Windows 7 - Explorer Crashes when mouse hove rover taskbar

By schalla2001 ·
Hi Guys

Tried a few things here....but thus far nothing resolved this issue....

Every time I move my mouse to the taskbar, once it touches the taskbar, without clicking it crashes explorer.exe. I`m not a complete novice, but not quite that familiar with windows 7 yet. What I think thus far is that it is the "aero" feature which displays the thumbnail(Screenshot) of running applications parked on the taskbar that causes explorer.exe to crash for some reason, but how to figure out why and how to fix it has me boggled...

Here is the error log....

Your computer may simply be underpowered.

Did you previously run the Windows 7 Compatibility Test before installing?

Which flavour of Windows 7 are you running? Which bit type - 32 or 64?
