We have not experienced vista explorer hang/crash here with QNAP NAS.
May I know if you have any firewall or anti-virus software installed on your Vista?
Do you have another PC to test?

I have an iMac which works fine and an XP laptop that also works fine. Its just the vista machine.

On my Vista 64 system installing iTunes prevented some of the Qnap services from displaying, and crashed the router every other day. You could disable the Bonjour service, but that would probably not allow itunes to find its library on your Qnap server.
Microsoft does have a entry on this problem - which I now cannot locate. According to them the problem was with all versions of Vista and Windows 7. The explanation is along the lines of: Bonjour initially cannot get an ip address from the DNS, it sets the route to 0, and subsequently does not update it when an address is obtained. This then prevents proper communications.
Note that Bounjour inserts itself into Microsoft's winsock communications stack to intercept communications.
