    File Explorer stopped working.

    Hi, I upgraded to W10 on the 31st July and all well apart from intermittent stoppages in File Explorer.
    There have been 4 stoppages over this period and an identical one at boot up this morning.
    It is reported in Reliability Monitor although I have neither seen or experienced any problem in running File Explorer.
    Reliability Monitor gives no error details and auto reports have been sent to Microsoft. I did do a restart in Task Manager yesterday but it occurred again this morning.
    However in Event Viewer I saw the following for this morning stoppage: Hopefully these details may mean something to one of you and perhaps allow you to suggest a remedy. Thank you. Yorky.

    Hi remostalin, Actually sfc/scannow was running when I received your reply thank you. At finish it stated it had made certain repairs. That was only 2 minutes ago and it's now a case of waiting to see if that corrected the problem.
    I'll come back in 24 hours or so and advise outcome.
    Thank you.
