  1. “This PC” hanging when I try to open it. Says “working on it…”


    Well, since last update, I've been having this problem. I actually had it in the past and suddenly, it stopped.

    But looks like now it has come again to haunt me. What happens is, after I log in, after maybe one hour or so, and then try to open "This PC", it hangs, saying "Working on it". Even if I stop the process and start it again, it doesn't work.
    It's incredible how I have been having bugs like these, taskbar bugs, green ribbon of death etc. since I started used W10. I passed more or less one year (2015) with all these bugs together. Each time Microsoft sent an update, a problem gone away, but a new one was created.Looks like it's happening again.

    The strangest thing is that DISM Restore Health, SFC Scannow etc. never present anything wrong with my W10. Anyone can help me out with this problem?

  2. Windows 10 infinite restart black screen


    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.

    Mail app will not open on 10041.


    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. “This PC” hanging when I try to open it. Says “working on it…” :)

    In this Windows 10 build 10041, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps may be broken due to a licensing issue with the Store Beta. To get these apps working again, you need to follow these steps:

    • Open powershell as administrator
    • Run the command Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    • Re-install Mail, People and Calendar from the Store (green tile)
