Start, icon, software, taskbar, whatever I try to click cause Explorer process to restart itself.

I'm using GTX770M, newest GPU drivers. Windows 8 Pro with updates.

It happens every 5-20 minutes, only in Explorer.

Hi,

Press the Windows key to bring you to the new windows 8 start menu and then type "event logs" without quotes. In there on the left hand side double click windows logs and then click system. This will show you a log of all system events, when your explorer crashes refresh the system logs and you should see the problem listed. When you click on that log it may tell you exactly why it happened.
