    Surface Pro 2017, Win10Pro x64: Explorer crash Windows.UI.XamlHost.dll


    Hi:

    I have periodic explorer crashes on my Surface Pro 2017, Win Pro x64 (it is fully updated; sfc /scannow does not reveal any integrity errors). The crash seems to occur periodically about every three to four days) after a Hello Windows log-in. It seems to involve Windows.UI.XamlHost.dll based on the below (from Event Viewer). It seems that it only occurs when the Surface is running on battery (it usually happens after I bring it home from uni). I have also created a crash dump which is here: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AoMjGh2ERllBc8EKXkv6nN8BqYk

    I have been trying to get suggestions on Microsoft Community for a few months: here is the six page thread (no big insights but you can see the various fixes which have been tried:
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-performance/surface-pro-2017-win-10-pro-x64-explorer-crash/06769606-9d50-4957-97fa-ebc789bd340b

    I am at a loss to understand what the problem is here. I am glad to disable Hello Windows if this would end the problem. Thanks in advance for any help on this

    ---------------------------
    When I look in the Event viewer I see errors like this:

    Event ID 1000

    Faulting application name: explorer.exe, version: 10.0.16299.125, time stamp: 0xfeba44fb

    Sorry should have added:
    I have updated my Intel graphics card and firmware (see p2 of the answers.microsoft.com post above)

    Just a small update: here is a new explorer crash dump. As I said, I get about three days between them roughly. I have not gotten any responses on this, but perhaps a mod could chime in on this?

    Have you contacted Microsoft? You should be under warranty, correct? Or have you considered resetting your system?

    Thanks for the response.

    I have had my surface since August, so I am out of technical support but still under warranty (well I assume so, I purchased it on Amazon). If I sent it back I would get a refurbished model right? Not too keen on that?

    Getting some Microsoft tech support would be quite helpful, but I am not sure how to even get that started.

    And I have never reset a Win10 computer. I assume that basically is like reinstalling the OS (and everything on this would be wiped out)?

    Thanks for any suggestions on this!

    Another crash in the meanwhile: Microsoft OneDrive - Access files anywhere. Create docs with free Office Online.

    It always happens when coming out of hibernation (or formerly sleep) when on battery.

    Another crash: Microsoft OneDrive - Access files anywhere. Create docs with free Office Online.

    Each time I am getting this the Hello Windows startup is a bit slow, it says something like get closer or looking for options, and then when I get in explorer has crashed. Is there a way to disable Hello Windows

    RE: Windows Hello. I don't use it so don't know much about it. I reckon it can be disabled via Settings App > Accounts > Sign In Options. That's just a guess

    RE: Explorer crashes. Maybe try this:

    explorer crashes Solved - Page 3 - Windows 7 Help Forums

    You'd need the version here instead of the version linked in the post:

    Puran Disk Cleaner Download


    Try deleting desktop.ini files in Dropbox folders then reboot. (Clear include list and just look for and delete desktop.ini files in dropbox folders)

    If the utility cannot detect ans scan Dropbox then it won't be of use. I don't use Dropbox so cannot test.

    Thanks Callender! That mainly seems to be about another cause, and I have already uninstalled DropBox a few weeks back since I thought that was the problem (it was not). I have also not installed Google Drive so not that either. Anyway will keep giving it a look, thanks!
