Windows explorer crashes when searching in Windows 7

When searching in the search bar within windows explorer, it will search for about 2 seconds and then crash explorer. I tried installing updates, disabling shell extensions, uninstalling recent software. It will search when I login as administrator. It's getting an ntlldr error in event viewer.

yes, I did a rebuild on it too. The main search needs to be on a network drive (X:). I didn't see the drive listed under Indexing options but it crashes on both C: and X: I tried uninstalling the nvidia drivers too.
