    Explorer restart loop


    Hi all,

    I'm trying to help a friend with a computer issue, every time he navigates to a certain folder, explorer crashes with the following error:

    Faulting application name: Explorer.EXE, version: 10.0.19041.423, time stamp: 0xc6e6ae29
    Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 10.0.19041.423, time stamp: 0x06701e03
    Exception code: 0xc0000374
    Fault offset: 0x00000000000fed79
    Faulting process ID: 0x2524
    Faulting application start time: 0x01d67ff718db2222
    Faulting application path: C:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXE
    Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll
    Report ID: a3097de1-345f-4c60-9baa-64aaef89ae6b
    Faulting package full name:
    Faulting package-relative application ID:


    It appears that if he copies/pastes the folder to the desktop he can access it, but I'd like to try to figure out what is causing it. It is quite deep down in terms of directory structure so may be due to a pathname character limitation? I have tried running chkdsk /f /r on the drive. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    :)

    Explorer restart loop

    explorer.exe crash loop caused by ntdll.dll


    Hi All
    I have a Dell 9150 (yes, it's pretty old!) on which I have been running all of the various W10-64 releases.
    Up to 9926 I have not had major issues, other than Office 2010 outlook and Word throwing CRT errors on launch.
    9926 installed well, but after updates for Office 2010 and W10 OS I now get the explorer restart loop, every second or so.
    Eventually, after 20 - 40 restarts, the cycle stops, but with taskbar icons and start menu tiles and icons missing.
    Restarting explorer in the task/service list restarts the looping process.
    Can anyone suggest the best things/way to look for to debug - or at least identify - the issue?
    Thanks
