    Explorer.exe can't start Faulting module ntdll.dll

    After logging in all I get is a blank screen. Explorer not running and trying to start it does nothing. Have to do all tasks using command line or from task manager. Cannot open control panel. Did a system restore. This fixed it for a day but it started again. Tried another restore this morning, that did nothing. Have scanned with malwarebytes, rkill and ESET removing 40 infected files. Tried making a new account, no joy. Reinstalled drivers and just finished re-install of win 10 with keep all apps and files. Searching the web has not helped. Log files attached.

    Try uninstalling every app that creates an add-on to explorer. Sounds like an in-compatible app to me.
