr3, THey are all very different so I am not sure what is causing it. It happens at least 1 or 2 times a day.

Anybody else seeing this?

That's too vague to diagnose. Do you have any minidumps?
I dont know the cause, but are all of your computers installed from the same W7 disk?
No, not the same disk... one is a Dell upgrade, one retail, 1 x64 upgrade, and 11 32bit upgrade.

Something they have in common is Adobe Master Collection CS3, so I thought that might be the cause, so I reinstalled without it and sure enough explorer.exe shut down on me. I use Microsoft Security Essentials on all of them, so I guess that could be it too.. I will get you some dumps when I get back to work!
