    File Explorer quits working


    I have 2 laptops that have recently been restored to factory settings, one was to Windows 8.1 Pro, the other to 7.1. I then upgraded them to Windows 10 via Microsoft.

    They both seem to work except, once in awhile (at least daily) File Explorer refuses to start and I have to restart in order to work.

    Any suggestions or solutions will be greatly appreciated.

  3. Internet Explorer quits working

    Hi Dianne,

    An outdated browser is one of the possible causes why Internet Explorer crashes when you play a game. To isolate your concern, kindly answer the following:

    • How are you connected to the internet? Is it via Wi-Fi or Ethernet?
    • Have you tried play the game in a different web browser to see if the issue persists?
    Meanwhile, kindly follow these steps to help you resolve your concern:

    Method 1: Clear your browsing history. You may refer to this

    Method 2: Reset the web browser. Open Internet Explorer> Settings> Internet Options> Advanced> Reset...> Apply> OK.

    Note: Please save your important credentials and web pages to a cloud storage or external drive to avoid data loss.

    After doing these steps, please restart the computer.
