  1. windows settings starts to open then disappears


    When I try to access windows settings it seems to start loading then it disappears.

    If I try to access my screensaver settings by right clicking the desktop it doesn't work

    I've tried using the control panel troubleshoot problems and get this error message:

    "file system error (-214721919)"

    I've followed all the links on the discussion boards and there appears to be no solution that works

    Please help

    :)

  2. Settings in Windows 10 - not opening. Just flash and disappears

    Thanks Kiran,

    I have problem only with "settings". I am able to click open all other listed apps and functions. My windows was all updated just before Windows 10 installation started.

    I am working on other steps that you suggested above. Will let you know the outcome soon.

    Thanks again.

    windows settings starts to open then disappears

    Settings can't be opened using the built-in administrator account


    Hello,
    Unfortunately I have the same issue as Dabz from upgrading win7 to win10.
    I've tried opening settings using all the suggested methods and it will not load using my account with Administrator access nor the built-in Administrator profile. I also tried other methods not listed such as using Run. Control panel is just a stepping stone to add users in Settings.
    I'm also having explorer.exe issues, which I believe is preventing Settings from loading.
    Using cmd (Admin) I successfully created a new user profile [and granted admin access also using cmd (Admin)], however win10 will not allow this account to log on. win10 does not list this new user within control panel but it does in the start menu. win10 will not allow to log in or switch to the new account via the start menu either.
    I can access settings in Safe Mode but this will not allow me to create a new account.
    Any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers
