    [NOT BSOD] Windows explorer randomly crashes and never restarts


    I've been using my computer normally for the past few days, but today my entire computer froze up, all the currently open applications like discord were working just fine.
    I was able to talk with my friends on discord until I was forced to restart my computer due to the fact that the background was just blank (color of the theme) with no taskbar/desktop at all.

    In there event viewer there are over 119 errors over the past 2 hours, most of them having the source of ESENT.

    Here's a few of them
    • svchost (4676) Unistore: Unable to create a new logfile because the database cannot write to the log drive. The drive may be read-only, out of disk space, misconfigured, or corrupted. Error -1032.
    • svchost (4676) Unistore: An attempt to open the file "C:\Users\John\AppData\Local\Comms\UnistoreDB\USStmp.log" for read / write access failed with system error 5 (0x00000005): "Access is denied. ". The open file operation will fail with error -1032 (0xfffffbf8).
    • svchost (4676) Unistore: Error -1032 (0xfffffbf8) occurred while opening a newly-created logfile C:\Users\John\AppData\Local\Comms\UnistoreDB\USS.log.
    • svchost (4676) Unistore: Database recovery/restore failed with unexpected error -1032.
    • svchost (4676) Unistore: Error -1032 (0xfffffbf8) occurred while opening a newly-created logfile C:\Users\John\AppData\Local\Comms\UnistoreDB\USS.log.
    • svchost (4676) Unistore: An attempt to open the file "C:\Users\John\AppData\Local\Comms\UnistoreDB\USStmp.log" for read / write access failed with system error 5 (0x00000005): "Access is denied. ". The open file operation will fail with error -1032 (0xfffffbf8).


    It has nothing to do with space on the PC, I have nearly 700 GBs free on my main drive. I'm currently using the PC right now to write this and it's working just fine.
    I've tried sfc/ scannow and chkdsk but they have not reported any sort of error at all.
    Also to make sure it wast a virus I scanned with malewarebytes & windows defender (not at the same time of course)
    So, if anyone know's what's going on any help is appreciated, thanks


    Here's the DM log if it can help in any way
