    Explorer.exe keeps crashing, all solutions provided don't work


    Hello all,

    Every time I boot my computer (running windows 10), the explorer.exe process ends up in an infinite loop. All my desktop icons are gone, then it changes to a blue screen, then my taskbar slowly appears and then it happens over and over again. I've never experienced it this bad, and searched everywhere for a solution. I'm really lost and I don't know what to do.

    This problem started a few months ago where I couldn't access folders, but could do the normal stuff (get on the internet, play games). It's now in a stage where I can't do anything. When I upgraded to Windows 10, everything worked fine and I didn't experience the explorer.exe crashes. It happened at a random time.

    Things I've tried:
    - Looked up the programs which may cause the problem (Inventor 2015 for example), but those weren't installed at all
    - Tried to change the display scaling size (it was by default set on 150% which is normal)
    - Ran a full scan on virusses, and registry faults
    - Removed a key in KHEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, can't remember the exact name
    - Upgraded my graphics driver

    I can't access Windows Event Viewer as that crashes as well. I really hope if anyone can help me out, and any help is appreciated.

    Yours sincerely,


    :)

    Windows 10 Taskbar and Desktop Constantly Refreshing

    none of your solution provided the answer to my problem. I did realized, when I open task manager, that Windows Explorer crashes every few minutes I was managed to create a dump file Windows Explorer but unfortunately I don't have a way to read it maybe

    If it is really that bad, Reset might be the only option.

    Reset Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Try to download this file and run it as admin, it might take a while to finish. In the end, select to clean everything.

    Thanks for your reply. I do not own a windows 10 installation disc, is this necessary when resetting windows 10?
    I'll try the file later, only need to find a way to transfer it to my computer. I'll keep you updated. Once again, thanks.
