I am having a hell of a time trying to figure this one out! I enabled explorer.exe local dumps to my C drive and I was able to analyze these dumps below. I have disabled any 3rd party Context Menu's using ShellExView and these are still occurring. I see all originate from one users account based off of file ownership. I rebuilt that users profile and now I get 2 others from another user who has never logged a crash after a week of logging. This is a Windows 2008R2 Enterprise Server running as a Terminal Server. The event log always references ntdll.dll as the culprit. Below is when I could actually get my windbg to work for me.

It's doubtful anyone is going read through your dump of the dump. –  joeqwerty Sep 6 '13 at 20:24
    
Maybe you should paste/upload the dumps somewhere else and highlight any interesting parts instead –  Mathias R. Jessen Sep 6 '13 at 21:36
    
Agreed. Please clean up the question. –  Drew Khoury Sep 7 '13 at 6:47
