I use Windows 7 64 bit and Studio 2011 (and 2009 beforehand) and haven't encountered the problems you describe. You should always open files from within Studio. That way you can do it from a project, a single document, open for revision/translation, etc.
IMO I think you should be looking at changing the way you open your files rather than looking to change Windows Explorer versions.
I have to note that Uriama is absolutely right here.
SDL Studio 2009 does not provide Explorer context menus in Windows 64-bit, while it provides Explorer context menus in Windows 32-bit.
This is a serious flaw but I do not think it can be solved: SDL Studio 2009 is a 32-bit application and just runs kind of encapsulated within Windows 64-bit. Hence no context menus.
Indeed you can still open files from within SDL Studio itself but this is not as efficient as right-clicking a file in Explorer and sending it right for translation. I enjoyed these context menus in my Windows 32-bit and I miss them very much in my Windows 64-bit.
