    Hi,


    My File Explorer on Windows 10 is not working. As a result, I can't access any of my files. All other programs that do not need to use file explorer are working. If I click the file explorer icon, nothing happens. I can access my documents if I load them via MS word, otherwise I can't access any other files.


    I have tried restarting it in task manager, and my computer refuses to start in safe made - it shows the following error: "The operating system couldn't be loaded because a critical system driver is missing or contains errors - File:\Windows\System32\drivers\usbehcisys Error code: 0xc0000098.


    Please advise on how I can fix it. I do not have a restore point saved on my computer so my system restore options are limited... I think.

    :)

    Hi Mick,

    I am sorry to know that the File Explorer is not working on the Taskbar.

    I suggest you to right-click on it to unpin it from the task bar.

    Then search for File Explorer in Search. Then right-click on it to Pin it to Taskbar.

    If the issue persists, try the steps below.


    • Type CMD in Search. Right click on it to run as an administrator.

    • Type the following 4 commands at the Command prompt:
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    sfc /scannow

    powershell

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}


    • Close the CMD window.

    • Check to see if the issue is resolved. If not, restart the PC.
    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.
