    Control panel causes explorer.exe to restart


    When every i open control panel, it opens for about 2 seconds, closes, and explorer.exe (The taskbar, desktop) "refreshes".
    Any ideas how to fix this?

    P.S. sfc/scannow couldn't repair some stuff. I attached the sfcdetails.txt

    :)

  2. HELP! explorer.exe keeps crashing. [Windows 10]

    About every 10 to 20 seconds explorer.exe causes my disk usage to reach 100% and subsequently crashes and restarts. I haven't been able to access my control panel, the app store, or windows explorer without it crashing and closing whatever it is I'm viewing.
    I've ended explorer.exe using task manager to see if it was something else that was causing the high disk usage but when I did that memory, disk, and CPU usage we're within a normal range.

  3. Windows 10 "Display driver stopped responding" and wierd Start Menu with AMD

    Update: I've done a 'reset' via the control panel and the problem still occurs : (

    I've found a quick fix through restarting explorer.exe in the task manager, this seems to restore the menu. However it would be great if there was a more permanent solution.

    Your SFCDETAILS indicates it was some Avast components that could not be verified. Avast is a 3rd party Anti-Virus. I would suggest you completely uninstall Avast thru Programs and Features, then download the following Avast Uninstall Utility | Download aswClear for Avast Removal and run it, following the instructions carefully. Then reboot and see if the problem persists. TC


    EDIT: There is a similar problem with upgrading to Windows 10 from Win 7 and involving Avast discussed here: Solved HELP with SFC after DVD upgrade to 10 please - Windows 10 Forums

    I uninstalled avast but it didnt fix it. I upgraded from Win 8.1 to Win 10, but that shouldn't be a problem cause i used to be able to open control panel (Don't ask how long ago, i've had this problem for a while)

    Since you have uninstall Avast, could you do the sfc /scannow again, please, and post the results.

    jman1505.... could you open the control panel while you were still on 8.1? When did you upgrade to Win 10?

    I installed win 10 long ago, around august when it first came out. I used to be able to open control panel in win 8.1 and win 10. But a few months ago, when i opened the control panel, it closed on me and refreshed my desktop.

    I'll try to upload the log in event viewer when sfc scan is finished

    The module IDTNC64.dll is crashing explorer. Did you install any audio software before the problem started? Please look at this article. And thanks for the winver shot.

    I didn't install any audio software at all.
    According to the top reddit post, should i go ahead and uninstall IDT Audio, restart, and let windows reinstall it?

    That sounds like an excellent idea! It may be a piece leftover from your 8.1 ---> 10 upgrade. That certainly can't hurt to try.

    Control panel is all fixed now. IDT audio didn't reinstall but i've gotten audio from YouTube videos and i've tested audio in Volume Mixer, so that's good.
    Thanks for the Help!
