  1. Force closed explorer.exe and turned off my PC.


    I force closed explorer.exe and then turned my PC off and on again to try and restart explorer.exe.
    It now seems that explorer.exe will not start. I can now do nothing but wave my mouse on a black background on my main screen. Everything is also displayed at a lower resolution, that dose not fit the screen.

    :)

    rundll32.exe opens and closes continiously


    All this started back in early August, or about the time "Windows Creator" was installed.
    I have sound notifications for processes that open or close, a paranoia from long ago, or I would have never known this was going on.

    rundll32.exe continuously opens and closes (1-2sec intervals) when a "windows explorer" R click menu is pulled up. I can pull up "MS Process Explorer" and it all stops. Found the culprit process by 1st pulling up "Process Explorer" and then R click on any icon pinned to the taskbar. I could then see the process open and closing.

    I'm sure someone will suggest to simply just turn off the sounds for opening and closing, but I like to know when something is happening that is not normal, and a continual opening and closing of a process is not normal.... Normally all is quiet.

  4. Force closed explorer.exe and turned off my PC.

    why does the file explorer closes everytime a folder with exe programs is opened. an error

    Hi

    Thanks for your help.

    Unfortunately it did not work.

    The MS support walked thru similar steps, we even reinstalled, deleted the folder but with no resolution.

    It is strange because this happens specifically on folders that have .exe programs. I can access other folders.

    The programs within the directory are listed and about 20 seconds later it closes.

    regards
