SW Shell Extension Crash Loop, SW 2009 sp 0

So I pretty much draw and Model in SW, but I still have old AutoCAD files, and I do use AutoCAD 2008 for sales drawings.

I have found that when ever use AutoCAD 2008 and I browse AutoCAD files I get "SolidWorks Shell Extension Server has stopped working" crash, then two options, close program or debug. Doesn't matter what I chose the error keeps popping up, so I just end up minimizing and ignoring it.

I see no conflicts with this crash, autocad works fine, SW works fine it's just having an annoying crash loop keep popping up that I would like fixed.

Has anyone else seen this problem?
