I'm having the same problem. Can anyone help? Same as Wembley808 too. All apps are displaying an error message, I can only open file explorer and it won't turn off or restart
My problem in W10 was that when I logged in the desktop would show, icons on the desktop etc then everything would be locked out, not CTRL-ALT-DEL nothing, so I re-installed W7 and the problem still happened ! anyway long long story short I found the culprit ... Razer Orbweaver software.... If you have this GamePad basically boot to safe mode and look for the Service "Razer Game Scanner" and set it from "Automatic (Delayed)" to "Manual", reboot.. if you want to use your Orbweaver launch the Razer Snapse software.. worked for me.
Hey guys - seems as though I've run across the same problem.
When I go down to my toolbar to (eg choose a network connection....press the start bar....open my calendar)....I can't left click it. The little bar will show up above my mouse when I hover over, and I can right click....but I can't open anything down there.
I looked through the thread and I don't have any programs using up large amounts of CPU...the biggest is typically at 1%.
I am on a different AV now and it was working fine, until an update kill W10, back on W7 and ain't moving.
Hey guys, I seem to be experiencing similar problems. It started when I was trying to wake my computer from Sleep Mode and it did not turn on, hence I resorted to holding on the start button to restart it.
After which, my laptop proceeded on to reboot and start up again, all seems fine until I log in and reach my desktop page. All my icons disappeared and I could not access the Start Menu. I tried to get to the task manger hoping to restart the explorer.exe but I was unable to even get my task manager to start up. The cursor was mostly the spinning wheel of death and I could not click on anything. The screen would turn white if I attempted to click on anything else and a small text box would pop up stating that Windows is not running properly, asking if I wish to end the task. Clicking yes to that did not help- it still went back to the white screen and/or going to a full black screen with just my cursor.
I once again held down on the start button to do a manual shut down and start up again. Even tried to remove my battery but nothing seems to work. This went on for about 5 times possibly (I had tried to do the F8 way but the reboot options were different from the ones stated online hence I did not tamper much with it), until it finally started up properly and I got it run as normal.
A relief as all my documents and work files are on this laptop and I have urgent work that needs to be done, however I am not concerned that such a thing might happen again as I have yet to find out the problem behind all this. Any advice on what I should do?
Thank you very much!
likely your problem originates with whatever Antivirus you are using, whether its an old version with compatibility issues or an updating issue like my experience was.
