    File Explorer stopped working.


    Hi, I upgraded to W10 on the 31st July and all well apart from intermittent stoppages in File Explorer.
    There have been 4 stoppages over this period and an identical one at boot up this morning.
    It is reported in Reliability Monitor although I have neither seen or experienced any problem in running File Explorer.
    Reliability Monitor gives no error details and auto reports have been sent to Microsoft. I did do a restart in Task Manager yesterday but it occurred again this morning.
    However in Event Viewer I saw the following for this morning stoppage: Hopefully these details may mean something to one of you and perhaps allow you to suggest a remedy. Thank you. .
    Explorer.EXE 10.0.10240.16405 55b4596f unknown 0.0.0.0 00000000 c0000005 00007fff3887000a acc 01d0cda6fd541180 C:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXE unknown d2da1227-2059-41f4-b45b-8aa3ece9af18

    File Explorer stopped working,

    This suddenly happened to me last weekend. I use 3 different laptops - all running the same version of windows 10 - 2 are 64-bit, one is 32-bit - and it was the 32-bit that had the problem.

    I uninstalled last weeks updates - no effect. Tried the solutions in this thread - no effect.

    As the problem was happening when loading folders tried removing the file explorer history from quick access folder - right click on quick access folder>options>clear file explorer history.

    Problem has now gone away.

    File Explorer stopped working.

    Hi remostalin, Actually sfc/scannow was running when I received your reply thank you. At finish it stated it had made certain repairs. That was only 2 minutes ago and it's now a case of waiting to see if that corrected the problem.
    I'll come back in 24 hours or so and advise outcome.
    Thank you.
