    Windows Desktop explorer.exe is repeatedly crashing on startup


    Hello,

    Recently, I have been welcomed with a repeatedly crashing Windows Desktop explorer.exe experience. What I mean by that is when I sign in the normal desktop goes from wallpaper to black to wallpaper to black etc. as well as the desktop task bar.
    Only way I've been able to stop this is by ending wsappx's task. After that it is fixed until the next restart.

    Here is the event viewer error from explorer:


    Faulting application name: explorer.exe, version: 10.0.19041.610, time stamp: 0xab30c679

    Faulting module name: ucrtbase.dll, version: 10.0.19041.546, time stamp: 0x43cbc11d

    I'm unsure of what I am able to do other than fully resetting/reinstalling my computer.
    Thanks

    :)

    Can't get GPU-Z to start with Windows 8.1 startup

    I'm not sure how to do that. Could you list the steps for a noob?

    Windows Explorer repeatedly crashing in Windows 10 on desktop

    I have the same problem with my desktop computer. sfc check, as suggested, showed no errors. I have updated all of my drivers for the MSI motherboard.

    The only way that I can get file explorer to open at all is to right-click on the windows start icon and click on File explorer. From that point, I can open additional file explorer windows by using shift-click the file explorer icon pinned to the task
    bar. HOWEVER, while using the successfully opened file explorer window, if I right-click on ANY folders at all, all file explorer windows will crash and close! It is OK to right-click on files, but not folders!!!

    Windows Desktop explorer.exe is repeatedly crashing on startup

    Windows explorer crashing

    Hi,

    I am having the same problem as the OP in this thread.
    Windows Explorer crashes whenever I open my external HDD or thumb drive in explorer..

    I have tried the fixes listed in the above thread and I am getting the same error message as 'ktadie' (post 16). I think this is because I am running Windows 7 Professional. Windows explorer crashes when I open my 'Films' folder on my brand new 2tb external HDD. I have about 300 .avi files in this folder and some of the .avi files are several years old.

    In short I believe I need the same fix given by 'Wile E' (post 7) but updated for Windows 7 Professional.

    Thanks in advance.
