Windows Explorer crashing on a loop
Posted on 2016-09-25
Hello, so I have this troublesome Windows 7 Pro 64bit PC which suddenly started having this problem:
a few seconds after boot, explorer.exe starts crashing and restarting, on a loop. This happens in safe mode too.
Things I've tried:
chkdsk /r, no error, disk seems to be fine
malware scan with adwcleaner and roguekiller, no relevant infection
W7 repair install
msconfig with diagnostic boot
Nothing worked. I'm trying to avoid a full format since the PC is very rich with installed software.
So I hope you guys can come up with some other idea. Thanks.
