I can still open File Explorer, and so far it works okay in that regard, but it seems like its ancillary functions have been disabled. I suspect that an update had been installed post upgrade that is causing the issue - I will review the update history once I get home from work to see, if in fact, any updates have been install - if none have been then I will have to look for other potential causes. Before you do what Sporifics says and downgrade back to your previous version of windows. Thank you I just wanted to add some input to this posting. My Lenovo Y700 has been suffering from an issue since October of 2016, one which I imagine many people on this forum or at least those of you who have also purchased this laptop model are aware of. Later it tells me it couldn't fix the issue, from here I have two options. As soon as it is connected to the internet.
Actually, There are several things that may cause this issue. I am experiencing the same issue. There shouldn't be much explorer cache, if any. I have had this problem on two computers now: The first one, an Asus laptop, I fixed it by nuking the harddrive and reinstalling Windows. The stored exception information can be accessed via.
This is seriously starting to get annoying. So take a look at them. You'll need to do with quick, before explorer. Let me know if this works, and feel free to reply if further assistance is needed. Explorer would always crash when I tried clicking user accounts under control panel.
Apparently, the Windows 10 Installer does not properly manage permissions. Have run Malwarebytes Anti-malware thoroughly and anti-virus scan too in the safe mode, but problem stills persists. Along with it constantly reloading it self every 5-10mins you could see the flicker of the task bar when it crashed. In summation, when, if ever, can I expect a fix for this issue? So, I had them roll back the computer to before the update in question was released, and disable all automatic updates. It will detect the malicious programs and viruses and delete them.
I can access the c drive contents through command. However, today, things are starting to break. Took care of the issue. I continued to use 7 though the xp still remained in Windows boot manager upon startup. I upgraded three of my computer to Windows 10 64bit on 29 July 2015 build 10240 , two of them I have no issues with, however one of them today, 31 July 2015, when I started it this morning once it had booted to the desktop explorer started a continuous crash loop. Finally tracked problem to explorer but have no idea how to fix it without nuking my hard drive.
As a temporary solution I was going to pause windows updates for the next 35days. After a restart this seems to have fixed my problems so thank you! Along with it constantly reloading it self every 5-10mins you could see the flicker of the task bar when it crashed. I tried a lot and googled a lot and this simple trick helped! I also tried creating a new local user but that showed exactly the same problem. I upgraded windows 8 to 8. Resetting Windows did not help. I'll try that when I get home from work. I was having the same issue with upgrading from windows 7 to 10.
Here's how I fixed it - 1. The last thing I did was the Windows Repair Tool. Conclusion If the problem still exists, you may go for a system restore or reinstallation of your Windows. Ludwig Adam, I tested your theory, and it worked, but in a wonky roundabout way. Need to find a solution as this will be unsustainable for our help desk once we ramp this up and deploy to our entire enterprise. If you have this same issue you will need to launch task manager and then launch explorer. The file explorer, however is completely unaffected.
Before you do what Sporifics says and downgrade back to your previous version of windows. But it was later on fixed by another. I didn't care about anything on the harddrive because it was backed up. Check the Hide all Microsoft services checkbox, and then click Disable all. There was a Windows Update causing this problem. That'll stop Explorer from looping restarts.
If yes, would you like to share your solution in order that other community members could find the helpful reply quickly. Tried even doing image restore but windows wanted drivers for the hard drive; that doesn't make sense to me either. This is the main issue causing the screen to blink. One of their employees told me that Lenovo and Windows had released a patch fix to address this issue, so I brought the laptop in today and they re-enabled automatic updates. In case, You still need help, I suggest you to. Before you do what Sporifics says and downgrade back to your previous version of windows.
