Window stops responding because of AWE64

I updated my old SoundBlaster16 to a new AWE64, and now my computer stops responding to anything after a few minutes of windows-actioning. ie. If I do anything, even with only a notepad, I can do it only for few minutes before everything stops (mouse and keybord).
Other strange thing was that if I removed automatic-resource-settings from its drives, windows stops when I try to shut it down, it only reaches to the part 'Please wait while computer shuts down'

Please help, this drives me crasy.

If you are using the driver from the enclosed AWE64 CD, download the new drivers, and i think you will be ok.

Otherwise I would recommend taking a look at the device manager to make sure there are no conflicts with the board. (eg. IRQ conflicts).

Those were easy points...
I updated drivers but I after that realized that the culprit for problems actually is IExplorer.

I have experienced exactly the same problem with the AWE64 Value. Try downloading sbw95up.exe from C labs web site. I found that helps, but still experience the problem, following GPF's.
It appears the card stops responding after that,
