  1. DWM.exe stopped working

    Hey guys, I've had this issue since far before i upgraded to Win10 but I think you could still help in some ways? As said by the title I get the annoying message of DWM.exe has stopped working every time i switch to the desktop or any explorer.exe. I have done sfc scannow and chdsk, which solved problems but not the dwm.exe one. This leads me to believe that this has to do with a graphics driver problem; however all of my drivers are up to date (display, graphics, latest AMD catalyst etc...) So I need your help! Also, I checked Event viewer and found tons of errors and problems that all related with DWM.exe, so do you need any logs?

    Still cant download recommended updates

    Thanks for replying first of all the only change in the bios is to turn off the LED lights on mother board.

    Error messages today - windows not shut down properly "Used the SFC /scannow & DISM

    /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth as recommended today",

    yesterday - dwm.exe stopped working (x2) day before windows desktop manager stopped working (x1) dwm.exe stopped working (x2)

    I know that I can update each device singly by updating software through device manager but I thought buying the windows 10 disk in December and installed professionally it would be able to install automatically

    Haven't tried stopping antivirus yet do that next.

  4. DWM.exe stopped working

    Here's my fix! I just posted on seven forums. My solution was to go to event viewer, see what the errors said and realized that they were pointing to a path with another DWM exe which was actually a virus. (For those wondering it was in a folder called Msupdate71 in the temp folder in the appdata/local of your user. I got rid of it by running malware bytes and deleting every virus, then running roguekiller and deleting the things that were bad, and last of all running TFC or temporary file cleaner, all of these program you can download online. It got rid of the virus and left me with a happy fresh smooth running windows 10!
