    Windows Explorer Keep Crashing After Every Updates?

    first of all i like win 10 but when is start doing its own things its a pain in the ass and annoying system.

    For the past few weeks since last few updates i have this annoying problem for example:
    When i boot my pc or launch its everything ok then windows explorer restart itself on his own and for example i cannot delete any files from my desktop, i get white files if i put some pictures there (on hardrives is normal icon) if i click on right click and open with on video i would get windows explorer not responding message? And i try everything suggested on forums no luck. ( cannot empty recycle bin i need to manualy click open and delete from inside ) (white file icon from picture)
    Windows 10 64 Bit Pro Right Click Freeze My Windows Explorer WTF!!?? - YouTube explorer message until i restart pc is ok for a while then its back)
    Thank you for any solution on this matter, because with that thing is impossible to work ) and im seriously thinking to go bac k on win 7 btw i upgrade it from 7 and im on win 10 64bit pro and this smells like bug to me!?) Oh one more thing gave us an option so we can update when we wanted back so it wont go off in the middle of work only downside from 10 on my end.

    A. file explorer
    1. Boot to Safe Mode. Does explorer crash then?
    2. When booted normally, if explorer is crashing, the first thing to suspect is some sort of shell extension- something added by a program.
    Use Shellexview, Shellmenuview (easy to find) to disable all non-Microsoft extensions.
    Then check explorer again.

    As a matter of routine, also check your disk and file system:
    a. First check your disk:
    Download and run Hard Disk Sentinel (trial) and make sure all disks are reported as good.
    If not, do not continue, and post back .

    b. Now check your file system:

    From an admin command or powershell prompt
    [Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
    chkdsk C: /F
    Your PC will need to restart.
    Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:

    B. Control of updates.

    You can use Active Hours (search that in Settings) to specify the period during which you don't want your PC to restartautomatically.
