    Windows file explorer keeps freezing and crashing.


    Hi. It's been more than one month that I'm having this problems with Windows 10 Enterprise. I don't know what's causing it, but here's whats happening: When some program, game or similar needs to open "open file" and even sometimes "Save file as", the windows from File Explorer opens, freezes, and after a while it closes itself without issuing any error message. I tried a lot of fixes already, like repairing tools from windows itself, cmd commands like "sfd /scannow" and "netsh winsock reset". Some programs, like internet browsers (I use Opera) work fine when I try to download/save something, the file explorer window open and doesn't crash.

    I appreciate any help. Thanks in advance. (Sorry for my english, I'm brazillian).

    :)

    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.

    File Explorer in Windows 10 keeps crashing

    So after installing Windows 10, File Explorer keeps crashing

    Say I'm looking in 2 folders at the same time, its a given that one of the folders will freeze, and control alt delete, restart windows explorer/file explorer is the only option.

    Is there a fix for this?
