Windows 10: Windows explorer keeps refreshing whenever there is a file in folder

    Windows explorer keeps refreshing whenever there is a file in folder


    I have a new i5 desktop with the latest Windows 10 and everything works fine except 1 thing:
    When I open windows explorer and browse to a folder that has a htm or html file in it, all desktop icons and taskbar and the folder itself keeps refreshing. As soon as I change the name of the htm file to htm1 or something else, the refreshing stops.
    Has anyone any idea?

    Hi, this sounds like explorer crashing. Which program is associated with htm or html?

    Does the same thing happen in Safe Mode?

    If you launch that program, and then, using that program, browse to an html file and try to open it, what happens?

    What happens if you change the association of html files and launch explorer?

    History: was this ok once, and then the problem started to occur? How long ago?

    What does Reliability History show? There may be a red X to the crash- click on it and examine the brief report. Likewise see your event log- Event viewer.

    Hi,
    It did not happen in safe mode.
    The problem started after I installed many programs in my new PC. Assosciation of htm(l) files changed, but got same problem.
    Event viewer showed several problems, but nothing seemed to be related.
    I installed reimage repair and run it. When I selected to repair the found problems, I had to pay for this, which I didn't want, because I don't know if this would solve the problem (no cure no pay). I uninstalled reimage repair. Then I checked my problem again and it was solved. Seems reimage repair has done something good.
    regards
