    Windows Explorer stopped working

    Recently discovered Windows Explorer stop working. Ran SFC /ScanNow result were some flies were repaired, which directed me to C:Window\Log\CBS\CBS.log, nothing found there. I have no idea what to do, it was only by accident I discovered it was not working, no error messages or any signs.

    Try running the following in sequence from a Elevated Command Prompt.
    If necessary, run them a couple times.

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    SFC /scannow
